Hurricane Florence rolled ashore in North Carolina with howling 90 miles per hour winds and terrifying storm surge early Friday, killing at least four people and trapping hundreds more in high water as it settled in for what could be a long and extraordinarily destructive drenching.

Florence was expected to make landfall near Cape Fear, North Carolina, at midday, and forecasters said its size meant it could batter the U.S. East Coast with hurricane-force winds for almost a full day. "This large-scale feature is expected to keep the hurricane moving northwestward today, followed by a turn toward the west at a much slower speed on Friday as the ridge to the north of Florence weakens due to a weak shortwave trough dropping slowly southward from the Ohio Valley".

Hurricane Florence already has inundated coastal streets with ocean water and left tens of thousands without power, and more is to come.

There have been two fatalities in Kinston as a result of Hurricane Florence, according to Lenoir County Emergency Services Director Roger Dail.

Some areas could receive 20 to 30 inches by the time the storm passes. Another man in the county who was checking on his dogs outside was killed in what his family thought was a wind-related death Friday morning, emergency officials said.

Tropical Storm Florence is continuing to drop torrential rain across the state as the system moves into SC.

"The water kept rising and kept rising", he said.

The river swamped the town after Hurricane Matthew came through two years ago: One church parishioner drowned during that storm, more than 700 families were displaced from their homes, and two of the city's largest public housing projects were destroyed, Foreman said. Traffic lights out of order because of power failures swayed in the gusty wind. Hurricane-force winds extended 90 miles (150 kilometers) from its center, and tropical-storm-force winds up to 195 miles (315 kilometers).

At least 12,000 people had taken refuge in 126 emergency shelters, Cooper said, with more facilities being opened.
