ISS images show massive Hurricane Florence from 400 km up

Hurricane Florence is expected to grow in intensity

"It's cumulative damage", Myers said.

In the tiny community of Sea Breeze near Wilmington, Roslyn Fleming, 56, made a video of the inlet where her granddaughter was baptized because "I just don't think a lot of this is going to be here" later. So will the trees. As the storm moves inland it will find a relatively flat area for hundreds of miles.

Hurricane Florence's sustained wind speeds have lessened slightly to 105 miles per hour, but the storm is already bringing surges and tropical storm winds to the North Carolina shore, the National Hurricane Center said in an 11 a.m. briefing. The actual landfall - when the center of the eye reaches land - will be Friday afternoon at the earliest, said Neil Jacobs of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

"The larger and slower the storm is, the greater the threat and impact, and we have that here", NHC Director Ken Graham said on Thursday.

Rainfall will accumulate near 2 feet in North Carolina. She said a hurricane has a way of bringing everyone to the same level.

Gillikin says the North Carolina Coastal Reserve stands ready to respond with whatever resources they can to help any animal suffering after the storm. Shelters in the city were filling and some people were being bused inland to Raleigh, even though some residents there were told they might have to evacuate because of flooding.

"Since my husband retired and my health declined, we have his retirement as an income".

"The vast majority of the time the horses know what to do, and they are able to get to higher ground or protect themselves", said Gillikin. "So since we can find anything within our means, ... we've opted to stay".

More than 1 million people have been ordered to evacuate the coastlines of the Carolinas and Virginia. "Your time is running out".

"It can still kill you". It is expected to stall and hover over the Carolinas, dumping enormous amounts of rainfall on the region, and causing massive destruction and flooding. "While that rain is still coming down for a couple of days, one to two days later you're going to have stuff coming from North Carolina and things coming in from the Upstate". The more it hovers just off shore, the more potentially deadly storm surge it could push on-shore.

SC officials say more than 400,000 people have evacuated the state's coast and more than 4,000 people have taken refuge in shelters as Hurricane Florence approaches. Spokesman Howard Fowler said restoration could take "weeks instead of days", even though 20,000 workers, including crews from outside the area, were standing by.

Officials in several states have declared states of emergency, including in the Carolinas, Georgia, Virginia and Maryland, where coastal areas are still recovering from summer storms.

Hurricane Florence is seen from the International Space Station as it churns in the Atlantic Ocean towards the east coast of the United States, September 10, 2018.
