How big is Hurricane Florence?

Federal states of emergency have been declared in all three states, and collectively about 1.5 million people have fled the coast under mandatory evacuation orders.

The National Weather Service said Florence "will likely be the storm of a lifetime for portions of the Carolina coast".

The pivot in the forecasted track of Florence led Georgia's governor to declare a state of emergency for all 159 counties, home to 10.5 million people.

"I fear that severe outages will now reach upstate SC, and flooding, perhaps across the state, could delay expected power restoration efforts for weeks after this storm passes", he s aid.

September 15 (UPI) Tropical Storm Helene was expected to bring heavy rain, storm-force winds and large surf swells to the Azores this weekend, the National Hurricane Center said Saturday.

"Plan to be without power for days", Cooper said.

"The waves and the wind this storm may bring is nothing like you've ever seen", he warned residents.

Meteorologist Ryan Maue of weathermodels.com calculates that Florence could dump about 18 trillion gallons of rain in seven days over the Carolinas and Virginia, Georgia, Tennessee, Kentucky and Maryland.

Hurricane Florence has gotten a little bit weaker but it remains a very large and unsafe storm.

The coastal surge from Florence could leave the eastern tip of North Carolina under more than 3 metres of water in spots, projections showed.

From late Thursday through early Sunday, Florence will travel "literally slower than a walking pace (2 to 3 miles per hour on average)", CNN meteorologist Brandon Miller said.

Meteorologist Sandy LaCorte said the 11 a.m. forecast did not change much from the one six hours prior, and that the track takes the risky storm right through the heart of SC.

At 11 p.m. Wednesday, Florence was 280 miles southeast of Wilmington, North Carolina, and 335 miles east-southeast of Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. "In this case, the coastline north of the center could experience storm surge during at least two 12-hour tidal cycles, rather than just one, and at least some surge could spread southwest with Florence", Henson wrote.

"It's been really nice", Nicole Roland said. With that much size and strength, even a glancing blow could be devastating - something forecasters stressed as they noted the shift in the predicted track.

Florence's projected path includes half a dozen nuclear power plants, pits holding coal-ash and other industrial waste, and numerous hog farms that store animal waste in huge lagoons.

To back up that point, Graham cited a sobering statistic: "50 percent of the fatalities in these tropical systems is the storm surge - and that's not just along the coast".
