The Category 4 Hurricane, Florence, is estimated to start affecting North Carolina by 8 A.M. (EST) Thursday. Meteorologists predict medium to high flash flooding and have issued an evacuation warning to residents of the southeastern seaboard. The National Hurricane Center have also warned that hurricane could even become stronger and have worse consequences than what they have predicted. Storm surges along the coast are estimated to bring the coastline up 15 feet.

Florence could stay until Saturday, but the effects it leaves could be felt for months in the Carolinas and Georgia. Officials estimate it could cost over $170.2 billion dollars just to repair the homes that may be destroyed by the hurricane. More than a million people have been told to evacuate the states and coastline cities.
