Hurricane Florence path is increasingly likely to impact the southeastern and mid-Atlantic United States — potentially thrashing coastal areas stretching from South Carolina to northern Virginia with punishing winds, heavy rain, and life-threatening storm surge.
Currently, Florence is sustaining 130 mph winds, making it a Category 4 storm. But forecasters warn that it may continue to intensify as it approaches the coast, possibly even making landfall Thursday or Friday in North Carolina as a powerful Category 4 storm, with 150 mph winds.
“Florence is forecast to be a very powerful major hurricane on its approach to the southeastern United States,” the National Hurricane Center warned Monday. “All interests from South Carolina into the mid-Atlantic region should ensure they have their hurricane plan in place and follow any advice given by local officials.”
