Industrial waste, including toxic ash from power plants, could also be spread by flooding from the massive storm, which has caused mandatory evacuations of coastal areas in both Carolinas and Virginia, the AP reports.

Some strengthening is forecast through Wednesday night, drawing energy from the warm water. It is likely to become a Category 5 before landfall.

In the image, Hurricane Helene and Hurricane Isaac can be seen circling the Atlantic Ocean while Storm 95L is on a collision course for the Caribbean. "This will allow us to take care of our community and also be prepared should the need arise to assist others", Walker said.

Florence is expected to make landfall between Thursday and Friday.

As Graham says, "just because you have a landfall to your south doesn't mean you're out of the woods, because the winds are huge around this system". Jeff Merkley's claim that the Trump administration diverted $10 million from FEMA to ICE for housing illegal immigrants caught up in the President Trump's zero tolerance policy at the border.

America's east coast is braced for the worst storm in many years with Hurricane Florence expected to strengthen into a near-Category 5 storm as it approaches the USA where 1.7 million people have been warned to get out of the way. That funding can not be spent on disaster response, they said.

Merkley provided no evidence for his suggestion that the money came from hurricane response funds.

"We are sparing no expense", Trump told reporters in the Oval Office after meeting with Department of Homeland Security and Federal Emergency Management Administration officials.

He says the time to flee Hurricane Florence is now.

"Today's the day", he said. But despite that, bad things can happen when you're talking about a storm this size.

A long stretch of the U.S. Eastern Seaboard remained vulnerable to hurricane and tropical storm conditions, from Georgia north through the Carolinas into Virginia.

The Category 4 storm was expected to start hitting the North and SC coasts sometime Thursday or Friday, and should make landfall near Wilmington, N.C., early Saturday morning, according to the latest forecast from the National Hurricane Center.

The mayor of a SC city in the path of powerful Hurricane Florence is warning citizens to get out or stay "at your own peril".

In Virginia, 245,000 coastal residents were ordered to evacuate.

North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper warned that staying put would be a grave mistake.

A satellite image shows Hurricane Florence looming in the Atlantic Ocean as the sun rises over the U.S. Florence is expected to bring tropical storm conditions to North Carolina and SC on Thursday and hurricane conditions on Friday.

That's saying a lot, given the impacts from Hurricanes Diana, Hugo, Fran, Bonnie, Floyd, and Matthew.

Historic and potentially catastrophic flooding is possible along with life-threating storm surges of up to 12 feet are possible along the coasts.

"The safety of the American people is my absolute highest priority".

A hurricane-hunter airplane measured 25-metre waves near the eye of Florence, according to a tweet from the National Hurricane Center. Duke Energy spokesman Ryan Mosier said operators would begin shutting down nuclear plants at least two hours before hurricane-force winds arrive. Rain will continue through Sunday, dumping feet of water over a wide area. Strengthening is forecast through Wednesday.

Motorists drive down I-40 westbound as the eastbound road is empty in advance of Hurricane Florence near Suttontown, North Carolina.

At 2 a.m., the storm was centered 625 miles (1,005 km) southeast of Cape Fear, North Carolina, moving at 17 mph (28 kph). Heavy rains were forecast to extend into the Appalachians, affecting parts of Alabama, Tennessee, Kentucky and West Virginia. Cars and trucks full of people and belongings streamed inland.
