Evacuations in USA ahead of Hurricane Florence

Washington Post: "Category 4 Hurricane Florence drawing closer to Carolinas and threatens "catastrophic" flooding" - "Expanding in size, violent Hurricane Florence is continuing on a beeline toward the East Coast as an "extremely dangerous" Category 4 hurricane. Don't bet your life on riding out a monster", he said.

The National Hurricane Center's projected track had Florence hovering off the southern North Carolina coast from Thursday night (Friday NZT) until landfall Saturday morning (Sunday NZT) or so, about a day later than previously expected.

"This one really scares me", National Hurricane Center Director Ken Graham said.

The time to prepare is nearly over, he said.

The storm is still on track to make landfall in the coastal carolina region, but is starting to drift south. Officials say it is possible SC will bear the brunt of Hurricane Florence. Their mission will likely last for at least 10 days, according to Pete Piringer, a spokesman for Montgomery County Fire. But the change was probably temporary and didn't do anything to lessen the danger, said Jeff Byard, an administrator with the Federal Emergency Management Agency. In North Carolina, Cooper says, "2,800 soldiers will be on active duty, joined by even more on standby".

Industrial waste, including toxic ash from power plants, could also be spread by flooding from the massive storm, which has caused mandatory evacuations of coastal areas in both Carolinas and Virginia, the AP reports.

Florence will bring large rainfall totals through Saturday in North Carolina, north SC and Virginia, causing catastrophic flash flooding.

Almost 1000 prisoners in SC will not be moved from their cells, despite a mandatory evacuation order in the area.

Col. Glenn McNeill with the North Carolina State Highway Patrol said troopers are on standby statewide to assist where needed.

With Hurricane Florence bearing down on the East Coast, is it time for a radical rethink on what it means to be prepared?

Nathan Deal (R) on Wednesday declared a state of emergency for the entire state as Hurricane Florence takes aim at the southeast.

Some areas are expected to see between 20 and 30 inches of rain through early next week in the area shaded in purple in the second image above. Parts of North Carolina could get 1m of rainfall.

Florence will be, in all likelihood, the most intense storm to strike the region in at least 25 years, since Hugo. It's a horrifying spectacle to behold, and the hurricane hasn't even struck land yet.
