Environ 1,7 million de personnes ont donc été sommées de se mettre à l'abri, loin du littoral. Le gouverneur de Caroline du Sud, Roy Cooper, craint des glissements de terrain. "Les inondations représentent un risque important ici et ceux qui ont le moins de moyens sont souvent les plus touchés", a-t-il souligné. "Il est impératif que chacun suive les ordres d'évacuation locaux".

L'ouragan, rétrogradé en catégorie 1 vendredi matin, reste tout de même dangereux, a averti le Centre national des ouragans (NHC).

Plusieurs États, en plus de la capitale fédérale, Washington, ont déclaré l'état d'urgence depuis lundi, soit les deux Carolines, la Virginie, le Maryland et la Georgie.

Pourtant, quand l'ouragan Florence a baissé d'intensité, une cinquantaine de personnes ont quitté leur refuge près de Myrtle Beach, en Caroline du Sud.

La pluie commence à tomber alors que les bandes extérieures de l'ouragan Florence atteignent la côte de Myrtle Beach, en Caroline du Sud. "Les vents soutenus ont faibli à 205 km/h avec des rafales plus fortes", a précisé le NHC dans son bulletin de 14H00 (18H00 GMT). Ce qui n'empêche pas certains habitants de "fêter" l'ouragan.

There will also be full scholarships for Montessori-inspired preschools in "underserved" communities, he said. Mr Bezos - reportedly worth more than $164bn - has faced criticism for not doing more philanthropic work.

Le temps est maintenant compté avant l'arrivée de l'ouragan Florence, une tempête qualifiée de monstre qui pourrait affecter plus de 10 millions d'habitants. "La menace des vents s'est un peu éloignée, mais cela reste un ouragan très dangereux et puissant ". "Nous sommes prêts pour le gros qui arrive!", ajoute-t-il. "Les inondations à l'intérieur des terres sont très meurtrières et c'est ce qui va arriver", a averti Brock Long, chef de l'Agence fédérale des situations d'urgence (Fema).

Quelque 2.800 membres de la Garde nationale ont été réquisitionnés en Caroline du Nord.

"Ça va être méchant".

Une enseignante de Hillsborough, en Caroline du Nord, a décidé de défier l'ouragan, espérant qu'il ne soit pas aussi destructeur que ce que les autorités ont laissé entrevoir.
