Time nearly up: Fierce Hurricane Florence aims at southeast US

Monster hurricanes new track exceptionally bad news

Most of those cancellations are tied to the approaching hurricane, now a Category 2 storm with winds expected onshore late Thursday at more than 80 miles per hour.

Outside this zone of destructive winds, damaging winds are still likely, even some distance inland from the coast, which would lead to minor structural damage, downed trees and widespread power outages.

The storm's centre is expected to make landfall Friday (local time) in southeast North Carolina, which will coincide with the most severe effects.

He added: 'The waves and the wind this storm may bring is nothing like you've ever seen. It was moving 10 miles per hour toward the Port City, the advisory said. "A turn toward the west-northwest and west at an even slower forward speed is expected by tonight and continuing into Friday, and a slow west-southwestward motion is forecast Friday night and Saturday", the bulletin said. We woke up today and saw the storm is looking less scary! Water kills more people in hurricanes than wind, and he said it will still be an extremely unsafe storm for rain and storm surge.

Hurricane warnings are in effect for the South Santee River in SC to Duck, North Carolina, and Albemarle and Pamlico sounds.

North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper urged residents to remain alert despite changing forecasts.

She said: "Helene is moving up from the Atlantic towards us".

"We expected it to strengthen and then as it approached the coast to weaken somewhat", Abrams says.

Florence's worst aspect: its slowing down and stalling over coastal areas, causing up to 19-foot storm surges, and dropping from 6 to 40 (!) inches of rain. Airlines canceled almost 1,000 flights and counting.

Weather forecasts estimate that the Category 2 storm could dump 17 trillion gallons of rain on the East Coast.

Instead he worked with players rehabbing, which also included receiver Davante Adams . "You're just taking it one day at a time". Wearing a brace could be an option, depending on how the quarterback feels later in the week.

As of Thursday morning, Hurricane Florence has weakened to 110 miles per hour as it contends with slightly increased wind shear and drier air.

In fact, state rainfall records may be broken as rainfall totals reach 20-to-30 inches or higher. "A lot of rain", said Maj.

Torrential rains brought about significant flooding in some areas, with the rains expected to continue over Oahu through Thursday.

"You put your life at risk by staying", Cooper said. "It will probably fall faster than it can leave. There will be some rain but at the moment it doesn't look as though that's going to be the issue".

Hurricane Florence, growing in size despite its weakening winds on Wednesday (Sept 12), crept closer to the US East Coast as disaster mobilisations expanded south from the Carolinas into Georgia to counter the deadly threat of high seas and floods. It is now heading towards the US East Coast that it is predicted to hit on Friday.

About 5.25 million people live in areas under hurricane warnings or watches, and 4.9 million in places covered by tropical storm warnings or watches, the National Weather Service said. However, meteorologists are warning that people in its path are still facing unsafe, life-threatening conditions. "Persons located within these areas should take all necessary actions to protect life and property from rising water and the potential for other risky conditions", the hurricane center briefing said.

Florence's weakening as it neared the coast created tension between some who left home and authorities who anxious that the storm could still be deadly. On Thursday morning, South 17th Street, usually teeming with commuter traffic by 6:30 a.m., was almost devoid of cars.

"They try to stay open as long as they can", Kourounis said.

"In [regions] where we have known precipitation extremes, we have been able to detect an increase in precipitation extremes due to a warming climate."
