  • Emiratis in United States warned as Hurricane Florence approaches east coast

"Hurricane Florence will be a life-changing event for many people in the Carolinas".

"Please be prepared, be careful and be SAFE", he wrote.

Florence, a Category 3 hurricane, was about 370 miles (595 km) east-southeast of Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, with maximum sustained winds of 115 miles per hour (185 km per hour), the Miami, Florida-based weather forecaster said. "We'll handle it. We're ready, we're able". "If you are in one of the evacuation zones, you need to leave now".

Florence is now expected to pass over much of SC, with storm force winds beginning Thursday and hurricane force winds on Friday, said John Quagliariello with the National Weather Service in Columbia.

At the White House, President Donald Trump both touted the government's readiness and urged people to get out of the way of Florence.

Florence's nighttime winds were down to 115 miles per hour (185 kph) from a high of 140 miles per hour (225 kph), and the Category 4 storm fell to a Category 3, with a further slow weakening expected as the storm nears the coast.

In multiple interviews Miller said he had started using drugs including cocaine and opiates when he was just 15 years old. It's been nearly one week since Malcolm McCormick, better known as Mac Miller , died from an apparent drug overdose .

Maryland, North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia and Washington states have all already declared states of emergency ahead of the storm.

Gov. Henry McMaster is not yet issuing mandatory evacuation orders for Jasper and Beaufort counties, but officials have not ruled out the possibility of another evacuation order.

"I'm not approaching Florence from fear or panic", said Brad Corpening (35), who planned to ride out the storm in his boarded-up delicatessen in Wilmington.

Officials in New Hanover County, which includes Wilmington, have stockpiled enough food and water for 60,000 people for four days, along with more than 28,000 tarps. "But no matter how bad it's going to be, it will pass and our job will be to rebuild this community together, and that's what we're going to do".

The National Hurricane Center's best guess was that Florence would blow ashore as early as Friday afternoon around the North Carolina-South Carolina line, then push its rainy way westward with a potential for catastrophic inland flooding.

On its current track, Florence is expected to hit the Carolinas and Virginia the hardest, the NHC said.
