Amazing, yet terrifying video from a plane flying into the eye of Hurricane Florence, takes a look inside the Category 4 storm that's barreling towards the US East Coast. In Virginia, officials have evacuated one state prison, though local jails in the affected area are planning to keep inmates in place after stockpiling food and fuel, the Virginian-Pilot reports.

Alexander Gerst, a German astronaut who's now orbiting Earth from 250 miles up, has a warning for humans on the planet below him.

None of that is true, Meyers said, including the part about Puerto Rico being inaccessible ("There's a Jet Blue flight there every half hour", he noted), but it's not surprising that Trump is having a hard time calming people down because he is so freaked out over Bob Woodward's new book, Fear.

The center of Florence, a Category 2 hurricane, will approach the coasts of North and SC on Thursday, the NHC said, adding that it was expected to weaken after it moved inland. In South Carolina and inland parts of North Carolina, 5 to 10 inches of rain could fall, with 20 inches possible in some areas.

Fishel said storm surges are expected to be between nine and 13 feet and could cause greater problems when they back up into nearby bodies of water, including the Tar and Neuse rivers.

"Trucks, planes and people are ready to help if needed", Clark said, adding that the company is working with the Red Cross and others.

CNN reports dire word from FEMA associate administrator Jeff Byard, who warns that this storm is not to be reckoned with.

Duke Energy Corp expected between 25 percent and 75 percent of its 4 million customers would lose power in the Carolinas.

The NHC said the first tropical storm-force winds of at least 39 miles per hour (63 kph) would hit the region early on Thursday with the storm's centre reaching the coast Friday.

After making landfall this Friday (Sept. 14), the massive storm will now "wobble" southward and then head west, making a "big, grand tour" of the southeastern United States, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) meteorologist Kevin Scasny said in a statement released today (Sept. 12).

"The state is mobilizing all available resources to ensure public safety", Deal said.

SC authorities have turned four motorways into one-way routes away from the coast to speed the exodus.

Many nursing-home and elder-care institutions throughout the Carolinas closed and evacuated their residents in advance of Florence, anxious about a repeat of last year's deaths of elderly residents after Hurricane Irma struck Florida.
