NASA Releases Footage Of Hurricane Florence And Her 'Mike Tyson Punch'

Hurricane Florence from space

Even with some weakening that's predicted just before it makes landfall, the storm "is expected to remain a risky major hurricane as it approaches the coastline", the hurricane center said.

Wednesday afternoon's announcement came after a Wednesday morning forecast that predicted a slight southern shift in Florence's path that could increase the impact in the Midlands.

The storm, which is building up over the Atlantic, is due to make landfall in either North or SC within the next few days, and is expected to be the worst storm to hit the area in 30 years. Shelters in the city were filling and some people were being bused inland to Raleigh, even though some residents there were told they might have to evacuate because of flooding. The storm will bring dangerously high amounts of rain, forecasters say. Experts are saying Florence, a "monster", could be one of the most powerful storms to ever hit the East Coast.

North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper said his state is "in the bullseye" and urged people to "get ready now".

A view of Hurricane Florence is shown churning in the Atlantic Ocean in a west, north-westerly direction heading for the eastern coastline of the United States, taken by cameras outside the International Space Station on September 12, 2018.

On Wednesday morning, the storm was about 550 miles from the Carolina coast and remains a Category 4 storm with 130 mph winds.

The storm was heading for the coast of North and SC but heavy rain was also expected in Virginia to the north and Georgia to the south.

Residents in coastal areas should follow evacuation orders from local officials because of the potential for life-threatening storm surge flooding.

A hurricane warning - meaning hurricane conditions are expected within 36 hours - is in effect for a long stretch of the coast, from the Santee River in SC to Duck, N.C., which is part of the Outer Banks. The entire coastlines of North and SC, in addition to some parts of southeastern Virginia, are under a mandatory evacuation plan.

"But I'm staying", she said.

As of Tuesday, more than 1.7 million people in the Carolinas and Virginia were warned to clear out.

Their entire neighborhood evacuated in Wilmington, North Carolina, David and Janelle Garrigus planned to ride out Florence at their daughter's one-bedroom apartment in Charlotte. All interests from SC into the mid-Atlantic region should complete preparations and follow any advice given by local officials.

The category four hurricane is set to bring with it heavy rains and winds of up to 225 kilometres per hour.
