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.
