Stare Down from Space into the Churning Maw of Hurricane Florence

You may have heard about Hurricane Florence, the storm careering towards the usa east coast prompting warnings of an impending disaster.

North Carolina corrections officials said more than 3,000 people were relocated from adult prisons and juvenile centres in the path of Florence, and more than 300 county prisoners were transferred to state facilities.

At least 88,000 people were without power in North Carolina with the brunt of the storm yet to come, according to the state's emergency management agency.

The images, captured from249 miles above the storm, captured Florence as it draws close to North Carolina's coast. The Category 1 storm has maximum sustained winds of 90 miles per hour and is moving slowly, at 6 miles per hour.

The hurricane's sheer size means it could batter the U.S. East Coast with hurricane-force winds for almost a full day, according to weather forecasters.

Roads and intersections on North Carolina's Outer Banks barrier islands were inundated.

It is the storm's movement and not its strength that has forecasters and officials anxious. Florence is expected to arrive in southeast North Carolina on Friday morning before drifting south into SC.

Another Wilmington resident said she does not want to leave because she is afraid to see what she would be coming back to.

"Some say North Carolina is getting a break, but we are on the wrong side of this story", he said. The damage from the storm is also cumulative over time, as it slowly moves inland, damaging homes and buildings, blowing trees over, and knocking down power lines.

"Sometimes these systems, they expand", she said. "I've got four cats inside the house".

"But it could have a positive effect on eastern parts because it could also bring tropical air".

Tens of thousands are without power in North Carolina.

FEMA's Long warned the danger was not only along the coast: "Inland flooding kills a lot of people, unfortunately, and that's what we're about to see", he said.

"Since my husband retired and my health declined, we have his retirement as an income".

More than one million people had been ordered to evacuate the coasts of North and SC and Virginia and thousands moved to emergency shelters, officials said.

Evacuation orders are in place for more than a million people.

Another live stream at Wilmington Tower, which usually broadcasts sweeping views of the North Carolina landscape, shows storm clouds rolling in over the ocean.

In Wilmington, residents who had decided not to evacuate were lining up to get ice from a vending machine - $2 for a 16-pound (7.2-kilo) bag.

It said the additional declaration would bring more federal help with debris removal, search and rescue teams, meals and generators, among other items.
