Hurricane Florence likely to affect southeast United States energy infrastructure

NASA remembers September 11th

Top winds were holding at 90 miles per hour - that's just a Category 1 hurricane - but some communities were already submerged in more than six feet of water as the storm drenched the coast. Florence is now at the weakest of five categories on the Saffir-Simpson scale.

Hurricane categories only consider the wind speed, Silverman said, and "a hurricane is so much more than just the wind".

Areas along the coast from Cape Fear to Cape Lookout, NC, including the Neuse, Pamlico, Pungo and Bay rivers may experience storm surges from 9 to 13 feet.

Two women who were riding out the storm dance to the music outside the Barbary Coast bar in downtown Wilmington, N.C., as Hurricane Florence threatens the coast, September 13, 2018. Like a giant hair dryer, these winds push seawater into low-lying marshland and delta areas.

Hurricane Florence's outer edges have started to batter the coast of North Carolina - with winds of 100mph bending trees and shooting frothy seawater onto the streets.

Keith Acre of North Carolina's Department of Emergency Management said: "This has been a really large evacuation and sheltering operation, probably the largest we've done, so that has not been an east lift".

WXII-TV reported that 150 people were waiting to be rescued from rising waters in the city New Bern.

The NHC notes that amount of rainfall would "produce catastrophic flash flooding and prolonged significant river flooding". That makes it hard to project how the region will ultimately be affected.

It's now pummeling the coast of North Carolina with 90mph winds and heavy rain, the CNN reported Friday.

More news: Hurricane Florence has weakened but will still be devastating

"This is a very risky storm", said FEMA's Long, urging people still in evacuation zones to heed orders to flee to safer ground. His group, the Office of Water Prediction and Luettich's team are working together to build such models now.

Once the centre moves inland, the intensity of the hurricane is set to decrease, according to a forecast discussion posted on the NHC's website. "Remember that floods will occur in places that do not receive a hurricane or even tropical storm level winds". It is expected that the hurricane moves on or near the coastline during the night of Thursday through Friday.

People in areas vulnerable to the unsafe hurricane, particularly those in coastal regions, have fled ahead of the storm. Her team manages 32 wild horses living in the Rachel Carson Reserve near Beaufort, North Carolina.

"I would not read too much into the categories", said Howard Silverman, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service.

North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper warned residents not to "underestimate" Florence's power.

He spent the last few hours of calm before the storm visiting those who stayed, collecting contact information for their next-of-kin.

Of course, these various components blend together to cause maximum, and long-standing, devastation-which is what makes prudent pre-storm measures, and sustained post-storm aid, so critical to preserving human life.

"There definitely is a risk, but the horses are smart. And the vast majority of the time they are OK", she said.
