Hurricane Florence now CAT2; Life-threatening Storm Surge likely

Hurricane Florence now CAT2; Life-threatening Storm Surge likely

Hurricane Florence loss overall strength from a CAT4 to now CAT2 with sustained winds of 110 mph.

Why?

Flo (Florence) was being demolished by a stiff 20kt breeze from the south with added dry air at 200mb (40,000). But this shouldn’t allow you to let your guard down. Flooding, Coastal Flooding and Life-threatening Storm Surge with Damaging winds are still likely.

A Cat2 landfall is likely!

Storm Prediction Center has issued a tornado watch (Hurricane Florence Related Watch)

Extensive rainfall is likely that will lead to prolonged river flooding!
