NASA Releases Footage Of Hurricane Florence And Her 'Mike Tyson Punch'

The North and SC coasts are on high alert as residents brace for Hurricane Florence's brutal lashing. The math was based on the projected state average of 10.1 inches of rainfall for that time span.

So far, more than one million people along the coasts of North and SC and southern Virginia have fled.

"This rainfall would produce catastrophic flash flooding and significant river flooding", the WPC tweet said.

The blasting wind and surging water may also damage some of the 16 nuclear reactors located in North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia.

Florence is expected to make landfall late Thursday or early Friday (Sept. 13 or 14), likely as a Category 3 hurricane, meaning it will have winds blowing at a minimum of 111 miles per hour (178 km/h), Samson said.

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

As of 11 a.m., the Category 4 storm was centred 485 miles (785 kilometres) southeast of Wilmington, moving at 15 mph (24 kph) with the potential for 1 to 3 feet of rain in places - enough to touch off catastrophic flooding and an environmental disaster, too, if the water inundates the region's many industrial waste sites and hog manure ponds.

No storm watches or warnings are in effect for Georgia, but forecasters warned that the monster storm could hesitate just offshore for days - punishing a longer stretch of coastline harder than previously feared - before pushing inland over the weekend.


Speaking at a news conference, the official said the hurricane was expected to spread out into the Central Appalachian mountains, the Tennessee Valley, and southeastern parts of the United States after Saturday. 'It is big and it is vicious'.

Meanwhile the hurricane is forecast to dump one to two foot of rain that could cause flooding well inland and wreak environmental havoc by washing over industrial waste sites and farms.

Cooper added: "The waves and the wind this storm may bring is nothing like you've ever seen".

"This is not a storm that people need to ride out", Cooper told reporters.

President Donald Trump has declared states of emergency for North and SC and Virginia, saying the USA government is "absolutely, totally prepared" for Florence.

Briefing from the Oval Office, President Donald Trump urged people to heed orders to evacuate, saying "if you are asked to leave, get out".

Hurricane Florence continues to barrel towards the East Coast.
