In the past century, only seven major hurricanes have hit the SC and North Carolina coasts.

"This possibility could bring prolonged hurricane-force winds and storm surge throughout Saturday and Sunday, to coastal areas along North and SC, and significant inland flooding to whole region", RMS said.

Oddly, the closer Hurricane Florence gets to land, the murkier its future gets. In fact, the NHC noted that the wind field of the storm has increased in size. Cloud cover that could encompass multiple states.

The latest forecast models for Hurricane Florence indicate it is now likely to dump rain on parts of NY and CT early next week.

Anxious about how the government will respond to Hurricane Florence's devastation? Storm surge is why many of you have been placed under evacuation and we are asking citizens to please heed a warning.

And if Florence weren't enough, other storms out there are threatening people. The more the Great Lakes one wins, the more southerly Florence will be. Hundreds of thousands of people have already evacuated. "I should stay in my house, where I have water and food". Millions of people are expected to lose power and it could take weeks to resolve the outages. The losses won't be easily or quickly overcome. And 15 counties in North Carolina were under a tornado watch by Thursday morning, including: Beaufort, Carteret, Craven, Dare, Duplin, Greene, Hyde, Jones, Lenoir, Martin, Onslow, Pamlico, Pitt, Tyrrell and Washington Counties. There are now fewer tourists to send away.

Salvo, NC to North Carolina/Virginia Border: 2-4′.

Florence's maximum sustained winds were clocked on Thursday at 105 miles per hour (165 kph) after it was downgraded to a Category 2 on the five-step Saffir-Simpson scale, according to the NHC. Evacuation orders are in place in the Carolinas and Virginia, and Georgia is in a state of emergency.

Roy Cooper warned residents to not let their guard down ahead of Hurricane Florence's landfall later this week. He says: "If Mama and Grandma are going, then a lot of people are leaving".

About 10 million people could be affected by the storm. One North Carolina woman packed flowers to leave on her son's grave. Home Depot and Lowe's activated emergency response centres to get generators, trash bags and bottled water to stores before and after the storm.

Aside from safety concerns, Atlantic Coast Conference schools face scheduling obstacles, monetary implications and bowl considerations. A turn to the west-northwest and west at an even slower forward speed is expected tonight and Friday, and a slow west-southwestward motion is forecast Friday night and Saturday. Presbyterian has cancelled its football game with Stetson on Saturday. Virginia has moved its Saturday home game against OH to Nashville, Tennessee.
