"The waves and the wind this storm may bring are nothing like you've ever seen", he said. "That, folks, is extremely life-threatening".

"We here in North Carolina are bracing for a hard hit", North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper said Monday.

President Donald Trump was briefed on the hurricane and said the "federal government stands by, ready to assist 24/7".

Henry McMaster issued a mandatory evacuation ahead of Hurricane Florence for all coastal counties in SC on Monday, including Beaufort, Colleton, and Jasper counties. And Virginia's governor ordered a mandatory evacuation for some residents of low-lying coastal areas, while some coastal counties in North Carolina have done the same.

Florence could be the worst hurricane to hit the Carolinas in over 60 years since category 4 hurricane "Hazel" struck in 1954.

"To the incredible citizens of North Carolina, South Carolina and the entire East Coast - the storm looks very bad!" wrote the president, who canceled a planned rally Friday in MS because of the impending storm.

"This is a unsafe storm".

National Hurricane Center says swells generated by Florence are affecting Bermuda and portions of the U.S. East Coast.

More than a million coastal residents have been ordered to leave their homes ahead of the storm's projected arrival on Thursday, with emergencies already declared in the states of North and South Carolina, Virginia and Maryland.

"This is going to produce heavy rainfall, and it may not move very fast".

I love Jesus", she said, "But, he thinks Jesus tells him to say things-I'm like, 'Jesus didn't say that.' Scary". In her book, Newman gives an in-depth look at her visit on the talk show in 2017.

Seven other UNC athletic events are also canceled or postponed because of Hurricane Florence.

A warm ocean gives hurricanes their fuel, and Florence is moving over an area with water temperatures nearing 85 degrees (30 Celsius), hurricane specialist Eric Blake wrote.

As of Tuesday morning, hurricane force winds were extending up to 40 miles from the storm's center and "tropical storm force winds" were showing up as far away as 150 miles, said the National Weather Service.

"Unfortunately, the models were right".

A Category 4 hurricane with 130 miles per hour winds is bearing down on the US East Coast, bringing a risk of devastating floods.

Wind strength that high is catastrophic, with potential impacts including damage so severe that areas are left "uninhabitable for weeks or months", according to the hurricane center.

The storm is now 905 miles east-southeast of Cape Fear, North Carolina, with landfall predicted between Charleston, South Carolina and Norfolk, Virginia. A turn toward the northwest and then the north-northwest is forecast Wednesday and Thursday.

He said Florence could rival the impact of Hurricane Hugo, which wreaked $7bn (£5.3bn) in damage and claimed 49 lives in 1989. And with little wind shear to pull the storm apart, Florence's hurricane wind field was expected to expand over the coming days, increasing its storm surge and inland wind threats.

Meanwhile, there are two other storms in the vicinity - Isaac and Olivia have become tropical storms, with Isaac heading for the Caribbean and Olivia set to hit Hawaii early on Wednesday.

Airlines, including American and Southwest, have started letting passengers change travel plans that take them into the hurricane's possible path.
