  • Hurricane Isaac has seriously weakened recently due to the wind shear in the Atlantic

"We want to make sure people understand that people should not ride Hurricane Florence out".

Business owners prepare for Hurricane Florence in Wrightsville Beach, N.C.

The campaign said the event was scuttled out of safety concerns.

And the storm surge, which could be as much as 12 feet in some areas, will be on top of sea level rise from climate change. "Some neighbors started defoliating a little bit of cotton last week, but most are waiting until after the storm passes". Its crops include corn, soy and cotton, making agriculture the state's No. 1 industry, valued at $87 billion. "I probably would have looked at digging right at about the time the storm is supposed to hit. Everybody in the area has been busy trying to get corn in and just about everyone is finished up that".

The ocean waters that Florence is travelling over are about 2.7 degrees (1.5 degrees Celsius) warmer than normal, McNoldy said. In 2016, the state gave the company until August 1, 2019, to dig up and close some coal-ash pits and nearly a decade more to deal with others. Other counties are evacuating low lying and flood prone areas.

East Carolina's announcement also noted the Greenville campus' history with serious flooding issues from Hurricane Floyd in 1999 and Hurricane Matthew in 2016. We are back at it again.

Most manure pits could handle up to 25 inches of rain, Curliss said. "We've been very dry with hardly any rain in August".

Hurricane Florence churned Tuesday toward an Eastern Seaboard landfall as a million people were ordered to leave the coast and millions more prepared for what could be one of the most catastrophic hurricanes to hit the region in decades.

A flawless storm of unfortunate circumstances means Florence could deal a devastating blow to the Southeast.

It's unclear when the UCF-North Carolina and West Virginia-North Carolina State games could be rescheduled after Hurricane Florence, if at all.

‘Extremely dangerous’ Hurricane Florence is now packing winds of 220 km/h
If Florence weakens enough to arrive as a Category 3 storm, it would likely be near the upper limit of that classification. Henry McMaster ordered a mandatory evacuation of most of the state's coast beginning at noon on Tuesday.

The Atlantic reports, "Since records began, only 10 major hurricanes have made landfall around the Carolinas".

The massive hurricane is closing in on the Carolinas and Virginia and could cause disastrous weather as far as Pennsylvania and Ohio.

Even by major hurricane standards, Florence is a beast like no other.

Hurricane Florence continues to grow in size and magnitude as it barrels toward the U.S. East Coast. "Evacuees should verify that the facilities to which they are evacuating also are waiving requirements before arriving at those facilities".

The European Model projects that Florence will track a bit further south, bringing more severe weather to SC.

The storm is forecast to make landfall in the Carolinas as a strong Category 3 sometime late Thursday or early Friday.

The game between North Carolina Central and South Carolina State set for Saturday has been postponed until November 24. SC is also seeing a mass exodus, after the state's governor ordered a mandatory evacuation of the coastal counties. Highways will be converted to one-way evacuation routes away from the evacuation zones.

There are now 28 shelters available that can help 25,000 evacuees - with more expected to be open through the storm. It's enough to cover Manhattan with almost 3,800 feet (1.1 kilometers) of water, more than twice as high as the island's tallest building.

According to AAA, the storm "will likely have an impact on East Coast gas prices this week should the storm follow its projected path".
