Louisiana first responders head to Carolinas ahead of Hurricane Florence

NASA shows Hurricane Florence over the Atlantic Ocean seen from the International Space Station, in space on Sept. 10 2018

The initial damage is likely due come from the high winds and storm surge-high tides carried by the winds--and then by the enormous soaking it will likely leave in both North and SC, as well as Virginia, as it moves slowly inland. "Please be prepared, be careful and be SAFE!"

"There's just certain times of year when you just don't want to put waste on fields", said Mike Yoder, an associate director and coordinator for emergency-response programs at North Carolina State University Extension.

Other forecasters have predicted that Florence could also stall over Virginia, the Carolinas, and several mid-Atlantic states for possibly several days, which would bring catastrophic flooding to the area.

A line of heavy traffic moved away from the coast on Interstate 40, the main route between the port city of Wilmington and inland Raleigh.

Meanwhile, Hurricane Florence was 580 miles south, south east of Bermuda with winds of 115 mph and strengthening into a major storm.

In the worst-case scenario, Florence could become the harshest hurricane to hit the country in terms of financial pain.

At least 250,000 more people were due to be evacuated from the northern Outer Banks in North Carolina on Tuesday after more than 50,000 people were ordered on Monday to leave Hatteras and Ocracoke, the southernmost of the state's barrier islands. The decisions were made as Florence appears set to come ashore along the Carolinas' coastline late Thursday or early Friday with strong winds and heavy rain. The crew gathers information on wind speeds, wind direction, pressure, temperature and humidity to help NOAA make more accurate forecasts of the storm's intensity and path.

Closer to Raleigh, Durham and Greensboro the forecast is a bit more uncertain. "We're kind of at the mercy of the storm". The water has the potential to reach the following heights above ground if peak surge occurs at the time of high tide...

"Inland flooding will be a major threat and something people far from the landfall location should be concerned about", CNN meteorologist Brandon Miller said.

"On the forecast track, the center of Florence will move over the southwestern Atlantic Ocean between Bermuda and the Bahamas through Wednesday, and approach the coast of North Carolina or SC on Thursday".

Seven-day rainfall totals are forecast to reach 10 to 20 inches over much of North Carolina and Virginia, and even 30 inches in some places. Charlotte, North Carolina could take a direct hit, according to the National Weather Service.

Paula Matheson of Springfield, Oregon, got the full Southern experience during her 10-week RV vacation: hot weather, good food, lovely beaches and, now, a hurricane evacuation. Having grown up in storm-prone Florida, she said she's careful not to underestimate any hurricane. "Even if you've ridden out storms before, this one is different".

"This is going to be a marathon event", FEMA Administrator Brock Long said Tuesday on "CBS This Morning".

"This is a huge storm", said Robert Woodward, chairman of the Dare County Board of Commissioners.

The National Hurricane Center (NHC) said the storm is expected to regain strength Tuesday and "is expected to be an extremely risky major hurricane through landfall". However, tropical storm force winds of 40 miles per hour could develop as early as Thursday morning.
