"Today the threat becomes a reality".

"We're a little anxious about the storm surge so we came down to see what the river is doing now", said Linda Smith, 67, a retired nonprofit director.

"Sometimes these systems, they expand", she said. "We have to keep watching".

More than 80,000 people are already without power, and forecasters have warned that conditions will only get more lethal as the storm pushes ashore in the early hours of Friday morning. The prospect of even more rain across Pennsylvania anxious Port Deposit Mayor Wayne Tome Sr. on Thursday.

"This storm will bring destruction", North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper said. "We're watching how it tracks when it comes inland".

After landfall, the storm is expected to linger over the area for a few days, which would result in rising river levels and lakes.

"It truly is really about the whole size of this storm", National Hurricane Center Director Ken Graham said.

We are holding out hope for all of those who are in the path of the storm, but for any of you who aren't convinced that Florence has the potential to be deadly, then look no further than this live streaming video from the Bogue Inlet Pier in Emerald Isle, North Carolina, where the sky has darkened and the waves are crashing violently.

Despite pleas from officials, some residents ignored calls to evacuate. A surge of at least 4 feet is predicted for a much larger area.

Baltimore Gas and Electric Co. spokeswoman Linda Foy said the utility has withdrawn requests for extra help from crews in other states.

Despite the drop in maximum sustained winds, forecasters stress that this hurricane is not to be taken lightly.

"If you live in a low-lying area that has flooded in the past three years, now is the time to evacuate".

Cooper said 108 shelters are open across the state, with more than 7,000 people already staying at them, as of Thursday afternoon. The winds had been as high as 140 miles per hour earlier in the week.

Two detention facilities in SC that are within government-mandated evacuation zones will not relocate inmates ahead of Hurricane Florence's landfall there. By leaving his executive order declaring a statewide emergency in place, the state will be ready, if necessary, Hogan spokeswoman Amelia Chasse said. "Many that will accept them only allow one per room. All across the state of North Carolina and portions of SC, there will be extreme flooding or major flooding at least for a number of days to come".
