"If the hurricane miraculously, overnight, decides to go somewhere else, we can take corrective action", he said, saying it was easier to "stand down" state resources than have them "stand up" at a moment's notice.

Its center was expected to move between Bermuda and the Bahamas on Tuesday and Wednesday and approach the coast of SC or North Carolina on Thursday, the National Hurricane Center said.

Hurricane Florence is now a Category 4 storm and is "rapidly strengthening" as it heads toward the Carolinas coast, bringing "exceptionally heavy rain", the National Hurricane Center said Monday.

South Carolina's governor ordered the state's entire coastline to be evacuated starting at noon on Tuesday.

In announcing his evacuation order, South Carolina Gov. Henry McMaster said an estimated 1 million people would be fleeing the coast. "North Carolina is taking Hurricane Florence seriously, and you should too".

The hurricane is expected to make landfall in North or SC sometime between Thursday and Friday, just after the average peak of the hurricane season.

Cooper said he declared the State of Emergency and waived transportation rules to help farmers harvest and transport their crops more quickly. Hurricane warnings are issued 36 hours before tropical storm force winds hit the areas, and indicate hurricane conditions will follow.

"We're preparing as we're playing the football game on Saturday with all of our travel plans and we'll be in constant communication with South Carolina", Hamrick said. The eye of the storm is predicted to reach Davidson County by Saturday morning, having decreased in strength to a tropical depression with maximum wind speeds of 35 miles per hour.

"Do you want to get hit with a train or do you want to get hit with a cement truck?" said Jeff Byard, an administrator with the Federal Emergency Management Agency. Strong storm surge, unrelenting rain, and extremely high winds will start arriving as early as Thursday with hurricane and storm surge warnings in effect. Many more were left to wonder where they might be safe if days of torrential rains unleash floods from the mountains to the sea.

The storm's path could change, though the National Weather Service gets more certain of its forecast as the window to landfall shortens.
