Trump on Florence: "It's tremendously big and tremendously wet"

(He's not wrong)


Sitting in the Oval Office today, President Donald Trump warned the Southeast coast of the United States of America to be ready for a large, maybe unprecedented storm that's "tremendously big and tremendously wet."

But, I mean, he's not wrong. Florence was a strong category 4 storm when the National Weather Service issued their 5 p.m. update on Tuesday. Some 500 miles across, experts say. The latest track shows a probably landfall somewhere near the border between the Carolinas, and areas along the coast from Georgetown, S.C. to Duck, N.C. on the northern Outer Banks, are now under a hurricane warning.

The latest National Hurricane Center forecast shows the earliest that tropical storm-force winds could reach the Charleston area would be Thursday morning just before 8 a.m.
