Hurricane Florence Approach Swamps North And South Carolina
Sep 16, 2018, 19:00
A surge is likely along portions of the SC coast.
"We expect the eye of Hurricane Florence to reach the coast near Wilmington, North Carolina, early Friday morning", according to AccuWeather Hurricane Expert Dan Kottlowski. The storm's forward speed had slowed to 6 miles per hour, and forecasters were concerned it might have stalled.
Around 11 p.m. Friday, Florence was about 15 miles west-northwest of Myrtle Beach, SC, moving west-southwest at 5 mph, packing maximum-sustained winds of 65 mph. Storm surges aren't walls of water, like a tsunami, as commonly thought.
It is expected to move across parts of southeastern North Carolina and eastern SC on Friday and Saturday, then head north over the western Carolinas and central Appalachian Mountains early next week, the NHC said.

"We've got a lot of resources, but we don't want to put them out there where they could be injured or maybe worse", Sprayberry said ahead of the storm. "Our meteorologists are saying that the rainfall amounts will be devastating in certain areas", he said Thursday.
By mid-afternoon the winds had dropped to 75 miles per hour (120 kph) and the centre was moving west at 6 miles per hour (10 kph), the NHC said, and parts of North and SC would get as much as 40 inches of rain (1 metre).
