Marshall vs. SC game cancelled due to Hurricane Florence

Hurricane force winds are expected along portions of the coasts of SC and North Carolina and a hurricane warning is in effect there. Myrtle Beach is within an area under a hurricane warning that ran from South Santee River, South Carolina, to Duck, North Carolina, at 2pm local time.

The U.S. National Hurricane Center said in its latest update that Hurricane Florence now has 120 mph winds and is a Category 3 storm, located 385 miles southeast of Wilmington, North Carolina.

Elsewhere in the Appalachians and Mid-Atlantic states...3 to 6 inches, isolated 12 inches.

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.

Tropical storm-force winds extended 195 miles (315 kilometers) from Florence's center, and hurricane-force winds reached out 70 miles (110 kilometers).

If you are waiting to leave South Carolina's coast ahead of Hurricane Florence's expected landfall this weekend, the governor has a message for you: hurry up and get out.

But in Maryland, possible impacts were diminishing as the storm's track shifted to the south and west. Meteorologists at the National Weather Service's Baltimore/Washington forecast office said strong winds are "unlikely to be a factor" here, and heavy rain is expected to be a risk only for Southern Maryland and to the south.


Duke Energy, the nation's No. 2 power company, said Florence could knock out electricity to three-quarters of its 4 million customers in the Carolinas, and outages could last for weeks. The hurricane center said Florence will approach the coast Friday and linger for a while before rolling ashore.

Predictions are for Florence to be far more violent storm.

"This is a very risky hurricane", Mr McMaster said, adding that the evacuation order for coastal counties was "mandatory, not voluntary". "Disaster is at the doorstep and is coming in", he said in a tweet.

Wilmington, North Carolina, just north of where Florence appeared headed for shore, grew empty and quiet on Wednesday. Some models show the storm moving southward along the coast, bringing with it hurricane or tropical storm-like conditions to the Beaufort County area.

"I'm not going to put our personnel in harm's way, especially for people that we've already told to evacuate", Wrightsville Beach Police Chief Dan House said.

"There's really not a lot of good news", NOAA flight director Paul Flaherty said on "Shepard Smith Reporting".

"We could maybe get some outer bands or very, very outer bands of the hurricane", said Jeremy Geiger, a weather service meteorologist.
