The hurricane center said, "All indications are that Florence will be an extremely unsafe Category 4 hurricane while it moves over the western Atlantic toward the southeastern United States".

North Carolina State University canceled classes beginning Sept. 12 at 5 p.m. until the evening of Sunday, Sept. 16, although dining and residence halls will remain open.

"The forecast places North Carolina in the bull's-eye of Hurricane Florence, and the storm is rapidly getting stronger", he said.

Larry Pierson purchases bottled water in Isle of Palms, South Carolina, in preparation for hurricane Florence.

"Where should residents of "Zone A" evacuate to?" An hour later, at noon, the agency tweeted that Florence had grown again to a Category 4, with maximum sustained winds near 130 mph.

The first effects were already being seen on barrier islands as risky rip currents hit beaches and seawater flowed over a state highway. If Florence slows to a crawl just off the coast, it could bring torrential rain to the Appalachian mountains and as far away as West Virginia, causing flash floods, mudslides and other unsafe conditions.

Half a dozen nuclear power plants, pits holding coal-ash and numerous hog farms are on the storm's path. In September of 1998 there were 4 hurricanes in the Atlantic at the same time.

"We are taking Hurricane Florence seriously".

"This is a big, big hurricane", McMaster said, noting that wind speeds are predicted to be more violent than in either of the the region's two most damaging storms of the past 30 years.

National Hurricane Center says swells generated by Florence are affecting Bermuda and portions of the U.S. East Coast. The storm will also be in a position where it can continue to collect more moisture from the Atlantic - and that's an alarming combination.

Gov. Rick Scott released a statement on Monday urging Floridians to be prepared for the unexpected and remain on alert about Hurricane Florence.

State government offices, including schools and medical facilities, will be closed in 26 counties, McMaster said.

Some forecasts call for Florence to stall out after it strikes the coast.

The National Hurricane Center said Monday that Hurricane Florence is now a Category 4 storm and continuing to intensify.

More than 400 hundred officers from the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division will be stationed in the coastal areas to help assists evacuation and protect property.

"I've been doing this since 1983", Roberts said as he completed an order for another 18-wheeler full of supplies.

It could be the worst hurricane to hit the Carolinas in over 60 years. Roberts said he's telling them to get out of town.

Added to this Florence is likely to slow down as she moves inland through Friday and the weekend bringing a "prolonged and exceptionally heavy rainfall event", according to the key message from the NHC.
