  • All you need to know about 'tropical storms'

Hurricane Florence's strongest band of rain and wind yet is now moving through eastern North Carolina.

By late Thursday afternoon, the Carolina coasts can expect winds topping 80 miles per hour. "We're still going to have a Category 4 storm surge".

Although Florence has recently been downgraded to a Category 2 storm, it's still set to be devastating.

As the storm - with those winds - nears shallow water along the coast, its forces water inland.

Fierce winds and massive waves are expected to lash the coasts of North and SC and Virginia even before Florence makes landfall by early Friday, bringing a storm surge as much as 13 feet (4 meters).

In the meantime, "treat the inland flooding just as seriously as you would the storm surge", said Clark.

The problem from this hurricane is going to be its slow movement. The Weather Channel reported the storm is likely to make landfall either tonight or Friday, after which it will stall over the Southeast, producing buckets of rain that could accumulate to risky amounts.

"A slow westward to west-southwestward motion is expected Friday night and Saturday".

Forecasts generally project Florence to make landfall in southeastern North Carolina on Friday as a Category 3 or 4 hurricane.

The National Hurricane Centre said it was expected to keep drawing energy from the warm water and intensify to near Category 5, which means winds of 157 miles per hour or higher. The category ranking of storms only describes the speed of the storm's sustained winds. And an unusual combination of other weather systems that likely will stall Florence when it hits land, allowing it to sit for days and dump huge amounts of rain.

"This is a powerful storm that can kill", North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper warned as the storm began battering the coast Thursday.

Florence, a storm expected to significantly impact the U.S. Storm surge of 13 feet on top of a high tide at 7 feet could overwhelm Carolina Beach. Overall, the storm is 400 miles wide. The town is less than 5 feet above sea level and officials worry that as many as 1,000 of the town's 6,300 residents are planning to stay. Another 8 million people live in areas covered by hurricane and tropical storm warnings.

When a hurricane or some other weather-related disaster strikes, The Weather Channel quickly becomes one of the most-watched stations in an increasingly diversified television marketplace. "We're about to be in the thick of it".

The National Hurricane Center forecasts that it could be centered over southwestern Pennsylvania by early Tuesday morning, potentially bringing more rain to Maryland and another surge of floodwaters down an already swollen Susquehanna River.

"It truly is really about the whole size of this storm", National Hurricane Center Director Ken Graham said.

"I'm not approaching Florence from fear or panic", he said. And this, he said, is like nothing Toronto has ever seen.

Baker said the rain will bring damaging flash flooding to all areas of the Wilmington region, not just low-lying areas that are particularly vulnerable.

"It doesn't matter where you are", he said.

Inland flooding near New Bern, North Carolina caused by Hurricane Florence's storm surge as predicted by the ADCIRC computer model.

But the Miami-based NHC stressed it remained "a life-threatening situation" due to the risks of storm surge around coastal areas.

Streams of people are fleeing in cars as Hurricane Florence is expected to lash America with winds of up to 157mph - leaving coastal areas submerged in up to 9ft of water. As serene as the images are, it's hard to imagine what conditions are like in the storm and on the water under it.

Numerous communities throughout the region have issued either mandatory or voluntary evacuation orders.

At least 12,000 people had taken refuge in 126 emergency shelters, Cooper said, with more facilities being opened. On Wednesday, officials said some of those shelters were at capacity, but in a statement early Thursday, county officials said they were "able to mobilize additional resources to accommodate the need for shelter space".
