Hurricane Florence

Hurricane Florence on track to hit East Coast as major storm. Hurricane Florence has become a Category 3 storm, according to the National Hurricane Center. Florence has maximum sustained winds of 115 mph, and gusts up to 140 mph.

Further strengthening is expected as the storm moves toward the Carolinas, where it could unleash its fury as the most powerful storm to hit the area in three decades. The hurricane center forecasts Florence to hit the shore late Thursday night or early Friday morning.

People in Virginia, North Carolina and South Carolina are already on alert, and their governors have declared states of emergency. Ref. CNN

I believe it is a category 4 now with winds of 130. I believe it will hit around the South and North Carolina border and the big tourist town of Myrtle Beach. Will have to see if it makes it to a cat 5 storm or not in the nice warm waters it is crossing now.

Hurricane Florence slows dramatically as forecast track turns south; likely ‘storm of a lifetime’ for Carolinas. Hurricane Florence is now expected to slow down and turn south after making a roaring landfall along the East Coast, a forecast that could have dire consequences for South Carolina, meteorologists said Wednesday. The mammoth, Category 4 storm with its sustained winds of 130 mph is expected to reach the Carolinas overnight Thursday. More than a million people have been ordered to evacuate coastal areas. Ref. USAToday.

I have been watching this storm develop and I still think my earlier prediction is going to be right with it hitting along the North and South Carolina border and even Myrtle Beach area. I think this storm is going to cause a lot more damage than many are prepared for. We will see as the Weather channel and other officials have been telling people not evacuate. I am sure we will see a lot of people being rescued after the storm because they did not heed the warnings.

Florence Hurricane

Hurricane Florence has made landfall in North Carolina, but its crawling pace and overwhelming storm surges are setting up hours and hours of destruction and human suffering -- with dozens desperately awaiting rescue in one flooded town alone.

The Category 1 hurricane, with wind of more than 90 mph and dumping 3 inches of rain an hour, made landfall at 7:15 a.m. ET near Wrightsville Beach, just east of Wilmington.

Florence's center may linger for another whole day along coastal North and South Carolina -- punishing homes with crushing winds and floods and endangering those who've stayed behind. Source 7f.

As death toll from Florence hits at least 20, flooding could swamp the Carolinas for days or even weeks. It may take up to two weeks for all of the runoff to drain slowly downstream from the mountains to the coast, forecasters warned. As of midday Monday, 19 river gauges in the Carolinas were at "Major" flood stage, and record crests could be shattered in some communities. Ref. USAToday.

Did 'downgraded' Florence contribute to a false sense of security? The famed 1 to 5 Saffir-Simpson hurricane scale, which only measures wind speed, may not the best way to gauge a storm's ferocity, experts say. Hurricane Florence was 'downgraded,' even though it was becoming more dangerous. Source 8b.

And if it did it could be the reason for so many deaths and people staying instead of evacuating. People really need to get out of danger rather than trying to tough it out. Most homes aren't meant to withstand a hurricane unless you have a shelter in the ground and because of flooding an underground shelter won't be the best.
