Hurricane Florence Cat-4 forces over 1 million people to flee US East Coast
With Category 4 hurricane Florence rapidly approaching the east coast and weather officials issuing hurricane warnings for more than 300 miles of coastline, more than 1 million people faced a choice Tuesday: stay home and take their chances with the storm, or compete with heavy traffic to drive inland.
The National Weather Service said Hurricane Florence will bring life-threatening storm surge and rainfall to parts of the Carolinas and Mid-Atlantic states.
And despite mandatory evacuation orders in coastal areas of North Carolina, South Carolina, and Virginia, many residents haven’t decided to leave.
Tropical-storm-force winds are due to reach the coasts of North and South Carolina on Thursday morning, and hurricane-force winds may be felt around Thursday night, ahead of an anticipated Friday morning landfall.
Florence is one of the strongest hurricanes to churn toward the eastern seaboard in decades.
