The Miami-based center says the center of the eye moved ashore with top sustained winds of 90 miles per hour (150 kph), making Florence a Category 1 hurricane in terms of wind intensity.

Florence was 155 miles (250km) east of Myrtle Beach in SC at 17:00 EDT (21:00 GMT), and is projected to make landfall on Friday at 08:00 local time.

She said the momentum the storm has generated on its long trip across the Atlantic won't go away just "because the winds decrease a couple miles an hour".

One of the more alarming posts, however, includes a new graphic from The Weather Channel that imagines what the storm surge, now projected to reach up to 13 feet in some places, will look like.

Florence is widely seen as a test for the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), whose capabilities were stretched thin past year as it responded to three major hurricanes.

Mayor Joe Benson said the storm will batter Carolina Beach through two high-tide periods. Bev Perdue, a Democrat-in 2012, after the state's Coastal Resource Commission published a 2010 report (pdf) predicting that seawater could rise 39 inches along the coast by 2100, and lawmakers, coastal landowners, and members of the real-estate industry responded with alarm over pricey waterfront property that faces billions of dollars in damage. "And by that I mean the teams and families but also the allotment of resources used for the game that could be better used somewhere else".

"I'm not leaving my child", Foster said.

If you do not have to be out during or after the storm, stay inside, he said.

Luettich and colleagues at the University of Notre Dame and University of Texas spent 30 years developing ADCRIC, a computer model that gauges storm surge and other impacts of major coastal weather events.

North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper warned residents not to "underestimate" the storm.

The wave action and strong winds of Florence will cause a large amount of water to pile up along the coast of North and SC.

As Florence drew near, President Donald Trump tweeted that FEMA and first responders are "supplied and ready", and he disputed the official conclusion that almost 3,000 people died in Puerto Rico, claiming the figure was a Democratic plot to make him look bad.

More than 1 million people have been ordered to evacuate - but the window to do so is nearly over.

Memorial University Medical Center received nine patients from other HCA facilities in SC and eight from Coastal Carolina Hospital in Hardeeville, Memorial spokesman Dale Hooks wrote in an email.

Despite reassurances from FEMA and Trump, Florence's fluctuations and course-change predictions have added to the difficulties of preparing for such a massive storm.
