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.

"Also, most storms coming into the Carolinas tend to move northward, and this storm looks like it's going to stall over the region and potentially bring tremendous life-threatening flooding".

A storm as big as Hurricane Florence will hit with a "one-two punch" deluge of water, Erik Salna, the associate director of the International Hurricane Research Center at Florida International University, says. Then come the torrents of rain. Florence could be the worst hurricane to hit the Carolinas in over 60 years since category 4 hurricane "Hazel" struck in 1954.

Larger hurricanes typically bring much higher storm surges, historically the deadliest threat from hurricanes, because a larger span of winds can push more water ashore.

More than 1.5 million people have been ordered to evacuate along 300 miles of coastline.

"The bottom line if you wait, it's too late", he said. Officials didn't reveal exactly which institutions would be evacuated due to security concerns, but said evacuated prisoners would get a free phone call to notify loved ones. "What is flooding going to do to our home, our city?"

Hurricane Florence is forecast to soon slam the coasts of North and SC and numerous stars of Bravo's Southern Charm are getting the heck outta Charleston.

Almost 1000 prisoners in SC will not be moved from their cells, despite a mandatory evacuation order in the area.

The Category 4 storm is located 905 miles (1456 km) east of Cape Fear, North Carolina and has maximum wind speeds of 130 mph (209 km/h), according to the National Hurricane Center. Salna predicts it could rise as high as 15 feet. "I encourage Georgians to be prepared for the inland effects of the storm as well as the ensuing storm surge in coastal areas".

Moving and storage company U-Haul will offer 30 days of free storage at its facilities across the Carolinas and Virginia as Hurricane Florence begins to bear down on the U.S. East Coast.

Several inches of rain will fall across the state.

As for travelers, airlines serving destinations in Florence's projected path have started waiving change fees and are expecting widespread delays and cancellations. The National Hurricane Center says such massive rainfall could produce "catastrophic flash flooding and significant river flooding".

In addition to wind-driven storm surges of seawater, Florence could dump up to 35 inches (89 cm) in some spots as it moves inland, forecasters said.
