Hurricane Florence rolls ashore in Carolinas, tears buildings apart

"The worst of the storm is over", Wright tells TIME.

Government weather satellites captured this image of Hurricane Florence shortly after its landfall September 14, 2018.

With graphics depicting an intersection on a street in the American state of North Carolina, the forecaster explains what is likely to happen as the water engulfs the state's coastline amid sound effects of wind, rain and rushing water.

Yesterday, the European Space Agency released a short video of astronauts aboard the space station watching the storm out of the cupola armed with powerful cameras to capture its giant knot of storm clouds.

Forecasters have been predicting catastrophic flash flooding.

Wright is far from the only resident in the Carolinas that chose to weather Hurricane Florence, which has since been downgraded to a tropical storm, though many who chose to stay are starting to reconsider their decision of sticking around for what North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper called a "1,000-year event".

More than 60 people, including many children and pets, were evacuated from a hotel in Jacksonville, North Carolina, after strong winds caused parts of the roof to collapse, local officials said.

"More people die from storm surge than any proponent of hurricanes", Kottlowsk tells TIME. He said he had trimmed his own trees before the storm.

"WE ARE COMING TO GET YOU", a tweet from the city overnight said.

"WE ARE COMING TO GET YOU", New Bern city officials said on Twitter.

Heavy rain, wind gusts and rising floodwater from Florence swamped the Carolinas as the massive storm crawled toward the coast, threatening millions of people in its path with record rainfall and punishing surf.

Its top sustained winds have dropped to 70 miles per hour (110 kph), and it's at a near standstill, moving west at just 3 miles per hour (6 kph).

Florence made landfall as a Category 1 hurricane at 7:15 a.m.at Wrightsville Beach, a few miles east of Wilmington, not far from the SC line, coming ashore along a mostly boarded-up, emptied-out stretch of coastline.

"Inland flooding kills a lot of people unfortunately and that's what we're about to see". Authorities warned, too, of the threat of mudslides and the risk of environmental havoc from floodwaters washing over industrial waste sites and hog farms. Hurricane-force winds extended 90 miles (150 kilometers) from its center, and tropical-storm-force winds up to 195 miles (315 kilometers).

"We've got nearly 20,000 people in 157 shelters", Cooper said.

More than 12,000 people were in shelters in North Carolina and 400 in Virginia, where the forecast was less dire.

It is expected to move across parts of south-eastern North Carolina and eastern SC on Friday and Saturday, then head north over the western Carolinas and central Appalachian Mountains early next week, the NHC said.
