'It's coming straight for us': Canadians in Florence's path prepare for worst

Hurricane Hugo, the strongest hurricane ever to impact North Carolina, actually made landfall just north of Charleston, South Carolina in 1989 with 130 miles per hour (209 km/h) winds.

Forecasts project the center of Florence to make landfall around the South and North Carolina border on Friday as a Category 3 or 4 hurricane.

President Donald Trump declared states of emergency for North and SC and Virginia, opening the way for federal aid.

The latest projections of Florence, now a Category 4 storm, show it shifting south putting Georgia in its possible path. "With more than 300 miles of coastline in the path of the storm, it's important for [companies] like U-Haul to do what they can".

It could stall just off the coast and then drift south along the SC coast and possibly make a landfall as a weaker system if it doesn't make it clearly over the coast of North Carolina.

The Hurricane Florence forecast has gone from bad to worse
At this point, county and city agencies are operating at OPCON 3 as operations were ramped up a bit on Sunday morning. The hurricane could remain powerful as it passes over the United States mainland, the NHC warned on Monday morning.

For those in the path of the storm looking for a place to store their belongings, news organization WJZY has listed each U-Haul storage facility and address taking part in the 30-day program.

Georgia Governor Nathan Deal, concerned the storm would bring its devastation south, issued an emergency declaration for all 159 counties in the state.

"This storm is a monster".

Updated NHC forecasts showed the storm lingering near the coast of the Carolinas, carrying days of heavy rains that could bring intense inland flooding from SC to Virginia.

The National Hurricane Center says Hurricane Florence is expected to bring life-threatening storm surge and rainfall to portions of the Carolinas and mid-Atlantic states. As it turns into southern SC.

Bishops, he said, should be men of prayer, and should know they were chosen by God and keep close to their flock. Gaenswein's said Benedict's admonition was "apparently in vain, as we see today".

Power in some areas is likely to be out for several days, and storm surge is expected to flood widespread areas, he said, including inland regions of the state.

Despite the public's fascination with high winds, it turns out that most of the damage could come from the historic amounts of water the hurricane releases, climate and health experts told Live Science. "It's big, and it's vicious", he said.

In a videotaped message from the White House, President Donald Trump said the government is fully prepared for Florence but urged people to "get out of its way".

"We are already experiencing heavily impacted traffic on some of the evacuation routes", said Jeff Byard, the associate administrator for response and recovery at the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).

"We may not even get the worst of it until Saturday", Sharp said.
