SC won’t evacuate prison for Hurricane Florence

SC won’t evacuate prison for Hurricane Florence

Ocean City emergency management officials are continuing to monitor Hurricane Florence, which is now showing a southern track and steering farther away from the Maryland coastline.

The storms path is promising to bring even more devastation than first predicted to the Carolinas and parts of Georgia.

If these projections hold, University of Miami hurricane researcher Brian McNoldy says "it's exceptionally bad news, as it smears a landfall out over hundreds of miles of coastline, most notably the storm surge".

"We're on the wrong side of the storm, where most of the damage is done", Cooper said.

"The time to prepare is nearly over", North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper told a morning news conference.

The storm could cause a life-threatening storm surge, essentially walls of water, ahead of landfall which is why FEMA warns that Wednesday is the last feasible day to evacuate areas vulnerable to the storm. He said the government is prepared for the storm.

"Marshall Athletics Director Mike Hamrick and I have been in constant contact throughout the week about the game", Tanner said.

"Currently there is nothing projected to slow the storm down, to weaken the storm, we ARE planning for a hard impact of the Category 4 storm, somewhere on the coast of North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia".

North Carolina residents rushed to stack up on food, water, toilet paper and other necessities as "monster" Hurricane Florence is set to touchdown in the state early this weekend. "Now it might be time for the exam", he said.

"Disaster is at the doorstep and it's coming in."

Winds of 40 miles per hour or greater will advance onshore in eastern North Carolina during the day on Thursday.

According to CNN, more than 1 million people have been told to evacuate coastal areas of North Carolina, South Carolina, and Virginia.

People getting a little more than moist over it'.

"I'm not approaching Florence from fear or panic", said Brad Corpening, 35, who planned to ride out the storm in his boarded-up delicatessen in Wilmington. "Also, most storms coming into the Carolinas tend to move northward, and this storm looks like it's going to stall over the region and potentially bring tremendous, life-threatening flooding", AccuWeather meteorologist Marshall Moss said on September 11.

DOT crews and the State Highway Patrol were quickly clearing accidents, stranded drivers and abandoned vehicles off major highways near the coast so they don't hinder the evacuation effort. Authorities in Chatham County, Georgia, which borders SC and includes the historic port city of Savannah, urged residents who feel unsafe "to evacuate as they see fit".

Florence is being trailed in the Atlantic by two other storms - Hurricane Helene and Tropical Storm Isaac.
