More than 10 million people are under storm warnings in the Carolinas and Virginia according to the National Weather Service. Persons located within these areas should take all necessary actions to protect life and property from rising water and the potential for other unsafe conditions.
In Virginia, where about 245,000 residents were ordered to evacuate low-lying areas, officials urged them to stay in safer locations despite forecast changes showing Florence's path largely missing the state. Storm surge warnings indicate a danger of life-threatening inundation from rising water moving inland from the coastline during the coming 36 hours. A warning is typically issued 36 hours before the anticipated first occurrence of tropical-storm-force winds, conditions that make outside preparations hard or risky.
Hurricane preparations should be rushed to completion as soon as possible.
Aside from wind-shear dangers, concerns are now shifting to flooding and storm surge issues.

As Florence closed in, some residents weighed whether to ride it out. Its surge could cover all but a sliver of the Carolina coast under as much as 11 feet (3.4 meters) of ocean water, and days of downpours could unload more than 3 feet (0.9 meters) of rain, touching off severe flooding. She said a hurricane has a way of bringing everyone to the same level.
As of 8 p.m., the storm was centered 335 miles (540 kilometers) southeast of Wilmington, North Carolina, moving northwest at 16 mph (26 kph). This rainfall would produce catastrophic flash flooding and significant river flooding.
Meanwhile, the projections for rain are growing, adding to growing concerns about flooding across the two states: Coastal North Carolina now expects 20-30 inches, with isolated areas of 40 inches projected in SC.
Elsewhere in the Appalachians and Mid-Atlantic states...3 to 6 inches, isolated 12 inches.
