Police chief Luther Reynolds added that he has been in touch with the Charleston County Sheriff's Office and North Charleston police about the situation and preparing for Hurricane Florence.

People who thought they were relatively safe from the onslaught of Hurricane Florence began boarding up and Georgia's governor declared a state of emergency Wednesday for all 159 counties in the state as uncertainty over the path of the monster storm spread worry along the Southeastern coast. "It's a big one", he said.

As well, Global Affairs said Wednesday Canadians should avoid travelling to parts of the Caribbean, including Dominica, Guadeloupe and Martinique, because tropical storm Isaac is headed in that direction.

"It is an extremely, dangerous, life-threatening, historic hurricane", said North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper, according to The Associated Press.

WCNC-TV meteorologist Brad Panovich told WFAE Morning Edition host Marshall Terry that the shift of Florence means more rain for the Charlotte area.

The president signed emergency declarations for the Carolinas and Virginia, a move that frees up federal money and resources.

He warned residents to take precautions "because once this storm is upon us, we're not going to be able to send emergency personnel out to rescue you".

Hurricane Florence is still a few days out from making landfall, and as we've seen, the forecast tract has varied.

"I can't emphasise enough the potential for unbelievable damage from wind, storm surge and inland flooding". Forecasts predict as much as 20 inches of rain in some places but one computer model warned there could be up to 45 inches, almost four feet.

Sharp said weather conditions will deteriorate as we go through the day on Thursday with rain, a little wind and the chance of tornadoes. "You're going to be displaced from your home in coastal areas".

Astronauts at the International Space Station, for example, struggled to fit the enormous storm into one frame.

The last time the USA capital declared a state of emergency was in January 2016 when a winter storm dubbed "Snowzilla" blanketed the capital region in knee-deep snow. A lot of people hearing this are remembering Hurricane Hugo in 1989. This would put us in a swath of maybe up to 4-8 inches of rain from Friday night to early Monday evening and could linger beyond that as the remnants cast off to our west.

The storm is expected to hit the Carolinas hard later this week. The Virginia National Guard is planning to initially bring up to 1,500 soldiers and airmen to offer help in the state's response operations. "This is going to be catastrophic in parts of eastern North Carolina".

Even Wilmington, North Carolina - a coastal city accustomed to severe weather - is bracing for an unusually brutal impact.
