Tropical Storm Isaac weakens in Caribbean

Hurricane Florence, Now a Category 4 Storm, on Track to Hit East Coast

Hurricane Florence, Now a Category 4 Storm, on Track to Hit East Coast

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 USA after Saturday.

Hurricane Florence is blowing sustained winds of up to 130 miles per hour as it barrels toward the US East Coast as a Category 4 storm. We live in a wonderful place but that's the cost of living here'. The report also said that some facilities for inmates in Virginia are also planning evacuations, according to the state's Departments of Corrections. Along the coastline devastating storm surge will be possible in addition to the high end category 3 winds.

More than a million people are expected to flee low-lying areas, as SC and Virginia ordered mandatory evacuations of coastal areas starting on Tuesday.

As of 11 a.m. EDT on Monday, Florence has been upgraded to a Category 4 storm.

The largest threat to life from hurricanes is not the high winds, officials said, noting that flooding is the deadliest result of these storms.

Those flexible-rebooking policies initially included airports in the Carolinas, Georgia and Virginia. "The waves and wind this storm may bring is nothing like you've ever seen".

Correction: A previous version of this story misidentified a photo of hurricane Florence as one of hurricane Helene; astronaut Ricky Arnold did not share a photo of the latter storm on Twitter. "Don't bet your life on riding out a monster".

Hurricane-force winds will reach the Carolina coasts late Thursday or early Friday.

President Donald Trump on September 11 declared states of emergency for North and SC, to open avenues for federal aid. He said the federal government is "absolutely, totally prepared" for Florence.

Even with some weakening that's predicted just before it makes landfall, the storm "is expected to remain a unsafe major hurricane as it approaches the coastline", the hurricane center said.

Hurricane Florence, which is now bigger than the size of MI state, is set to batter the North Carolina coastline with gale-force tropical winds and heavy rain towards the end of this week. People across the region rushed to buy bottled water and other supplies, board up their homes, pull their boats out of the water and get out of town.

North and SC and Virginia ordered mass evacuations along the coast, but getting out of harm's way could prove hard.

Hurricane Florence is the category 4 storm with the potential to bring devastation to the eastern side of America.

"Rapid strengthening is forecast, and Florence is forecast to become a major hurricane this morning, and is expected to remain an extremely unsafe major hurricane through Thursday", it said. "Pretend, assume, presume that a major hurricane is going to hit SC".

US President Donald Trump, whose administration faced severe criticism for a slow response in Puerto Rico to Hurricane Maria, cancelled a political rally planned for Friday in Jackson, Mississippi, over safety concerns related to Florence, his campaign said.

As for travelers, airlines serving destinations in Florence's projected path have started waiving change fees and are expecting widespread delays and cancellations.

"This will be a storm that creates and causes massive damage to our country".
