Hurricane Florence looms over East Coast — WHAT’S HAPPENING

Marshall vs. South Carolina game cancelled due to Hurricane Florence

As the massive storm is predicted to wallop the area, there are ways to alleviate the stress of an approaching hurricane and be prepared. St. Helena Island near the South Carolina-Georgia line is used to riding out big storms - from one that killed an estimated 2,000 people in 1893 to Tropical Storm Irma past year.

Interests elsewhere in the southeastern and mid-Atlantic states should monitor the progress of Florence. The rainfall may produce life-threatening flash floods.

The National Weather Service now projects Florence will pass through the center of the Columbia metro area mid-day Sunday. But previous research has shown that the strongest hurricanes are getting wetter, more intense and intensifying faster because of human-caused climate change.

"To all in the path of these storms: Be safe, be ready and follow the advice of local officials". When Hurricane Floyd made landfall near Cape Fear in 1999 as a Category 2 storm, bloated carcasses of hundreds of thousands of hogs, chickens and other drowned livestock bobbed in a nose-stinging soup of fecal matter, pesticides, fertilizer and gasoline so toxic that fish flopped helplessly to escape it.

"The Church continues to monitor conditions on the ground and will make any necessary adjustments as the storm progresses". A watch is typically issued 48 hours before the anticipated first occurrence of tropical-storm-force winds, conditions that make outside preparations hard or unsafe.

Forecasters expected some strengthening in the next 36 hours, as Florence marched west-northwest at 20kmh.

A life-threatening storm surge is now highly likely along portions of the coastlines of SC and North Carolina, and a storm surge warning is in effect for a portion of this area.

NASA Releases Footage Of Hurricane Florence And Her 'Mike Tyson Punch'
In the midst of what's being called a "monster storm", some USA residents are welcoming Hurricane Florence with parties. Ten years ago today, Hurricane Ike made landfall as "only" a Category 2 hurricane along Galveston Island near Houston.

According to the NHC forecast at 5 p.m. on September 12, the storm is forecast to slow down near the coast of North and SC before it passes over the states and into Georgia.

The outer bands of wind and rain from a weakened but still lethal Hurricane Florence began lashing North Carolina on Thursday as the monster storm moved in for a prolonged and potentially catastrophic stay along the Southeast coast that could drench the homes of as many as 10 million people.

The reconnaissance aircraft found that maximum sustained winds have decreased to near 125 miles per hour (205 km/h) with higher gusts. Some fluctuations in strength will be possible through Thursday morning.

Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 70 miles (110 km) from the center and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 175 miles (280 km).

"This will likely be the storm of a lifetime for portions of the Carolina coast", it said early Wednesday. "The cancellation of the game will free up hotel rooms across the Midlands for evacuees and allows emergency personnel to be utilized in areas impacted by the storm". The water has the potential to reach the following heights above ground if peak surge occurs at the time of high tide...

Coastal North Carolina...20 to 30 inches, isolated 40 inches. The flooding in southeast North Carolina and northeast SC might be "unprecedented", according to the agency. For those in any region that is forecasted to get around or above 4 to 6 inches of rain, take special note. But the storm, almost 300 miles wide, is expected to pick up strength over the warm waters of the Atlantic before making landfall.
