These 4 reasons make Hurricane Florence extremely unsafe

Hurricanes Florence Isaac and Helene moving through the Atlantic

So we should all be even more appreciative than usual this week for their hard work and professionalism. "The full brunt of a major hurricane (Category 4 or so), then perhaps 30 to 40 inches of rainfall if the storm stalls". It could potentially become the "Harvey of the East Coast".

However, with the Florence making landfall in the the Carolinas, it is expected to cause prices to increase and fluctuate.

As of Tuesday morning, Florence was hurling 130-mph winds.

Florence is now at a Category 4 level, the second highest classification on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale, with winds now at 130 miles per hour (209 kilometers per hour). While a fast-traveling hurricane might blow off some shingles, a relentless onslaught such as this could easily blow off roofs or destroy houses. It is now blowing with 130 miles per hour winds.

But astonishing winds aren't the biggest danger.

"This is a unsafe storm, this storm will and has the potential to cause loss of life", said Jeff Byard, the associate administrator of FEMA. It's enough to cover Manhattan with almost 3,800 feet (1.1 kilometers) of water, more than twice as high as the island's tallest building.

Storm surge is basically a wall of seawater that could fall on and swallow parts of the coast.

"Cotton is probably the most vulnerable crop from this storm", McIntosh says.

"This one really scares me", National Hurricane Center Director Ken Graham said.

Henry Cavill Out As Superman At Warner Bros
HC bolting leaves a couple of HUGE holes in the DC cinematic universe, since Ben Affleck already ditched the Batman suit. With the reports that Henry Cavill is stepping down , it has actually been said that Warner Bros .is eyeing Michael B.

As he issued a mandatory evacuation order for the coastal region Monday afternoon, South Carolina Gov. Henry McMaster didn't mince words.

Strong high pressure will build back into Montreal this week, after the passage of post topical storm Gordon Monday night. But the storm is expected to strengthen again over the next day or so. That's because the longer this slow-moving hurricane hovers over land, the more rain it'll dump in the same places. "So this is not just going to be a coastal threat".

In a statement, NC State said it worked with officials from West Virginia University, the ACC and emergency management personnel to "arrive at a decision in the best interests of the safety and well-being of fans, student-athletes and all parties involved".

"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".

Nearby counties like Pender, Beaufort, Pitt, Greene and Lenoir could see 10 to 15 inches of rain. "The ground is already saturated and any winds could put down some trees and pose a problem". Significant coastal flooding and inland fresh water and river flooding is likely. That would make Florence the costliest storm ever to hit the U.S.in terms of property loss. Also, it is unlikely the Knights will be able to replace the North Carolina contest with another game as the Knights don't have a true open date. However, UCF's only open weekend is October 27, and North Carolina is playing an ACC game at Virginia that day.

According to the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale, people caught in a Category 4 storm can expect to see "catastrophic damage".

"People need to make sure they have enough food, water, any medications they need, lights and batteries", he said.

Duke came under pressure to address coal-ash storage after about 39,000 tons spilled in 2014 from a pond near Eden, North Carolina.
