The storm was moving northwest at 17 miles per hour (28 km/h). Wilmington is expected to get battered before the storm drifts south. Hurricane Florence is predicted to hit the Carolinas later this week.

That's high enough to cover a house not on stilts. The storm knocked out power to more than 890,000 homes and businesses, according to poweroutage.us, which tracks the USA electrical grid. "Surge-related flooding depends on the relative timing of the surge and the tidal cycle, and can vary greatly over short distances".

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.
