How Hurricane Florence Will Affect Your Flights This Week

How Hurricane Florence Will Affect Your Flights This Week

Florence is so wide that a life-threatening storm surge was being pushed 300 miles ahead of its eye, swirling clouds that could deluge states from SC to OH and Pennsylvania as it slows and then stalls over land.

The U.S. military faces a dual mission this week: help some of the millions of civilians in the path of Hurricane Florence and brace for what could be a devastating blow at bases on the East Coast.

Winds and massive waves will pound coastal North and SC when Florence makes landfall on Friday, and its rains will take a heavy toll for miles inland, the National Hurricane Center (NHC) warned. The watch "means there is a possibility of life-threatening inundation, from rising water moving inland from the coastline, in the indicated locations during the next 48 hours", the Hurricane Center said. In the six decades since then, many thousands of people have moved to the coast.

More than 1.5 million people living along the coastlines of North Carolina and SC were ordered to evacuate as the National Hurricane Centre warned of a "large and extremely dangerous" storm that posed a threat to life.

Since we're more than two days away and surge is very localised, we don't yet have specific forecasts from the National Hurricane Center. North Carolina has been hit by only one other Category 4 storm since reliable record keeping began in the 1850s.

"This is one of the worst storms to hit the East Coast in many years", Trump warned on Twitter. "Don't bet your life on riding out a monster".

In addition to having Guardsmen in place before the arrival of Hurricane Florence, Soldiers are also being positioned throughout the state to handle recovery scenarios, like road clearing with engineering equipment and resources to assist citizens in returning to their homes once the hurricane has passed and the area is determined to be safe.

To hasten evacuations from coastal SC, officials reversed the flow of traffic on some highways so all major roads led away from shore. She grew up on the island chain, and says this will be only the second time she's evacuated.

On the right side of this view is Helene, a Category 2 hurricane that will likely peter out in the Atlantic without making landfall, according to the latest update from the National Hurricane Center (NHC), a division of NOAA.

This could add another metre or more of surge, which is forecast to be as high as four metres in some parts of North Carolina.

"The biggest hazard that we are anxious about is storm surge", he said.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency said Florence would cause massive damage.

Flash flooding and river flooding is also expected in these regions.

Florence's tropical storm-force winds extend 275 kilometres from the storm's centre, but its hurricane-force winds extend 95 kilometres from its centre.

Laws to combat price gouging are reportedly already in effect in North Carolina and SC, while motorists on the East Coast can expect to see gas prices spike this week due to Florence, according to AAA.
