  • This enhanced satellite image made available by NOAA shows Hurricane Florence off the eastern coast of the United States on Wednesday

Hurricane Florence is making landfall in North Carolina, creeping ashore at 6 miles per hour - but bringing winds of 90 miles per hour, a massive storm surge, and a rain system that will soak much of the state and SC for days.

People in the storm's path shared video on social media of the now-Category 1 hurricane's still-intense 90 miles per hour (150 km/h) winds as the eyewall moved through Wilmington, North Carolina.

As of Friday morning, Atlantic Beach, a town on North Carolina's Outer Banks barrier island chain, already had received 30 inches (76 cm) of rain, the U.S. Geological Service said.

The Hurricane Center's Dennis Feltgen reiterated that warning, saying 90 percent of hurricane-related deaths are from problems that arise with the massive amounts of water.

Folks in Charleston, South Carolina, who have chosen not to evacuate, are preparing for a nasty storm that could make landfall right in their backyard.

One video, below shows the effect from a potential storm surge which could rise up to 9 feet in some areas. These sustained winds will continue through much of the weekend.

More than 1,925 flights have been cancelled with most regional airports along the coast now closed until Saturday.

Hurricane Florence is a real, ongoing threat. It could then head west and southwest. Isolated areas could get 40 inches.

The impact is expected to be similar to that of Hurricane Harvey on the Houston area previous year, Feltgen said. Forecasters warn it will bring "catastrophic freshwater flooding", according to the National Hurricane Center.

Hurricane Florence makes turbulent arrival with strong winds, bands of rain

Paul Manafort reaches ‘tentative’ plea deal with Robert Mueller
Mueller is investigating Russia's role in the 2016 US election and whether Trump's campaign colluded with Moscow to help him win. He resigned in August 2016 following a news report linking him to payments from Yanukovych's pro-Russia political party.

It is the storm's movement and not its strength that has forecasters and officials anxious.

FEMA has warned that while downgraded, the storm will still generate life threatening storm surge and rainfall in North and SC.

Tens of thousands are without power in North Carolina. "So if you're on the beach the time to go is now".

The county had been conducting water rescues since Thursday, Parker said. "Waffle House has vowed that they'll try to keep the place open for as long as the powers on".

"But we can't replace us so we chose to come here". As many as 1.5 million people are believed to live within mandatory evacuation zones.

"(It's) very eerie, the wind howling, the rain blowing sideways, debris flying", said Orsa, who lives nearby and fears splintering trees will pummel her house. "They pulled out all the furniture out of the yard. They have boarded up a couple of windows". About 10 million people could be affected by the storm and more than 1 million were ordered to evacuate the coasts of the Carolinas and Virginia. Hurricane Florence will slow down as it approaches the coast and moves inland. The report, written mainly by scientists and engineers at state universities, said the warning should guide the state's "policy development and planning purposes" along the coast. A tweet from the NWS said the storm would be "a marathon vs. a sprint" as it hovered over the area dumping heavy rainfall. She adds: "You have wind, high water, rushing water, downed trees and downed power lines - not to mention it's dark out".

Yesterday, Dr Greg Postel, the network's hurricane specialist, said three feet (0.9m) of water was enough to knock people off their feet, potentially carry cars away and flood lower levels of buildings.

"There is still time, but not a lot of time", said Derrec Becker of the South Carolina Department of Emergency Management. Another 400 people were in shelters in Virginia, where forecasts were less dire.

Maryland, too, remains under a state of emergency.
