According to the U.S. National Hurricane Center (NHC), Florence has 90 mph winds as of 8 a.m. on Sept. 14, making landfall near Wrightsville Beach, North Carolina.
“Catastrophic freshwater flooding expected over portions of North and South Carolina,” according to the NHC, which added that the storm is still producing “life-threatening storm surges and hurricane-force winds.”
The storm is 10 miles south of Wilmington, North Carolina, and 65 miles northeast of Myrtle Beach. The storm is moving slowly at 6 mph to the west.
A storm surge and hurricane warning are in effect for the South Santee River in South Carolina to Duck in North Carolina as well as the Albemarle and Pamlico Sounds, including the Neuse and Pamlico Rivers, according to the NHC.
A tropical storm warning is in effect to north of Duck in North Carolina to Cape Charles Light in Virginia, the Chesapeake Bay south of New Point Comfort, and Edisto Beach in South Carolina to South Santee River in South Carolina.
According to the NHC’s discussion, “The hurricane is turning westward as it continues a slow forward motion … Florence is currently in a region of weak steering currents associated with a col between two mid-level anticyclones.”
It added that “over the next few days, a high pressure area is forecast to build to the east-northeast of the tropical cyclone. As a result, the system should gradually turn northwestward and northward in 2-3 days.”
“Later in the forecast period, Florence should turn northeastward as it approaches the mid-latitude westerlies. The official track forecast is similar to the previous one and about in the middle of the dynamical guidance suite.”
Hurricane Florence cut power to more 500,000 homes and businesses in North Carolina, according to The Weather Channel.
About 150 people were awaiting water rescues in New Bern on the morning of Sept. 14. “Currently ~150 awaiting rescue in New Bern. We have 2 out-of-state FEMA teams here for swift water rescue. More are on the way to help us. WE ARE COMING TO GET YOU. You may need to move up to the second story, or to your attic, but WE ARE COMING TO GET YOU. #FlorenceNC,” the city tweeted at 2 a.m.
More than 60 people had to be pulled from a collapsing motel at the height of the storm, and many more who defied evacuation orders were hoping to be rescued. Pieces of torn-apart buildings flew through the air, according to The Associated Press. Coastal streets flowed with frothy ocean water, and at least 490,000 homes and businesses were without power, mostly in North Carolina, according to poweroutage.us, which tracks the nation’s electrical grid.
Forecasters have also predicted that Florence will dump more than 20 inches of rain in North and South Carolina.
