Trump urges ‘incredible’ people in Carolinas to take precautions for Hurricane Florence

Hurricane Florence approaches east US, set to become ‘extremely dangerous’ storm

Forecasters say that the storm will take a west-northwestward motion and will increase its movement over the next several days.

"The earliest reasonable time that tropical-storm-force winds will reach the coast of the Carolinas is Wednesday night, but the most likely time is Thursday morning", the National Hurricane Center said.

This travel alert allows customers whose travel plans may be impacted to rebook without penalty, the airline said in a news release Monday.

"This storm gets stronger and stronger" and is on its way to a head-on impact on the Carolinas, CNN meteorologist Chad Myers said.

There no coastal warnings or watches yet.

National Weather Service officials in Honolulu urged residents to remain careful, noting that the difference between a Category 1 hurricane and a tropical storm is just 5 miles per hour wind speed. Its centre will move between Bermuda and the Bahamas on Tuesday and Wednesday and approach the coast of South or North Carolina on Thursday, the National Hurricane Centre said.

'Harvey of the East Coast:' Florence's worst impact could be catastrophic flooding
The cone expands as Florence is forecast to make landfall late Thursday night into Friday morning along the coastal Carolina's. You are going to be displaced from your home in the coastal areas, and there will be flooding in the inland areas as well.

Hurricane Florence was upgraded to a Category 4 earlier on Monday, with President Donald Trump taking to Twitter to encourage those in its path to "take all necessary precautions".

Once the storm makes landfall, McMaster said, it's expected to move slowly, dumping extreme amounts of rain likely to cause flooding.

"Interests in the southeastern and mid-Atlantic states should monitor the progress of Florence".

"Large swells affecting Bermuda and portions of the US East Coast will continue this week".

On its current track, Florence is expected to slam the Carolinas and Virginia the hardest - and the three states issued emergency declarations to speed preparations. SC ordered an estimated 1 million people to evacuate its coast.

North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia have all declared a state of emergency ahead of the storm. The state has begun enforcing a law against price gouging. She grew up on the shore, and says this will be only the second time she's evacuated.

Florence becomes a hurricane; 2 other storms gain strength
The latest models on Saturday show that it's becoming less likely the storm will veer north and miss the mainland US entirely. The second week of September is the peak of hurricane season, so the flurry of activity is no surprise to forecasters.

McMaster also said in a news conference on Monday that officials will reverse the lanes on four big roads going away from the coast.

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. She had water in her basket along with other items.
