"This is a powerful storm that can kill", said North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper in a Thursday press briefing.

"It's a real interesting piece of nature to have the eye of the storm be right in the midst of all the chaos we saw, and now we've got this break", Flock said.

Marson said they'd lost power and the winds were howling outside, but they had enough food and water to last them for days.

Cooper said Florence would "continue its violent grind across the state for days".

Further south, in Jacksonville, North Carolina, more than 60 people were evacuated from a hotel after police received a 911 call just before 1am, the city's public safety department said in a statement.

The storm made landfall Friday at 7:15 a.m. ET just south of Wrightsville Beach - about 6.5 miles due east for Wilmington, North Carolina. Hundreds more were rescued elsewhere from rising water. Forecasters warn it will bring "catastrophic freshwater flooding", according to the National Hurricane Center. "Especially for people that we've already told to evacuate". "We have an old jail building, and there was a sally port where vehicles could drive down into it", she says. "If God's coming for you, you can't run from him".

Water also rushed into the county's emergency operations center.

The National Hurricane Center described Florence's path as a wobble around southeastern North Carolina.

Florence also blew down trees, including one that went through the roof of Kevin DiLoreto's home in Wilmington.

"It's insane", he said in a phone interview. First responders urge residents to get out though, because this storm is unlike the others.

As of Wednesday night, Florence's tropical storm force winds were almost 400 miles wide - or the roughly the equivalent of driving from Washington, D.C, to Charlotte, North Carolina; or from Milwaukee, Wisconsin to St. Louis; or from Los Angeles to San Francisco.

Hurricane Florence is bearing down on the US East Coast as a Category 2 hurricane with winds up to 110mph - slower than yesterday but covering a wider area. Significant weakening is expected over the weekend.

As the climate warms, the way air moves through the atmosphere can become disrupted, possibly blocking these types of storms in place more often.

Nearly 20,000 people had taken refuge in 157 emergency shelters, Cooper said.

A friend later tweeted that the woman and her family had been rescued. There had been no reports of fatalities or injuries so far, she said.

For farmers, the department recommends moving livestock to higher ground, stocking up on drinking water for animals ahead of a storm, ensuring animal holding pens are clean and boarding up windows to prevent them from breaking if objects are blown into them. In the Philippines, evacuations were under way with Super Typhoon Mangkhut expected to hit on Saturday in an area impacting an estimated 5.2 million people.
