Florence path shifts, could impact Middle Georgia late this weekend

"Everybody is talking about it", said Hrynyshyn, adding the local gas station ran out of fuel earlier in the day and the local electricity utility has dispatched work crews to the coast.

Forecasts showed the storm lingering near the coast of the Carolinas, carrying days of heavy rains that could bring intense inland flooding from SC to Virginia. Forecasts predict as much as 20 inches of rain in some places but one computer model warned there could be up to 45 inches, almost four feet.

The winds cover an area more than 53,000 square miles - which is larger than the entire state of North Carolina.

"Life-threatening freshwater flooding is likely from a prolonged and exceptionally heavy rainfall event, which may extend inland over the Carolinas and mid-Atlantic for hundreds of miles as Florence is expected to slow down as it approaches the coast and moves inland", the NHC warned.

"This rainfall would produce catastrophic flash flooding and significant river flooding", the WPC tweet said.

"This storm is big, and it's vicious", Cooper (D) said.

Hurricane warnings have been issued by the U.S. National Hurricane Center (NHC) for portions of SC and North Carolina due to Hurricane Florence, according to the agency's 5 p.m. update on September 11.

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.

"It is an extremely risky, life-threatening, historic hurricane". "The waves and wind this storm may bring is nothing like you've ever seen".

The alerts also mean risky storm surges are likely along the coast and heavy, sustained rains could cause life-threatening flooding inland, the National Hurricane Center warned. He underlined the point that even if you call 911, there is a chance rescue services may not be able to get to you.

In a videotaped message from the White House, President Donald Trump said the government is fully prepared for Florence but urged people to "get out of its way".
