NASA Releases Footage Of Hurricane Florence And Her 'Mike Tyson Punch'

As of 5:00 am (1100 GMT), Florence was a risky Category 4 hurricane packing sustained winds of 130 miles per hour (220 kilometers per hour), the Miami-based National Hurricane Center (NHC) said.

Wednesday morning, the National Hurricane Center measured wave heights of up to 83 feet in the Atlantic.

Emergency officials in the USA state of North Carolina are warning people to finish their preparations for Hurricane Florence on Wednesday before the storm arrives with life-threatening rainfall, storm surge and wind.

SC will not be evacuating Ridgeland Correctional Institution, even though it's in an area that could be hit by Hurricane Florence, the newspaper The State reports.

Since the case led out of the state of Minnesota, the department contacted the F.B.I., which took the lead on the investigation. One pair has been on display in the Smithsonian's National Museum of American History in Washington since 1979.

"This storm is going to linger awhile", said George Gallagher of global analytics firm CoreLogic during an online event on Wednesday to assess the threat.

Hurricane Florence continues to barrel towards the East Coast. "We've just never seen anything like this".

But in Maryland, possible impacts were diminishing as the storm's track shifted to the south and west. Meteorologists at the National Weather Service's Baltimore/Washington forecast office said strong winds are "unlikely to be a factor" here, and heavy rain is expected to be a risk only for Southern Maryland and to the south.

A crew of about 80 rescuers from Montgomery County is headed to SC to help deal with Hurricane Florence and its aftermath.

In this region, the current storm of anyone's lifetime is 1989's Hurricane Hugo - with winds of 140 miles per hour, it was the most powerful hurricane to hit land north of Florida since weather records began in 1851.

The National Hurricane Center (NHC) said: "Florence is still forecast to be an extremely risky major hurricane when it nears the USA coast late Thursday and Friday".

A graphic of Hurricane Florence's path, generated today (Sept. 12) at 2 p.m. ET by the National Hurricane Center, shows an approximate representation of coastal areas under a hurricane warning (red), hurricane watch (pink), tropical storm warning (blue) and tropical storm watch (yellow). More than 1 million residents have been ordered to evacuate from the coastline of the three states, while university campuses, schools and factories were being shuttered.

North Carolina is the country's leading producer of tobacco, second-biggest producer of hogs and a major poultry producer. Before it pummels the United States coastline, Florence could become close to a Category 5 storm - meaning winds could approach 157 miles per hour. Tropical Storm Isaac was expected to pass south of Puerto Rico, Haiti, the Dominican Republic and Cuba, while Hurricane Helene was moving northward away from land. Coastal North Carolina could see 20 to 30 inches as well. More to come on this part of the forecast.
