Hurricane Florence: Giant, slow-moving storm causes deluge as it makes landfall
15 September 2018, 05:12 | Ross Houston
At least five reportedly dead, including a mother and baby, after Hurricane Florence hits the US
At least four people were killed.
It was set to inundate nearly all of North Carolina in several feet of water, State Governor Roy Cooper told a news conference, while National Weather Service forecaster Brandon Locklear predicted up to eight months of rain in two or three days.
The centre urges people within the affected areas to take all necessary actions to protect life and property from rising water and the potential for other unsafe conditions.
Meanwhile more than 630,000 homes and businesses were left without power by Friday afternoon.
"It's an uninvited brute who doesn't want to leave".
Its surge could cover all but a sliver of the Carolina coast under as much as 11 feet (3.4 meters) of ocean water, and days of downpours could unload more than 3 feet (0.9 meters) of rain, touching off severe flooding. One of the casualties, a 77-year-old man, died after reportedly being blown away by the howling winds.
HurricaneFlorence, weakened but still risky, has crashed into the Carolinas on Friday as a giant, slow-moving storm that stranded residents with floodwaters and swamped part of the town of New Bern at the beginning of what could be a days-long deluge. "And since we're already on high ground, those two things together kind of help insulate us a little more than, I would say, others".
Satellites will continue to monitor the progress of Hurricane Florence from space to make more accurate predictions about where it's heading next. But the hurricane had slowed to a crawl, drenching coastal communities for hours on end.
The centre of the hurricane's eye came ashore at about 7:15am (local time) near Wrightsville Beach close to Wilmington, North Carolina, with sustained winds of 150kph, the National Hurricane Centre (NHC) said.
With a storm surge warning in effect, the authorities urge people to prepare themselves for the disaster.
Forecasters are predicting that the storm will continue to weaken but still dump potentially record-breaking amounts of rain as it moves slowly inland. Areas further from the coast could see 6-12in of rain.
That said, the storm is still expected to stall once it hits the Wilmington coast, with weather officials early Thursday raising the expected total rainfall for Wilmington to 35 inches - weather officials had predicted 30 inches for Wilmington in briefings released Wednesday.
