Hurricane Florence Reduces Its Intensity But Not Its Destructive Power

Hurricane Florence Reduces Its Intensity But Not Its Destructive Power

Hurricane Florence made landfall as a Category 1 storm on the southern East Coast early Friday morning, bringing with it unrelenting 90 miles per hour winds, a massive storm surge, and heavy rains that will continue to soak the Carolinas for days to come. Others could only wait and hope someone would come for them.

Volvo closed its new plant in Charleston, South Carolina, which employs 1,000 people who make the company's S60 sedan.

"WE ARE COMING TO GET YOU", New Bern city officials said on Twitter.

The Miami-based center says Florence is bringing "catastrophic" fresh water flooding over a wide area of the Carolinas.

The effects of Hurricane Florence have already arrived to the US East Coast, where the National Hurricane Center forecasts as much as 40 inches of rain and 11 feet of flooding from storm surge in some places.

One resident, 67-year-old Linda Smith, told the MailOnline: "We're a little anxious about the storm surge so we came down to see what the river is doing now".

Adding to concerns, forecasters warned the larger and slow-moving storm could linger for days around the coast, leaving many without power and supplies.

"[It's] very eerie, the wind howling, the rain blowing sideways, debris flying", said Orsa, who lives nearby and fears splintering trees will pummel her house.

There were no immediate reports of storm-related deaths or serious injuries. Florence is expected to arrive in southeast North Carolina on Friday morning before drifting south into SC.

Florence is forecast to significantly weaken as it crawls across central South Carolina Saturday; however, residents inland have been warned to expect life-threatening floods and to be without power for days.

About 200 people were rescued in New Bern, a small coastal city 90 miles further north-west, with another 150 residents awaiting help after a 10ft surge in floodwater caused by hours of heavy rainfall.

In Jacksonville, North Carolina, next to Camp Lejeune, firefighters and police fought wind and rain as they went door-to-door to pull people out of the Triangle Motor Inn after the structure began to crumble and the roof started to collapse.

"I said, 'Why get on the road like this?"

About 10 million people could be affected by the storm and more than 1 million were ordered to evacuate the coasts of the Carolinas and Virginia. Fortunately for House, he says this storm should not be a devastating event for the beach town in terms of loss of life.
