NOAA's latest report on Hurricane Florence places the centre of the weather system about 20 miles southwest of Wilmington, North Carolina and 55 miles east of Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.

The eye of the monstrous Hurricane Florence is now moving slowly in a southwestern direction near the coast of North Carolina.

When all is said and done, Florence could pour 40 inches of rain along some parts of the North Carolina coast, according to CNN.

What's more, Florence's historic amount of rainfall may lead to flooding of pig manure lagoons, and the hurricane's winds and storm surge have the potential to damage nuclear reactors in the region, Live Science previously reported. Hurricane-force winds extended 80 miles (130 kilometers) from its center, and tropical-storm-force winds up to 195 miles (315 kilometers). "We are stuck in the attic".

A tree fell on a homeowner's vehicle, parked in the driveway as Hurricane Florence made landfall in Wilmington, North Carolina. It is expected that the hurricane moves on or near the coastline during the night of Thursday through Friday.

Hurricane Florence approaches the U.S. Southeast Coast, where it is expected to make landfall on the border between North and SC this morning (Sept. 14), according to NOAA.

Rescue helicopters and trucks that can navigate floodwaters are also standing by.

About 10 million people could be affected by the storm and more than 1 million were ordered to evacuate the coasts of the Carolinas and Virginia.

"The idea of having to leave with my two cats and go somewhere for a week or more.once you leave, you don't know how many days it will be before you can return", a Wilmington resident named Kate told VOA. President Donald Trump declared a state of emergency on the federal level Tuesday for the Carolinas and Virginia.

But one innovative weather report has been praised for showing exactlyhow high water levels could get thanks to the storm.

The police chief of Wrightsville Beach suggested that those who chose to stay give him their next-of-kin contact information. FEMA, First Responders and Law Enforcement are supplied and ready.
