  • Harvey stalled after moving into Texas as a Category 4 and then took several days to make a final landfall as a tropical storm in Louisiana

The threat has sparked a rush of evacuation efforts in SC and North Carolina, with more than 1 million people urged to get out of Florence's way.

The outer rain bands of Hurricane Florence were beginning to be felt in North Carolina, according to the National Hurricane Center, as the Category 2 storm, with sustained winds of 110 miles per hour and the likelihood of "life-threatening storm surge and rainfall", ranged closer to a landfall. Life-threatening storm surge and rainfall is expected across portions of North and SC.

According to the National Weather Service, Hurricane Florence remains a category 4 storm with maximum sustained winds at 130 miles-per-hour.

"With this storm, what's unique is it's forecast to stall ... dropping copious amounts of rainfall across the Carolinas and into Virginia", Long said.

Forecasters say Florence is now a tropical storm but will continue to threaten North and SC with powerful winds and catastrophic freshwater flooding.

Forecasters have adjusted Hurricane Florence's projected path, saying that after it makes landfall, it is likely to take a more southerly route than expected.
