Hurricane Florence is forecast to stall as it meets landfall up to the North Carolina coast and turn slowly left -- a development that would smash the Tar Heel State with life-threatening storm surge, huge winds and incredible amounts of rain while also endangering a large portion of South Carolina.
"This is not going to be a glancing blow. ... This is going to be a Mike Tyson punch to the Carolina coast" says Federal Emergency Management Agency associate administrator Jeff Byard
Florence is a very strong storm with winds of 125 mph. It is predicted to deliver tropical-storm-force winds by noon Thursday to North Carolina's coast, and hurricane-force winds by late Thursday or early Friday morning. Stay weather AWARE with 95.3 The Bear!
