Why Hurricane Florence Is So Dangerous

Why Hurricane Florence Is So Dangerous

Unfortunately, the forecast is for the storm to stall out and drop a ton of rain in the Carolinas.

Florence is rated a Category 4 on the five-step Saffir-Simpson scale.

Manning adds hundreds of troops are ready to deploy at a moments notice, while the Federal Emergency Management Agency is setting up operations at Fort AP Hill, in Virginia.

Storm surge is basically a wall of water that could swallow parts of the coast.

Drawing energy from the warm water, the now Category 2 storm could be a fearsome Category 4 with winds of 130 miles per hour or more by Tuesday.

Oosterwyk was gathering important papers including tax documents from her store on Monday, and said she planned to drive 240km (150 miles) inland to Cary to ride the storm out.

Other major carriers in the United States, including Delta Air Lines, Southwest Airlines and United Airlines, have similar travel advisories in place, with Southwest even issuing waivers for travelers using airports as far north as Baltimore and Washington D.C.

"These swells are likely to cause life-threatening surf and rip currents", the National Hurricane Center said. So the land can't absorb much more water. This system, when it gets to the coast, is only going to be moving about three miles per hour.

He warned people in surrounding areas to "remain vigilant" and expect flash floods at the start of next week.

The Carolinas will likely bear the brunt of Florence's wrath.

Hurricane Florence is hurtling toward the US East Coast. A lot of people hearing this are remembering Hurricane Hugo in 1989.

The hurricane is poised to make landfall early Thursday somewhere around North and SC, and is likely to strengthen as it approaches.

"They have no idea what "overwash" of an island will do to a home, what the wind could do to your home and what to do to your home to make it safer after you evacuate".

The storm is expected to hit the Carolinas hard later this week.

"We're a resilient bunch down here".

"We do not want to risk one SC life in this hurricane", Governor Henry McMaster said at a news conference. "But this is pretty serious". But one thing it might actually help is to reduce the overall wind speed, though we're still going to have gusty winds around here which combined with that wet soil could bring down some trees.
