Hurricane Florence projected path: How to track Hurricane Florence

  • 11am2 Hurricane Florence May Stall Off Wilmington North Carolina

On the forecast track, the center of Florence will move over the southwestern Atlantic Ocean between Bermuda and the Bahamas today, and approach the coast of North Carolina or SC in the hurricane warning area on Thursday and Friday and move slowly near the coastline through Saturday. Life-threatening, catastrophic flash flooding and river flooding is likely.

The governors of Virginia, Maryland, North Carolina and SC have also declared a state of emergency for their states in preparation for Florence's arrival. As of now, Florence is due to make landfall very early Friday morning, somewhere in the Carolinas.

As Hurricane Florence continues to move toward the northwest at 15 miles per hour, we will see an increase in wind speed and rain chances starting Thursday morning.

"Forecasts generally project the storm to make landfall between northern SC and North Carolina's Outer Banks as a strong Category 3 on Thursday, although shifts in the track are possible and storm impacts will expand great distances beyond where landfall occurs". Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 70 miles from the center and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 175miles.

Hurricane Florence pushes its way towards the Carolinas coast.

The path of Hurricane Florence could affect the homes of more than 5 million people, and more than 1 million of them have been ordered to evacuate.

Right now the storm does not have a lot of speed behind it, so the rainfall will likely be extensive along the coastal areas, with historic flooding predicted there.

The National Weather Service is forecasting heavy rainfall Sunday through Tuesday across central SC with flooding potential in the Upstate, northeast Georgia and the mountains of western North Carolina.

Petrol touches Rs 90.11 in Maharashtra's Parbhani
In Chennai, petrol costs Rs 84.05 and diesel Rs 77.13. "Fuel prices have disturbed the budget of every household". It is clear that the prime reason why petrol and diesel are expensive is because of the central and state taxes.

Florence is expected to start bringing tropical storm force winds to the Carolinas late Thursday.

And it led to mixed signals from officials in SC, whose governor had canceled mandatory evacuation for several coastal counties.

For anyone needing a place to stay to escape the hurricane, both North Carolina and SC are updating their lists of emergency shelters.

The NHC said Helene was weakening, however, and posed no danger to land.

It will also pass directly over two nuclear power plants - the Brunswick Nuclear Plant, which is located 30 miles south of Wilmington, as well as the Shearon Harris Nuclear Plant in New Hill, about 23 miles from Raleigh. "We just need to keep getting the most accurate and recent data we can for the models and forecasters".

To back up that point, Graham cited a sobering statistic: "50 percent of the fatalities in these tropical systems is the storm surge - and that's not just along the coast".

"But despite that, bad things can happen when you are talking about a storm this size", he added. Jeff Byard of the Federal Emergency Management Agency invoked a former boxing champion to warn residents that it would bring "a Mike Tyson punch to the Carolina coast".
