Florence barreling closer to coast of Carolinas

Florence barreling closer to coast of Carolinas

"In general, we're expecting see somewhere between 5-10" of rain from Florence. "It's called Mother Nature, you never know, but we know", he also said in a video posted to Twitter Wednesday morning.

The National Hurricane Center's latest predictions Wednesday had Florence hovering off Southeast shores for more than two days before making landfall near the North Carolina/South Carolina border, perhaps not until Saturday.

"Whether or not the game could have been played, we made the decision we think is best for the state and those who are evacuating the coast", athletics director Ray Tanner said in a statement released by the school. As the storm moves inland, Georgia, Virginia and Maryland will also be in peril. The order eases regulations on trucks hauling gasoline and relief supplies into Georgia.

Hoffman, along with Billy Sample and Sample's wife, say they've got homes to keep an eye on and pets to worry about.

Timing: When Will Hurricane Florence Strike?

In Virginia, where about 245,000 residents were ordered to evacuate low-lying areas, officials urged people to remain away from home despite forecast changes showing Florence's path largely missing the state.

As of Tuesday, about 1.7 million people in North and SC and Virginia were under warnings to evacuate the coast, and hurricane watches and warnings extended across an area with about 5.4 million residents.

"I'm taking a life-threatening risk, but it's my opportunity to protect my property", Hoffman said.

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

Florence exploded into a potentially catastrophic hurricane Monday as it closed in on North and SC, carrying winds up to 140 miles per hour (220 kph) and water that could wreak havoc over a wide stretch of the eastern United States later this week.

Mr McMaster said: "Even responders can not stay there". It could stall just off the coast and then drift south along the SC coast and possibly make a landfall as a weaker system if it doesn't make it clearly over the coast of North Carolina.

"I've been through hurricanes before but never with kids", she said.

LATER NEXT WEEK: The remnants of Hurricane Florence could bring some heavy rain to the D.C. region by next week.
