Florence weakened slightly to a Category 3 storm on a five-step scale but had maximum sustained winds of 201 km/h as of Wednesday afternoon, down from 210 km/h earlier in the day. As the evacuation orders throughout the region were about to take effect, he told us once his boat is secured - as secure as anything can be in a storm like Florence - he's heading a few miles inland, where he is hoping for the best.
