MYRTLE BEACH, S. C. – Time is too short to get out of the way of Hurricane Florence, a monster of a storm that has an area of more than 10 million people in the potentially devastating sights.
Forecasters say wind speeds have dropped from a height of 140 mph (225 km / h 110 km / h (175 km / h), making it a Category 2 storm. But the authorities warn Florence has a huge wind field as it zeroes in on the Southeastern U.S. coast, increase the risk of the ocean surging up to the country and the make of Florence, is extremely dangerous.
The National Hurricane Center says that it expects Florence will blow ashore as early as Friday afternoon around the North Carolina, South Carolina, trudging to the west with a potential for catastrophic flooding in the interior.
