Heavy rain, wind gusts and rising floodwaters from Hurricane Florence swamped the Carolinas early on Friday as the massive storm crawled toward the coast, threatening millions of people in its path with record rainfall and punishing surf.
Although slow weakening is expected to begin by late Thursday, Florence is still forecast to be an extremely risky major hurricane when it nears the US coast late Thursday and Friday, the NHC added.
Now a Category 3 storm, Florence is sustaining winds at 135 miles per hour. She said it will become a "major flooding event".

Florence could strengthen some over open water and then weaken as it nears land, but the difference won't make it any less unsafe, forecaster Stacy Stewart wrote in a National Hurricane Center discussion. The latest forecast indicates that Florence could stall over or close to southeast North Carolina Friday, then could drift west or southwest this weekend.
The National Hurricane Center's projected track had Florence hovering off the southern North Carolina coast starting Thursday night before finally blowing ashore.
While a third added: 'Looks like a hard pounding... they are really going more than a few inches.

Wind speeds in the eye of Florence reached almost 150 miles per hour just after midnight on September 12, according to data recorded by an Air Force aircraft hovering over the hurricane.
Cooper said Florence would "continue its violent grind across the state for days".
"It is imperative that everyone follow local evacuation orders", President Trump tweeted Wednesday, along with a satellite video of the mammoth storm swirling through the Atlantic.
