The Atlantic hurricane is located about 450km east-southeast of Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, packing maximum sustained winds of 175km/h, the NHC said. Maximum gusts were measured at 130 miles per hour.

As of Tuesday, about 1.7 million people in North and SC and Virginia were under warnings to evacuate the coast, and hurricane watches and warnings extended across an area with about 5.4 million residents. But forecasters say there's an increased chance for tropical storm winds to reach Savannah.

The storm is expected to make landfall early Friday morning near Wilmington, North Carolina.

"We have been in some other hurricanes, we're not trying to be heroic or anything like that, but we feel like we have just as good a chance here as we would in town", she said.

Florence will likely strike the East Coast with life-threatening storm surge, destructive winds and massive inland rainfall flooding. Florence is now heading for ocean water with surface temperatures of around 85 degrees, meaning it will likely strengthen on its way to the East Coast. Mandatory evacuations began at 8 a.m.in many coastal communities. "It's called Mother Nature, you never know, but we know", he also said in a video posted to Twitter Wednesday morning. "It's time for our citizens to be a part of the team".

No storm watches or warnings are in effect for Georgia.

"Hurricane Florence is looking even bigger than anticipated".


"We could cover several states easily with the cloud cover alone", Graham said. Executives in North and South Carolina, Virginia, Maryland and the District of Columbia declared emergencies earlier in the week.

"The water could overtake some of these barrier islands and keep on going. That, folks, is extremely life-threatening". They said torrential rains in the mountains could easily cause flash floods, leading to extensive damage.

The very center of that bullseye may be Camp Lejeune, the sprawling Marine Corps training base, where authorities were opening emergency operation centers and staging equipment. "FEMA, First Responders and Law Enforcement are supplied and ready", President Donald Trump said in a tweet Wednesday.

More than 1 million residents have been ordered to evacuate the coastline of the three states, while university campuses, schools and factories were being shuttered.

Hurricane conditions will likely hit on Friday, but tropical storm conditions will arrive on Thursday, according to the hurricane center.

All eyes are on Hurricane Florence as it barrels towards the Carolinas.
