Hurricane Florence is Getting More Closure to US Coast

Wild Hurricane Florence has come on a middle point towards the East Coastal region. With every passing moment, it is getting more closure to the US coast through the expansion in size and becoming more ferocious in strength. According to its wild nature, it is rated as “ Extremely Dangerous” Category 4 hurricane. Calamitous flooding and violent wind are becoming more strong in the eastern Carolinas in the North of Charleston where the alert of the devastating hurricane was issued on Tuesday.

The National Hurricane Center has sent the triple alert to the entire region of Carolinas and Virginia:

“ A life-threatening storm surge at the coast- a rise in ocean water over normally dry land.  ”

“Life-threatening freshwater flooding from a prolonged and exceptionally heavy rainfall event from the coast to interior sections. ”

“ Damaging hurricane-force winds at the coast and some distance inland.”

As per the prediction, this devastating flooding can be worse than the previous ruinous effect of Hurricane Matthew in 2016.

Around 1.5 million people have been alerted to move out from their residential places in the coastal area to free themselves from the destructive rage of this wild storm, violent wings and rise of the surge which have the power to replace any normal dry land below the 10 feet of water.

The Hurricane Center said, “All interests from South Carolina into the Mid-Atlantic region should ensure they have their hurricane plan in replace and follow any advice given by local officials. ”

The terrifying storm has forced to close more than 100 schools throughout the entire region. The continuous stormy weather along with heavy rainfall has showcased its devastating power. Therefore, at Chapel Hill, the University of North Carolina, Duke and State Universities have already suspended regular classes till the weekend for avoiding the outrage of the frightening Hurricane.  Volvo, as well as Boeing, has been forced to shut down their manufacturing unit in the Charleston factories due to this devastating weather caused by Hurricane.

The simultaneous effect of continuous heavy rain and wild wind in a forward motion will propel an immense amount of water onshore which will terribly make landfall. The extreme surge of water due to the bulldozer effect of wild wind can be transformed into high tide up to 13 feet.
