NASA footage reveals the 'menacing' Hurricane Florence

Hurricane Florence still poses grave threat despite weaker winds

And even from space, Hurricane Florence looks terrifying. The storm is expected to turn west and then north moving through the Carolinas and the Ohio Valley by Monday, the NHC said early on Saturday. "Disaster is at the doorstep and it's coming in".

With Hurricane Florence bearing down on the East Coast, is it time for a radical rethink on what it means to be prepared?

"I do worry though about people here because many didn't prepare, you know, because originally they didn't think it was going to be so bad here", Sparks said.

While some of the computer forecasting models conflicted, the latest projections more or less showed the storm shifting southward and westward in a way that suddenly put more of SC in danger and imperiled Georgia, too.

The ocean waters that Florence is travelling over are about 2.7 degrees (1.5 degrees Celsius) warmer than normal, McNoldy said.

The images, captured from249 miles above the storm, captured Florence as it draws close to North Carolina's coast.

It's estimated that 1 million people will be impacted by Florence's arrival. Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal followed suit on Wednesday.

The latest forecasts show the storm lingering near the coast and bringing intense inland flooding from SC, where some areas could see as much as 40 inches (1m) of rain, to Virginia. Tropical Storm Olivia is approaching the Hawaiian islands, the Philippines are bracing for the powerful typhoon Mangkhut, and Tropical Storm Isaac is nearing the Leeward Islands. Workers are being brought in from the Midwest and Florida to help in the storm's aftermath, it said.

Meanwhile, some of North Carolina's 2,100 industrial-size hog farmers are scrambling to drain waste pools containing manure before the hurricane hits, according to NPR.




One North Carolina county has already issued a mandatory evacuation order, and locals throughout the region have cleared supermarket shelves of bottled water.

A tropical storm watch is in effect for north of the North Carolina/Virginia border to Cape Charles Light, VA, and for Chesapeake Bay south of New Point Comfort. He adds, "Businesses in Myrtle Beach are to have operations ceased and secured by 5 this afternoon". Thinking of the outages likely to come, it also warns to use grills and generators outside - away from doors and windows.

Florence is now heading for ocean water that has surface temperatures of about 85 degrees, meaning it will most likely strengthen on its way to the East Coast.

Tropical storm-force winds extended 195 miles (315 kilometers) from Florence's center, and hurricane-force winds reached out 70 miles (110 kilometers).

The NHC said Helene was weakening, however, and posed no danger to land.

Florence was one of two major storms threatening millions of people on opposite sides of the world.

Florence was a Category 3 hurricane on the five-step Saffir-Simpson scale with 120-mph winds on Thursday.

The slow movement, combined with the massive amount of moisture this storm holds, will bring risky rains - from 20 to 30 inches in coastal North Carolina and 40 inches possible in isolated areas, the weather service says.
