How wide is Hurricane Florence?

The category 4 hurricane is currently moving to the west at 13 mph and is expected to begin a turn to the northwest by late Wednesday

"As we have seen with hurricanes in most recent years, such as Lane in Hawaii earlier this summer and Harvey last year in Texas, feet of rain can fall when these tropical storms stall", AccuWeather's Alex Sosnowski said. Matthew's floods were devastating for many areas of eastern North Carolina.

Long cautioned coastal residents via Twitter of storm surges up to 12ft - "rapid rise of water that is overwhelming and deadly".

"It's an extremely unsafe, life-threatening, historic hurricane. the forecast shows Florence stalling over North Carolina, bringing days and days of rain".

South Carolina's Governor Henry McMaster gave the entire coastline of his state until noon on Tuesday to leave. This pattern will lead to catastrophic conditions in South and North Carolina as well as Virginia.

He said the agency has implemented changes since 2017, improving their partnerships with the private sector, in particular fuel, transportation and electrical companies, to better meet needs on the ground after a disaster. Many parts of the Appalachians have been saturated with rain over recent weeks, adding to concerns for flash flooding and mudslides inland.

Predicting hurricane tracks is a hard science, and the NHC said there are still uncertainties about the storm's track.

The storm was moving toward the west-northwest at about 9 miles per hour and was about 625 miles (1,005 kilometers) southeast of Bermuda. Seven other UNC athletic events are also canceled or postponed because of Hurricane Florence. The cone expands as Florence is forecast to make landfall late Thursday night into Friday morning along the coastal Carolina's.

"The forecast places North Carolina in the bull's-eye of Hurricane Florence, and the storm is rapidly getting stronger", he said. "2017 was 2017. I want to reiterate that we are looking at a risky storm now, we have citizens that will be in need, and I want to use this opportunity to get this voice out to those citizens that are an evacuation areas to please heed the evacuation".

Mac Miller, Pittsburgh Rapper And Producer, Reportedly Dead At 26
TMZ is reporting it was a drug overdose and that the rapper was found in a bedroom at his San Fernando Valley home. At the time of this writing, no further details about Miller's death have been released to the public.

By way of comparison, the maximum intensity of Hurricane Maria, the storm system which path of destruction left nearly 3,000 people dead in Puerto Rico, was 277.8 km/h, (150 knots), the NHC said. Oblivious to those critiques, Trump called the response to Maria "an incredible, unsung success" on Tuesday.

Trump tweeted to residents in the storm's path urging them to "please take all necessary precautions".

With winds now at 140 miles per hour (225 km per hour), the storm was a Category 4 on the five-step Saffir-Simpson scale and expected to get bigger and stronger, the NHC said. In the six decades since then, many thousands of people have moved to the coast.

Meanwhile, games affecting Major League Baseball pennant races likely will be impacted by Florence.

"It's not just the coast", Mr Graham said.

Two other storms were spinning in the Atlantic.

Florence is a Category 4 hurricane with maximum sustained winds of 220 kilometers per hour and forecasters think it will gain more strength Tuesday or Wednesday.
