  • Hurricane Florence from space

Florence is also expected to lose speed and "hover" once it reaches the coast, which will intensify the impacts of its heavy rainfall and storm surges, Ken Graham, director of the National Hurricane Center (NHC), said in a Facebook Live update earlier today.

North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper said, 'The time to prepare is nearly over.

The hurricane is moving slower toward the northwest at about 20 kph.

"Ever stared down the gaping eye of a category 4 hurricane?" Significant weakening is expected over the weekend. Now a major hurricane with winds of 115 miles an hour and increasing, the National Hurricane Center says Florence's forecast track will take the system over the southwestern Atlantic Ocean between Bermuda and the Bahamas Tuesday and Wednesday, and Florence will approach the coast of SC or North Carolina on Thursday.
