East Coast Evacuates as Florence Approaches
Written by Staff Writer on September 12, 2018
The onset of scattered and isolated thunderstorms in the San Antonio and surrounding area continues as this year’s Atlantic hurricane season reached mid-peak Monday with Category Four Hurricane Florence barreling towards the East Coast.
The busiest time period runs eight weeks from mid-August to mid-October while the season officially runs from June 1st to November 30th.
More than one million people along the U.S. East Coast have been ordered to evacuate before Florence is predicted to make landfall somewhere over the Carolinas on Thursday.
“All the predictions are when it gets to the coast it’ll be moving slow so it’ll be dumping rain on us and North Carolina for a long time,” South Carolina Gov. Henry McMaster told “Good Morning America” on Tuesday.
Reports are predicting that; “this hurricane is bigger than Hurricane Hugo, which we had back in 1989.”
