Tropical-force winds extend 200 miles from the middle of the storm, meaning coastal North Carolina is already feeling their power.

Feinstein notes that with the hurricane's change of direction to a more southerly track Wednesday, it appears Florence no longer poses a threat to Charlotte, one of American's busiest hubs, minimizing the impact on the airline's operations there.

It is unclear exactly how many people fled, but more than 1.7 million people in the Carolinas and Virginia were warned to clear out.

"This is a life-threatening situation", the National Weather Service (NWS) in Wilmington, North Carolina, said on Thursday morning.

As of 9 a.m. Thursday, Hurricane Florence has grown in size to almost 650 miles wide. But the restaurant had locked its doors only to comply with a police order.

He said he usually doesn't make the pizzas himself, but he was on Thursday because "everybody is scared", including most of his staff. Up to 40 inches of rain could be possible in certain areas along the Carolina border, but many places could see at least 20 inches.

The rest of South and North Carolina into southwest Virginia is expected to produce 6 to 12 inches of rainfall, isolated 24 inches, the NHC said.

But North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper warned: "Don't relax, don't get complacent".

The National Hurricane Center predicts the hurricane will cause up to 13 feet of storm surge on the East Coast. Now, there are signs that Hurricane Florence could deliver a similar blow to the East Coast beginning on Thursday, making it even more important to evacuate before the storm arrives. It ranged 59 to 83 feet Wednesday morning.

The tropical cyclone is expected to unload 10 trillion gallons of rainfall in North Carolina, weather.us meteorologist Ryan Maue said. The storm to the island, leaving many residents without potable water or for months. Then, it will likely hover along the coast on Saturday (Sunday NZT), pushing up to 4m of storm surge and dumping 50 to 75cm of rain on both states, before slogging over the Appalachian Mountains.

"This time it's important". "You need to go on and get out now". A high-pressure ridge over the Central and Eastern US is said to be blocking the storm's further movement along its original vectors, though it could still curve again once over land. "Whether you have a house or not, when the storm comes it will bring everyone together". "Gracious heavenly father God, just with those in the flood zone, may the damage not be so much", they prayed. Tropical Storm Olivia has made landfall in the Hawaiian islands, the Philippines are bracing for the powerful typhoon Mangkhut, and Tropical Storm Isaac is nearing the Leeward Islands.

With a storm surge warning in effect, the authorities urge people to prepare themselves for the disaster. "If we lose the house, oh well, we can get housing".

His friend Daniel Gomez is also planning to stick around.

The Outer Banks Hospital expects to keep its doors open for anyone who needs emergency care during the hurricane, McCammon reports.

"But I'm staying", she said.

"The time to leave is running out, there will come a time when it will be too late and the rescue teams will not be able to come because they will also have to take refuge", warned South Carolina Governor Henry McMaster.

A flight-tracking service says about 1,200 US airline flights scheduled for Thursday or Friday have been canceled, with some airports in the Carolinas essentially shut down.
