  • MICAH GREEN  THE SUMTER ITEM

The National Hurricane Center says "a life-threatening storm surge is now likely" along the North and SC coasts as Hurricane Florence approaches the USA eastern seaboard.

"3000 people did not die in the two hurricanes that hit Puerto Rico", Trump said on Twitter.

For some funky underwater footage at the Frying Pan Shoals Light Tower, Explore.org has installed a camera. Forecasters said "catastrophic" freshwater flooding was expected along waterways far from the coast of the Carolinas.

"Don't relax, don't get complacent".

Gov. Henry McMaster issued an executive order on Monday to close public schools in 26 counties, including Sumter, Lee and Clarendon, so facilities and buses could be used for shelters and evacuation transportation.

WILMINGTON, North Carolina - The outer edges of Hurricane Florence began lashing coastal North Carolina with heavy winds and flooding roads on Thursday hours before expected landfall that will bring walls of water and lingering downpours. A storm surge warning is in effect for South Santee River South Carolina to Duck North Carolina.

The storm's intensity diminished as it neared land, with winds dropping to about 90 miles per hour by nightfall.

In South Carolina, officials urged residents to prepare for wind, rain, extended power outages, downed trees and even potential mudslides as the storm hovers over the state and dumps millions of gallons of rainwater, as Hurricane Harvey did in the Houston area past year.

"Just because the wind speed came down, the intensity of this storm came down to a Cat 2, please do not let your guard down", said Brock Long, the administrator of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).

He added that "no doubt" there were some checks at the airport but "the baggage checks weren't probably as good as they might be". Britain has blamed the Russian government of being involved in the attacks, though Moscow has strongly denied it.

Now, many more people and houses are set to endure hurricane-force winds, which extend 80 miles out from Florence's center.

"We immediately gave up our hotel rooms so that more rooms are now available to those coming inland", Hunt said.

At least 280,000 people are already without power as the outskirts of the storm lashed North and SC, and Virginia.

NOAA's latest advisory also reports of a tornado threat as the weather system is approaching land: "A few tornadoes are possible in eastern North Carolina through Friday", the report told.

Almost 2 million coastal residents are now under mandatory evacuation orders, although it remains unclear how many have actually done so. By the time this is all said and done, we could be looking at rainfall amounts across the Charlotte area of 4-8 inches, with localized amounts approaching 10 inches of rain. "We have a safe basement and generator that comes on automatically".

"I like helping people, and I've had people help me so this is my way of giving back", she said.

"Even the rescuers can not stay there", he said. Thousands have taken refuge in emergency shelters, officials said.

Watching the scene unfold from space, German Alexander Gerst, an astronaut on board the ISS, tweeted photos of the enormous storm. "Watch out America", he says. Elsewhere, Tropical Storm Helene is forecast to pass near the Azores on Saturday, and Tropical Storm Isaac is moving west across the eastern Caribbean. Hurricane Helene is veering toward Europe. Those four storms are brewing at the same time Hurricane Olivia is pounding Hawaii.
