Hurricane Florence Latest Path Projected by GFS Model

Hurricane Florence Latest Path Projected by GFS Model

In this NOAA satellite handout image, shows Hurricane Florence (C) as it gains strength in the Atlantic Ocean southeast of Bermuda moving west on September 10, 2018.

Florence was about 625 miles southeast of Bermuda as of 5 a.m. ET Monday.

Last night, The National Hurricane Centre (NHC) said the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's hurricane hunter has found that Florence is strengthening, and is forecast to become a major hurricane on Monday.

Forecasters said Florence could become an extremely unsafe major hurricane sometime Monday and remain that way for days.

As Hurricane Florence-now upgraded to a Category 4 hurricane-appears headed toward the southeastern US, the governors of South Carolina, North Carolina and Virginia have declared states of emergency.

"We are not going to gamble with the lives of the people of South Carolina", McMaster said. "On the forecast track, the center of Florence will move over the southwestern Atlantic Ocean between Bermuda and the Bahamas Tuesday and Wednesday, and approach the coast of SC or North Carolina on Thursday". Further, residents and tourists should expect heavy prolonged rain upon the storm's arrival.

The hurricane center said the storm is expected to strengthen and speed up as it approaches the Carolina coast in the coming days.

On North Carolina's Outer Banks, Dawn Farrow Taylor, 50, was gathering photos and important documents and filling prescriptions Monday before heading inland.

"It's not likely to miss us", Heden said. If the forecast holds true, Florence would be the first category 4 storm to hit the North Carolina coast since Hurricane Hazel in 1954.

Holden Beach, North Carolina, was in the storm's path, according to forecasts on Monday.

"With this order government agencies will begin to mobilize in anticipation of a hurricane", McMaster said. One out of every five South Carolinians, about 1 million in all, are in the evacuation zones covering eight counties. It brings with it winds of 111 - 129 miles per hour. Even in areas far from the coast, he added, parts of North Carolina and Virginia could see rain totals of 10-15 inches over the next seven days.

Plants in the storm's path are shut down about 12 hours in advance of being hit.

"This morning, I received a full briefing from the Florida Division of Emergency Management on Hurricane Florence". While the exact track of Florence remains uncertain, the threat of a North Carolina landfall sometime Thursday into Friday continues to increase. The counter-clockwise rotation of hurricanes means more damage to the storm's upper right quadrant, viewing it from above, but less impact to the lower left side.
