The center of the storm was 105 miles east/southeast of Wilmington, according to FEMA's 3 p.m. update.
The area to the north of Florence's landfall along the North Carolina coast-storm surge is always worst to the "right" of a storm's center, where its rotation pushes water onshore-is less populated and developed than the New Jersey and NY shores.
Wilmington, N.C., just north of where the hurricane is expected to come ashore, was sunny around midday on Wednesday as the town appeared to be emptying. A high-pressure ridge over the Central and Eastern US is said to be blocking the storm's further movement along its original vectors, though it could still curve again once over land.
As the trough moves east, it will disrupt the winds that steer the hurricane, Stewart said.
People in areas vulnerable to a risky hurricane have left or are fleeing ahead of the storm's expected Friday or Saturday landfall.

Florence diminished to Category 2 strength but will remain powerful enough to sock the Carolinas with brutal wind, rain and storm surge. "We're about to be in the thick of it". And Florence is a large storm, with hurricane-force winds extending outward up to 80 miles from the center and tropical-storm-force winds outward up to 195 miles. When and where it will make landfall is unclear. "If they're telling you to leave, you have to leave", Graham said.
An additional 25 percent of deaths are related to rain, he said. "You need to go on and get out now".
Florence's nighttime winds were down to 110 miles per hour from a high of 140 miles per hour, and the Category 3 storm fell to a Category 2, with a further slow weakening expected as the storm nears the coast.
The storm's possible track now bends farther to the SW and closer to cities like Jacksonville, but it's the delay and the possible repeat of a Harvey-like storm cycle that has officials and weather forecasters anxious.
Those areas are expected to experience tropical storm conditions and rainfall amount of up to 8 inches, and Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands facing possible isolated amounts on 4 inches.
But the record of life-threatening storms could be soon broke as a new one seems to be quickly developing in the same water basin.

He warned of "battering winds and relentless rains that will last for days", with storm surges up to the height of a two-story building in vulnerable coastal areas.
