Maximum gusts were measured at 130 miles per hour.

With South Carolina's beach towns more in the bull's-eye because of the shifting forecast, OH vacationers Chris and Nicole Roland put off their departure from North Myrtle Beach to get the maximum amount of time on the sand. But forecasters say there's an increased chance for tropical storm winds to reach Savannah. Winds from the east have been causing coastal flooding this week along the western shore of the Chesapeake Bay, with high tides as much as 2 feet above normal in Anne Arundel, Calvert and St. Mary's counties.

The Category 4 storm was expected to start hitting the North and SC coasts sometime Thursday or Friday, and should make landfall near Wilmington, N.C., early Saturday morning, according to the latest forecast from the National Hurricane Center.

Locally, here in Northeast Florida and Southeast Georgia, the storm has generated a moderate risk of rip currents.

Forecasters say wind speeds have dropped from a high of 140 miles per hour (225 kph) to 110 miles per hour (175 kph), reducing it to a Category 2 storm. Experts are saying Florence, a "monster", could be one of the most powerful storms to ever hit the East Coast. Mandatory evacuations began at 8 a.m.in many coastal communities. The Mississippi Office for Homeland Security says teams arrived Wednesday in the Virginia towns of Dublin and Pulaski. "It's time for our citizens to be a part of the team".

Trump and officials urged residents in the path of the storm to evacuate before it is too late.

"We could cover several states easily with the cloud cover alone", 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 water could overtake some of these barrier islands and keep on going".

"Now is the time to shelter from life-threatening wind", the agency added. "That, folks, is extremely life-threatening". Will the winds be that strong or they'll be stronger when they get here than that?

The very center of that bullseye may be Camp Lejeune, the sprawling Marine Corps training base, where authorities were opening emergency operation centers and staging equipment.

North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper is foreboding in his assessment Hurricane Florence.

The storm's maximum sustained winds were clocked on Wednesday at 185 km per hour, down from a peak of 225 km per hour a day earlier before Florence was downgraded from a Category 4 on the five-step Saffir-Simpson scale of wind strength.

Jennifer Gray, CNN meteorologist, commented on the hurricane, saying: "Regardless, this is bad news for the North Carolina coast as well as the SC coast, and all the points inland". SC has an open date October 20 and also could play on December 1 if it does not qualify for the SEC Championship Game.
