  • How Is Hurricane Florence Affecting You?

But the landfall intensity of that storm was 250 km/h when it hit Puerto Rico, it added.

Helene - 490km west of the Cape Verde islands off the African coast - has winds up to 150km/h and is expected to continue moving west-northwest for another couple of days, the NHC said in its bulletin.

Carrying winds of up to 140 miles per hour (220 kph) as a Category 4 storm, Hurricane Florence is expected to approach Category 5 status on Tuesday as it slows and strengthens off North and SC.

"Further strengthening is anticipated and Florence is expected to be an extremely unsafe major hurricane through Thursday", the NHC said in a statement.

"Never have we seen quite this type of a storm approach us". "We'll handle it. We're ready, we're able".

"It doesn't matter what happened in (previous) storms", said LaRoche, a social services director.

The UK Foreign Office (FCO) said in its travel advisory: "Hurricane Florence is forecast to bring life-threatening weather conditions to North Carolina and SC, with potential effects in coastal Georgia and Virginia".

"This storm gets stronger and stronger" on its way to a head-on impact with a zone that ranges some 80 miles, Myers said.

"This one is hard", she said, having been through hurricane damage before. "It's expected to be a large storm so it will have impacts well away from the center". It was centered about 1,230 miles (1,985 kilometers) east-southeast of Cape Fear, North Carolina, and moving west at 13 mph (20 kph).

South Carolina Gov. Henry McMaster said an estimated 1 million people would be fleeing his state's coast, with eastbound lanes of Interstate 26 heading into Charleston and US 501 heading into Myrtle Beach reversed to ease the exodus. SC governor Henry McMaster also suspended his campaign and asked President Donald Trump for a federal emergency declaration.

"We are marshaling every available resource to ensure maximum preparation for rapid response". "I encourage Georgians to be prepared for the inland effects of the storm as well as the ensuing storm surge in coastal areas".

Thousands have also been ordered to evacuate the outer banks of North Carolina, the Charlotte Observer reports: "A State of Emergency was declared Monday on North Carolina's Hatteras Island, with islanders and tourists leading what is expected to be a complete evacuation of coastal Dare and Hyde Counties".

Carrying winds of up to 220 km/h, Hurricane Florence - a Category 4 storm - is expected to strengthen and possibly become Category 5 on Tuesday.

The eastbound lanes of several major highways have been shut to allow traffic to flow inland, but the exodus was slow along roads jammed with outward-bound vehicles. And right now, the bull's eye is our city, Wilmington. "There's nobody left to work. We know we can't play around with this", said Jennifer Oosterwyk, who owns the Sugar Britches boutique on Holden Beach and lives in nearby Wilmington. "This is probably the only exercise I get this week".

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

Historically, 90 percent of fatalities from hurricanes, tropical storms and tropical depressions have been caused by water, NHC spokesman Dennis Feltgen said.
