People Have Spotted Something Hilariously NSFW About Hurricane Florence

The centre of Florence is expected to hit North Carolina's southern coast on Friday, then drift southwest before moving inland on Saturday, enough time to drop as much as one metre of rain in some places, according to the National Hurricane Center.

Florence's winds weakened as it drew closer to land, dropping from a peak of 140 miles per hour (225 kph) earlier in the week, and the hurricane was downgraded from a terrifying Category 4 to a 2. The National Hurricane Center is calling for 20 to 30 inches of rain in North Carolina, with spots up to 40 inches. Florence, a storm expected to significantly impact the U.S. Officials from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (Fema) have warned that failure to do so could be potentially deadly.

Tens of thousands of homes and businesses could be flooded in North Carolina, Governor Roy Cooper warned.

Officials in several states have declared states of emergency, including in the Carolinas, Georgia, Virginia and Maryland, where coastal areas are still recovering from summer storms.

Residents of the Carolinas and neighboring states should consult local authorities for any evacuation orders and other preparation guidelines.

By way of computer modeling, Duke Energy anticipates between 1 and 3 million customers in the Carolinas to lose power in addition to those Dominion serves in Virginia. "It's chilling, even from space". "We're kind of at the mercy of the storm".

Even though the ISS is 400km above the storm, Florence is so huge that astronauts needed a wide-angle lens to capture the storm.

People look out over the surf before Hurricane Florence comes ashore on Carolina Beach, North Carolina, Sept. 13, 2018. But the effect on major air travel hubs in the Southeast is expected to be less than feared.

"This is an excellent opportunity for all of us to remind individuals that these storms can come up quickly, and we need to be prepared", County Executive Don Mohler said. Shelters in the city were filling and some people were being bused inland to Raleigh, even though some residents there were told they might have to evacuate because of flooding.

Train travel: Amtrak has announced cancellations on northbound and southbound trains going through North and SC.

"This is going to be a bad, bad situation".

Landfall is expected late Thursday or early Friday, and the National Hurricane Center fears the storm "will slow considerably or stall, leading to a prolonged and exceptionally heavy and unsafe rainfall event Friday-Sunday".

The path of Hurricane Florence sees it going over some of the poorest areas on the eastern seaboard. The ISS is now orbiting at an altitude of about 400 km above the surface of the Earth meaning it has an incredible view of Hurricane Florence as it rages.

The storm's outer bands have reached the Wilmington region, prompting flooding in coastal communities from the hurricane's high storm surges, which forecasters said would be up to 13 feet high.
