Dont play games with it: Florence takes aim at Carolinas

Amazon again puts disaster relief efforts in motion as Hurricane Florence set to punish Carolina coast Rick Scott to deploy emergency teams, resources ahead of Hurricane Florence

"Whether or not the game could have been played, we made the decision we think is best for the state and those who are evacuating the coast", athletics director Ray Tanner said in a statement released by the school. The entire coastlines of North and SC, in addition to some parts of southeastern Virginia, are under a mandatory evacuation plan. "We'll handle it. We're ready, we're able".

Randall Hill / Reuters Lisa Evers (Foreground) and her daughter Amanda Hamilton, both of Oak Island, decorate their storm shutters before evacuating ahead of the arrival of Hurricane Florence in Oak Island, North Carolina, U.S. September 12, 2018.

Whittington is aware of a potentially 13-foot storm surge that's predicted to hit Carolina Beach before, during and after Florence makes landfall, battering and inundating low-lying homes with water. "With time, the wind pushes the water into every nook and cranny you can think of", Graham said. "That's the primary driver of the evacuations that are underway by the states of North Carolina, South Carolina, and Virginia right now".

The storm has been downgraded to a Category 3 hurricane, but still poses a significant risk to coastal communities due to flooding and severe storm surges.

Fox News reported that sustained winds were picking up a bit along the North Carolina coast. "I encourage Georgians to be prepared for the inland effects of the storm as well as the ensuing storm surge in coastal areas".

"If you are under an evacuation order and you haven't left, the time to leave is now".

The TV musical also made EGOT'ers out of serial Tony-snatchers Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice (they have nine between them). NBC's Jesus Christ Superstar Live In Concert has won five Emmys during the 2018 Creative Arts Emmy Awards on Sunday night.

The eastbound lanes of several major highways have been shut to allow traffic to flow inland, but the exodus was slow along roads jammed with outward-bound vehicles. "The building's solid and Buddha will protect us". "You can't stop Mother Nature".

"Everything is packed", Espinoza said.

"I've been through hurricanes before but never with kids", she said.

Dave Clark, senior vice president of operations for the Seattle-based tech giant, tweeted Wednesday about how Amazon teams are already "forward deploying" relief supplies to fulfillment centers closer to what is expected to be the point of impact in the region. It could stall just off the coast and then drift south along the SC coast and possibly make a landfall as a weaker system if it doesn't make it clearly over the coast of North Carolina.

As of Tuesday, more than 1.7 million people in the Carolinas and Virginia were warned to clear out.

Helene was weakening, however, and posed no danger to land, the NHC said, while Isaac could bring heavy rain to Martinique, Dominica and Guadeloupe.
