That means Florence's powerful winds will drive a more-destructive storm surge as it makes landfall.

Even as the first bands of Florence's rains and strong winds began to whip North Carolina's shore Thursday morning, ocean water ran into the streets on the southern end of North Carolina's Hatteras Island, according to The Virginian-Pilot's Jeff Hampton.

Florence is forecast to move near or over the coast of southern North Carolina and northeastern SC in the hurricane warning area Thursday night and Friday.

"You put your life at risk by staying", North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper said. "If you are on the coast, there is still time to get out safely". "Now it might be time for the exam", he said.

Michelle Stober loaded up valuables at her home on Wrightsville Beach to drive back to her primary residence in Cary, North Carolina.

One such tool helping hurricane-watchers keep track of Florence is the appropriately-named Hurricane Tracker app. After Florence's rain starts to fall this week, he said, the rainfall could continue through Monday.

About one million seven hundred thousand people have been ordered to evacuate on the coast of North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia. Many auto dealerships on the coast were already closed Wednesday ahead of the storm.

The National Hurricane Center's best guess was that Florence's eye would blow ashore as early as Friday afternoon around the North Carolina-South Carolina line.

About 5.25 million people live in areas under hurricane warnings or watches, and 4.9 million more live in places covered by tropical storm warnings or watches, the National Weather Service said. "These enormous waves are produced by being trapped along with very strong winds moving in the same direction as the storm's motion".

Coastal North Carolina felt the first bite of Hurricane Florence on Thursday as winds began to rise, a prelude to the slow-moving tempest that forecasters warned would cause catastrophic flooding across a wide swath of the USA southeast.

Quite simply, Hurricane Florence is a storm made worse by climate change.

Evacuation orders for low-lying areas were issued Monday and continued Tuesday.

"We hope to have something left when we get home", she said.

Emergency preparations in SC now include more than 2,100 of the state's National Guard soldiers. Some 11,000 power outages had been reported Thursday morning.

States up and down the East Coast have a great potential for severe weather.

In Charleston, the city government said that after giving out 53,000 sandbags, "there is no longer any sand available at any city of Charleston location".

Sea level along the coast of North Carolina and SC has risen more than a foot since 1950, as the warming ocean waters have expanded like a hot-air balloon, says climate scientist Jonathan Overpeck at the University of Michigan's School for Environment and Sustainability.

Satellite images show Florence has maintained a distinct eye and is well-organized.

The storm is moving toward the northwest at 17 miles per hour, the NHC said.

Analysts at Cox Automotive predicted that Florence won't destroy as many cars as Hurricane Harvey did in the car-dependent Houston area. Little change in strength is expected before the center reaches the coast, with weakening expected after the center moves inland.

A woman holding a child sleeps after being evacuated at Southeast Raleigh High School ahead of Hurricane Florence in Raleigh, N.C. on Wednesday. North Carolina alone could get from 20 to 30 inches, with isolated spots possibly receiving 40 inches.

Florence will bring large rainfall totals through Saturday in North Carolina, north SC and Virginia, causing catastrophic flash flooding.

The hurricane is located about 165 miles (270 km) east of Myrtle Beach, South Carolina with maximum sustained winds of 105 miles per hour (165 km per hour), it added.

The shift in the projected track spread concern to areas that once thought they were relatively safe. In South Carolina, Beaufort County Emergency Management Division Commander Neil Baxley told residents they need to prepare again for the worst just in case.

The term "storm surge" refers to rising seas that are whipped up by a storm. "It goes well inland".

"The heat fuels storms of all sorts and contributes to very heavy rain events and flooding", he said. "I think it's going to happen sooner than later".

Slower storms a thing of the future?
