Hurricane Florence Rocks Wooden Pier in Nags Head

14 Septembre, 2018, 10:57 | Auteur: Christine Menetries

Hurricane Florence carries a heavy risk of flash floods as it brings up to 13-foot storm surge and a possible 40 inches of rain to the Carolina coast.

At 11:00 pm (0300 GMT), Florence was over the Atlantic Ocean about 60 miles (95 kilometers) east-southeast of Wilmington, North Carolina, and moving northwest at six miles per hour, the NHC said. US President Donald Trump on Tuesday signed declarations of emergency for North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia, freeing up federal resources for storm response.

Some minor flooding was reported on the Outer Banks - barrier islands off the coast of North Carolina - and in some seaside coastal towns, as more than 110,000 power outages were reported statewide. People in the Carolinas had the daytime hours Thursday to complete their final preparations to ride out or escape the storm. "That's the second story of a house", North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper said Thursday morning.

Forecasters said it appears the storm will make landfall somewhere around Wrightsville Beach, North Carolina, which sits just east of Wilmington.

A Hurricane warning remains in effect from Edisto Beach in SC to South Santee River in Southern California.

The North Carolina Community Foundation (NCCF) is a local humanitarian organization based in North Carolina that partners with local charities that support the community - and is still ranked as a highly-rated charity now providing aid to the Carolinas ahead of Florence.

Forecasters are calling Hurricane Florence a "generational storm".

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

"On a scale of one to 10, I'm probably a seven in terms of worry, she said". Storm surge is why many of you have been placed under evacuation and we are asking citizens to please heed a warning.

It was not expected to threaten land any longer on Thursday.

"Leaving is such a problem with the traffic going out", Jennie told VOA Thursday afternoon as she strolled along the shore of Carolina Beach near Wilmington, North Carolina. "But even worse than that is coming back in because you don't know what you're coming back to".

Her friend Kate is refusing to evacuate as well because of "the idea of having to leave with my two cats and go somewhere for a week or more".

Horton pleaded for volunteers to take in their animals for the duration of the storm, a common, plaintive refrain at other shelters across the area. Meanwhile, evacuations are underway in the Philippines where Super Typhoon Mangkhut has reached the strength of a Category 5 hurricane.

More than 1 million people had been ordered to evacuate the coasts of the Carolinas and Virginia and thousands have moved to emergency shelters.

The coastal area of SC features hundreds of inlets while North Carolina has barrier islands miles away from the mainland.
