With little wind shear to pull the storm apart, Florence's hurricane-strength winds are expanding, reaching 40 miles from the eye of the storm, with tropical storm-force winds reaching up to 150 miles.

"Florence is expected to produce total rainfall accumulations of 15 to 20 inches with isolated maxima to 30 inches near Florence's track over portions of North Carolina, Virginia, and northern SC through Saturday". Our prayers and thoughts go to our friends, family and loyal readership in that part of our coverage area.

Henry McMaster lifted the mandatory evacuation for Hurricane Florence in Beaufort, Jasper and Colleton counties Wednesday, Beaufort County schools will remain closed Wednesday.

Cavaliers athletic director Carla Williams says safety is the top priority in the decision. "At this point, it's a waiting game, but we're not taking any chances". For those not in the storm's direct path, officials are still warning about the residual high winds, heavy rain, and potential flooding. Even scarier: It could get more violent as it gets closer to the Carolinas. We are back at it again. This year, farmers have been using manure as fertilizer through the year and the lagoons can handle as much as 25 inches (64 centimeters) of rain. It's very important we work together as a team. "And now it looks like we're going to get way more than we need".

Florence, a Category 4 storm with winds of 130 miles per hour (210 kph), was expected to make landfall on Friday, bringing heavy, sustained rain and potentially deadly flooding to the U.S. Southeast coast. "Even if you have a slow season, it only takes one storm to really have an impact and cause a lot of damage".

SC lifted mandatory evacuation orders for three coastal counties as the storm's path became more certain.

Tuesday afternoon, lanes were reversed on US 501 and three other SC highways as residents of the coastal area fled from Hurricane Florence, a raging tropical cyclone that is expected to deliver a crippling blow to a large swath of the Mid-Atlantic Coast and inland areas today (Thursday) and tomorrow.

South Carolina State Veterinarian Boyd Parr has suspended some of the requirements for the interstate transport of animals to accommodate evacuations ahead of Hurricane Florence.

Hurricane Florence to hit North Carolina, flooding rains ahead
Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 80 miles from the center and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 195 miles. According to NHC: "A Hurricane Warning means that hurricane conditions are expected somewhere within the warning area.


Hurricane Florence continued its path towards the US on Tuesday with the potential to cause catastrophic damage to the coasts of the mid-Atlantic and southeastern regions, according to officials. "Evacuees should verify that the facilities to which they are evacuating also are waiving requirements before arriving at those facilities".

Isaac, a weakening Category 1 hurricane, is much farther south, and is facing the same winds that threatened to rip Hurricane Florence apart.

North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper on September 10 urged North Carolina residents, businesses and visitors not to delay preparations and to follow evacuation orders.

For many people, the challenge could be finding a safe refuge: If Florence slows to a crawl, it could bring torrential rains all the way into the Appalachian mountains and as far away as West Virginia, causing flash floods, mudslides and other risky conditions in places that have already experienced lots of rain recently.

Elizabeth City State University announced it was cancelling classes today after noon and starting a voluntary evacuation of student residence halls.

"I've been doing this since 1983", Roberts said as he completed an order for another load of supplies.

Boeing Co suspended work on Tuesday at the SC plant where it assembles 787 widebody jetliners, and a Volvo automobile plant in South Carolina's evacuation zone was also closed, company officials said. Residents of Zone A are urged to move to higher ground.
