Hurricane Florence from space

According to the National Hurricane Center, the maximum sustained winds have decreased to near 105 miles per hour with higher gusts.

North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia and Maryland have all declared a state of emergency and told residents to prepare for flooding and power outages.

The first effects were already being seen on barrier islands as risky rip currents hit beaches and seawater flowed over a state highway.

Hurricane Florence as seen from the International Space Station on Monday, Sept. 10, 2018. "When you stall a system like this and it moves real slow, some of that rainfall can extend well away from the centre".

A warm ocean is the fuel that powers hurricanes, and Florence will be moving over waters where temperatures are peaking near 85 degrees (30 Celsius), he wrote.

A Category 5 storm means it has sustained winds of 157 miles per hour or more.

Samsung will hold another Galaxy event on 11th October
There have been rumours in recent times of a forthcoming Samsung Galaxy A9, which is said to have a four cameras on the rear. Now that the choice has been narrowed down to the Korean manufacturer, it is hard to guess which Galaxy phone it would be.

By noon EDT Monday, Florence was centered about 1,230 miles east-southeast of Cape Fear, North Carolina, and moving west at 13 mph.

The National Hurricane Center is offering that warning on Tuesday morning as hurricane watches and storm surge watches were issued for the coasts of North Carolina and SC for the first time. Forecasters also were tracking two other disturbances.

Information gathered Tuesday by a hurricane-hunting aircraft suggests it will intensify again as it nears the coast, approaching the 253 kmh threshold for a worst-case Category 5 scenario.

The National Hurricane Center's best guess was that Florence would blow ashore as early as Friday afternoon around the North Carolina-South Carolina line, then push its rainy way westward with a potential for catastrophic inland flooding.

Evacuations were happening along the coast of North and South Carolina, and the projected landfall was expected between Charleston, South Carolina, and Norfolk, Virginia. North Carolina seems to be the state that could bear the brunt of the winds, along with SC and parts of southern Virginia.

Hurricane Florence is now a Category 4 storm and is "rapidly strengthening" as it heads toward the Carolinas coast, bringing "exceptionally heavy rain", the National Hurricane Center said Monday.

In the Pacific, Olivia became a tropical storm again, on a path to hit the Hawaiian islands early Wednesday.

The safety of everyone affected by the storm and the minimization of the impact on emergency personnel are the most important factors in making the decision on hosting an athletics event.

"We're in constant communication with our transportation people for contingencies", Hamrick said.

"I'm telling them to go inland, but I'm anxious about the rain and tornadoes too", Roberts said. "We know we can't play around with this", said Jennifer Oosterwyk, who owns the Sugar Britches boutique on Holden Beach and lives in nearby Wilmington. That game potentially stands to be more directly impacted by the path of Hurricane Florence. "There is no way to be completely safe", but going inland might not be much safer.

Still mostly centered in the landing area were Wilmington and Myrtle Beach, where the SC governor told everyone to leave starting at noon on Tuesday.

There are mandatory evacuations set for Virginia, too, where Gov. Ralph Northam has ordered about 245,000 people in flood-prone coastal areas to get out beginning at 8 a.m. Tuesday.
