SATURDAY: The southward motion of the storm after it makes landfall will likely leave the D.C. region with mostly clear skies on Saturday.
"It is an extremely unsafe, life-threatening, historic hurricane", North Carolina governor Roy Cooper said.
In this region, the current storm of anyone's lifetime is 1989's Hurricane Hugo - with winds of 140 miles per hour, it was the most powerful hurricane to hit land north of Florida since weather records began in 1851.
If Hurricane Florence's predicted track holds, it will be the first Category 4 storm to make landfall directly on the North Carolina coast. And there will be flooding in the inland areas as well. More than 1 million residents have been ordered to evacuate from the coastline of the three states, while university campuses, schools and factories were being shuttered.
The storm has pretty much followed the forecast track through now, but the issue will be Thursday or Friday as it nears the coast and the steering currents collapse. "People need to stay vigilant Thursday night through the weekend, and I would say into next week".
The storm, which is building up over the Atlantic, is due to make landfall in either North or SC within the next few days, and is expected to be the worst storm to hit the area in 30 years.
Strong, sustained winds could reach 30 to 50 miles per hour with gusts over 60 miles per hour, according to the National Weather Service forecast. "This is going to be catastrophic in parts of eastern North Carolina".
A hurricane warning - meaning hurricane conditions are expected within 36 hours - is in effect for a long stretch of the coast, from the Santee River in SC to Duck, N.C., which is part of the Outer Banks.
After continuing for a few metres the driver then abandons the vehicle while it is still moving and tries to flee on foot. The airport's operator said a Twitter that after an "incident" traffic had been suspended until further notice.
Further strengthening is still expected and Florence will remain a major hurricane as it nears the Carolina coast into Thursday. The first impacts were already being seen on barrier islands as risky rip currents and seawater flowing over a coastal road.
