Hurricane Florence: Carolinas brace for 'storm of lifetime'

Hurricane Florence: Carolinas brace for 'storm of lifetime'

The company said as many as three-fourths of its 4 million customers in North Carolina and SC could lose power.

That's because the area covered by hurricane-force winds recently doubled - meaning far more people will get blasted with winds topping 73 miles per hour.

Some 11,000 power outages have been reported in North Carolina.

"Either no (hotel) rooms are available, or we are denied because the breed or size of dogs", she said.

But North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper warned: "Don't relax, don't get complacent". They've also been praying, singing songs in their native language. "We have a safe basement and generator that comes on automatically".

"One minute we're at a high state of alert, the next we're at a low state, but we can adapt to the situation", said Capt. Eric Abdullah, of the Aiken County Sheriff's Office, who said officials were trying to stay flexible.

Panovich: Pretty much everybody from Charlotte east is going to see heavy rain.

Even the thousands of emergency workers on scene - ranging from power workers to National Guardsmen to cops, many of them volunteers from across the country - could only sit and wait for Florence to do its worst before they could do their best. "Inland flooding kills a lot of people unfortunately and that's what we're about to see".

In Shallotte, N.C., a coastal town near the border with SC, emergency orders forced a Waffle House to shut down - an act that was widely seen as a sign of respect for Florence's imposing size and strength. Most of the damage during Hurricane Matthew in 2016 in North Carolina came from inland flooding - 31 people died and almost 100,000 homes were destroyed.

Kevin De Bruyne release clause is a proper release clause
De Bruyne has attracted interest from Real Madrid and Barcelona in the past. "He's an incredible boy". "The clause is €250m". He now has a couple of months on the sidelines and City will be better for his return, which is always a scary prospect.

The mayor of Carolina Beach, North Carolina, said authorities have stopped allowing traffic to the island via the only bridge between the island and the mainland.

But with the game canceled, Colgate said it will provide those rooms and meals to those displaced by the storm. As the recovery from past storms continues in many rural towns, the next storm is about to strike.

"We are in constant contact with moms who are close to delivery dates, before the storm, and we advise them to maybe leave the county, because there is a time. that they won't be able to travel during the storm", he tells McCammon.

"Even the rescuers can not stay there", he said.

Memorial University Medical Center received nine patients from other HCA facilities in SC and eight from Coastal Carolina Hospital in Hardeeville, Memorial spokesman Dale Hooks wrote in an email.

Watching the scene unfold from space, German Alexander Gerst, an astronaut on board the ISS, tweeted photos of the enormous storm. "Watch out America", he says. "But even worse than that is coming back in because you don't know what you're coming back to".

Despite reassurances from FEMA and Trump, Florence's fluctuations and course-change predictions have added to the difficulties of preparing for such a massive storm. Elsewhere, Tropical Storm Helene is forecast to pass near the Azores on Saturday, and Tropical Storm Isaac is moving west across the eastern Caribbean. Hurricane Helene is veering toward Europe.

Subtropical storm Joyce struggles to hold together in the norther Atlantic. Those four storms are brewing at the same time Hurricane Olivia is pounding Hawaii.
