Hurricane Florence from space

  • Trump Hurricane Florence looking ‘bigger than anticipated

Forecasters are predicting that Florence will make landfall in the Carolinas late Thursday or early Friday as a slightly weakened but still risky Category 3 hurricane.

Tropical storm winds are between 39 and 73 miles per hour, while hurricanes are 74 miles per hour or higher. But authorities warned it will still be an extremely risky hurricane.

CNN reports dire word from FEMA associate administrator Jeff Byard, who warns that this storm is not to be reckoned with.

The National Hurricane Center said the hurricane's peak winds have decreased slightly to 125 mph but the size of the wind field has increased to outwards of 70 miles from the center.

On Wednesday morning, the president urged those in the path of Florence to "get out of its way".

"Don't play games with it. We're going to stay tight and check on everybody", he said.

Hurricane Florence Wednesday 11 a.m. ET update.

Those included Topsail and North Topsail beaches in Pender and Onslow counties; Carolina, Kure and Wrightsville beaches in New Hanover County; and "low lying areas and sub-standard housing" in Brunswick County. Airlines had canceled almost 1,000 flights and counting.

"Usually the north and east side [of the storm] is where we see the highest rainfall amounts and the greatest tornado threat". He said they have been preparing with their natural gas unit.

And the storm surge, which could be as much as 12 feet in some areas, will be on top of sea level rise from climate change.


The European computer model has Florence veering before landfall and hovering for a couple days off the coast.

"The National Hurricane Middle forecasts extra strengthening for Florence earlier to it reaches the shoreline of North Carolina and SC early Friday, Sept. 14", NASA wrote within the description of the video.

Reacting to the possibility of a more southerly track, Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal declared an emergency but did not immediately order any evacuations. "Finally, I ask all Georgians to join me in praying for the safety of our people and all those in the path of Hurricane Florence".

The shift in the projected track had areas that once thought they were out of range anxious. He has warned residents that they are on their own if they refuse to leave. "Now it might be time for the exam", he said.

More than one million people were ordered to evacuate as the hurricane crept closer to Carolina.

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. "You're going to be displaced from your home in coastal areas".

Making matters worse for insurers, forecasters say that Florence may stall over land, potentially dumping rain for days and causing power failures.

Mass evacuations in the Carolinas and Virginia are starting the clock ticking on business-interruption insurance policies, which help replace lost income for companies when natural disasters strike. "Everyone was sold out", she said. They are now flying into Isaac and also have a plane ready for storm recovery after Florence hits. Irma, which hit Florida at about this same time previous year, sent power demand in the Southeast down by around 2.5 Bcf/d from peak to trough (mostly in Florida), and total demand destruction in the power sector from Irma was about 10 Bcf over a seven-day period. In 2016, the state gave the company until August 1, 2019, to dig up and close some coal-ash pits and nearly a decade more to deal with others.

"It's been really nice", Nicole Roland said.
