More than one million under evacuation as Hurricane Florence nears Carolinas

  • Hurricane Florence Strengthened into a Category 1 storm Sunday morning. The current track projects the storm to become a Category 4 as she nears the Cape Fear region

Fox News senior meteorologist Janice Dean provides update on storm track.

Further strengthening is expected, as Florence moves toward North and SC, where it could unleash its fury as the most powerful storm to hit the area in three decades.

The current projected path takes Florence toward the USA coast, and has her making landfall in North Carolina in the afternoon on Thursday, September 13.

Hurricane Florence's path could still change over the next four days, but it's looking increasingly likely that Charlotte and the city's surrounding communities will feel a taste of the storm's power.

Where is the hurricane now? This has every chance of being a historic landfalling hurricane for the North Carolina coastline should the track remain unchanged. Its center will move between Bermuda and the Bahamas on Tuesday and Wednesday and approach the coast of SC or North Carolina on Thursday, the National Hurricane Center said.

The NHC also says the storm could become more powerful. The National Hurricane Center will likely start to issue warnings for Florence Tuesday.

What else should I know?

Impacts from high wind, storm surge and inland river flooding could be "extreme", according to the weather service, especially considering the storm could stall over North Carolina, spinning bands of rain that could total 20 inches in some locations.

A supervisor at the North Carolina emergency management office was welcoming workers back and telling them to prepare for a long week.

Very seriously. That was the message North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper delivered Monday morning.

The storm has 115 mph winds and is located 580 miles south-southeast of Bermuda and is moving west at 13 mph.

The vessels will get underway from Naval Station Norfolk and Joint Expeditionary Base Little Creek to avoid potential damage from winds and tidal surges, Pentagon spokesman Colonel Rob Manning said.

It may bring catastrophic levels of rain and flooding to coastal and inland regions.

The National Hurricane Center predicted Monday that Florence would be a category 4 storm with winds of 135 miles per hour at landfall. The early projections show a 20-30"+ rainfall forecast, winds over 110 miles per hour, and a major storm surge!"

Oliva said various models have the storm's eye making landfall anywhere between Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, and Cape Hatteras in the Outer Banks.

The latest forecast from the National Hurricane Centre said the storm winds have reached 75mph (120kph), which means it is now at hurricane strength.

He says coastal and low-lying areas are of particular concern, as well as parts of the state that already have received substantial rainfall over the last few days.

Trump tweeted Monday afternoon that the federal government was monitoring the storm and was ready to help.

Navy ships off Virginia's coast were preparing to sail out of the path, a North Carolina university has already canceled classes and people have begun stocking up on plywood, bottled water and other supplies.
