(Worthy News) - Hurricane Florence is spreading heavy rain and strong winds into the Carolinas, with landfall expected near the border between North Carolina and South Carolina on Friday, kicking off an agonizing crawl through the Southeast into early next week, producing catastrophic inland rainfall flooding, life-threatening storm surge and destructive winds.

As of 11 p.m. EDT, Florence's eye was located about 50 miles south of Morehead City, North Carolina, or about 60 miles east-southeast of Wilmington, North Carolina, crawling northwestward at just 6 mph.

Wind gusts have reached as high as 106 mph at Cape Lookout, North Carolina, while a 105-mph gust was recently reported at Fort Macon, North Carolina. [ Source: Weather (Read More...) ]
