Hurricane Florence Looks Super-Scary When Seen From Space

Hurricane Florence: What you need to know to stay safe

According to Cooper, his state is at the center of the "bulls-eye" for Florence - which was located approximately 525 miles south-southeast of Bermuda, according to the latest advisory from the National Hurricane Center (NHC) in Miami, Florida.

The storm, which intensified dramatically from a Category 1 to a Category 4 hurricane on Monday, could roar ashore with winds of up to 150 miles per hour, according to the latest forecast from the National Hurricane Center.

Residents along the coast of South Carolina, North Carolina, Virginia and Maryland are preparing for the storm's arrival, which is predicted for Thursday.

The National Hurricane Center says the storm is gathering power as it moves towards land, and "is expected to be an extremely risky major hurricane" by Thursday.

In a tweet, the South Carolina Emergency Management Division (SCEMD) tweeted that "residents in all coastal evacuation zones in all counties must evacuate beginning at noon tomorrow, Tuesday, September 11, 2018".

A mandatory evacuation order takes effect Tuesday at noon in eight counties along South Carolina's 187-mile coastline.

In announcing his evacuation order, South Carolina Gov. Henry McMaster said an estimated 1 million people would be fleeing the coast.

We are in communication with the National Weather Service, state and local authorities, the Southeastern Conference, Marshall University and schools that other programs that we compete against this week regarding potential weather issues.

Every big airline that flies to the region had enacted a flexible rebooking policy for flyers ticketed to airports likely to be in Florence's path.

The possibility exists that the storm could be a Category 5, and that it will make North Carolina landfall as only its second Category 4 storm.

Florence could hit the Carolinas harder than any hurricane since Hazel packed 209kmh winds in 1954.

The storm has Category 4 winds of 140 miles per hour and is moving west-northwest at 13 miles per hour.

Families should prepare their emergency kits (keep scrolling for a list of items to put in them) and determine what they will do in case of a necessary evacuation.

Maue calculates that 34 million people will get at least 3 inches, with more than 5.7 million getting at least a foot and about 1.5 million getting 20 inches or more.

Chief Thavenet said they will not operate in high winds.

Simpson said his office had already begun planning for the impact of the hurricane.

The storm's path could change, though the National Weather Service gets more certain of its forecast as the window to landfall shortens.

With a mandatory evacuation order in place, St. Joseph's/Candler will be closing all practices in SC.

Amtrak is also waiving fees for travelers and said it will accommodate customers on other trains.

Hurricane Isaac is moving toward the Caribbean and could make landfall Thursday as a Category 1 hurricane.
