Hurricane Florence, after weeks of warnings, has finally begun to touch down in the Carolinas on Thursday afternoon. "I can take care of all of that", Chris Johnson told ABC News. "It's probably good for our marriage". We only need to remember that tropical storm Irene was not a hurricane when it created tremendous damage to homes and covered bridges in Vermont in 2011.
