Authorities, including President Trump and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), are urging residents in the Carolinas as well as parts of Virginia and Georgia to evacuate as the storm continues its path.

As of 2 p.m. Wednesday, the Category 4 storm was about 435 miles southeast of Wilmington, N.C., and moving northwest at about 16 mph. It is poised to slow to a crawl there and then drift to the southwest, unloading disastrous amounts of rain.

The category three storm is ploughing towards the east coast and is due to make landfall in SC early on Friday morning.

People fleeing coastal North and SC clogged highways early Wednesday as Florence bore down on the coast for a direct hit in a low-lying region dense with beachfront vacation homes.

"Watch out, America! #HurricaneFlorence is so enormous, we could only capture her with a super wide-angle lens", German astronaut Alexander Gerst tweeted this morning, along with the photos to prove it. "Get prepared on the East Coast, this is a no-kidding nightmare coming for you".

A tropical storm watch is in effect for north of the North Carolina/Virginia border to Cape Charles Light, VA, and for Chesapeake Bay south of New Point Comfort. The center said the waves were measured by satellite.

"The National Hurricane Center forecasts additional strengthening for Florence before it reaches the coastline of North Carolina and SC early Friday, Sept. 14", NASA wrote in the description of the video.

The hurricane could also produce heavy and excessive rainfall - up to 40 inches in isolated areas in the Carolinas and anywhere between 6 to 12 inches elsewhere in the Appalachians and Mid-Atlantic region. The hurricane center said Florence will approach the coast Friday and linger for a while before rolling ashore.

A hurricane warning along with a storm surge warning has been issued for Wilmington and surrounding areas.

As of Tuesday, more than 1.7 million people in the Carolinas and Virginia were warned to clear out. All three states ordered mass evacuations along the coast.

The East Coast isn't the only area facing the brunt of a storm. The trend is "exceptionally bad news", said University of Miami hurricane researcher Brian McNoldy, since it "smears a landfall out over hundreds of miles of coastline, most notably the storm surge".
