Passengers heading to North Carolina prepare for hurricane

With Hurrican Florence on the way, millions of Americans have been warned to leave for higher ground or face the hurricane alone. 

According to the FAA, dozens of airports along the East Coast are closed because of Hurricane Florence. The hurricane is expected to make landfall on Friday morning around 1 a.m. The storm will sit on the coast of North Carolina potentially for days.

The good news is that Hurricane Florence is not considered a major hurricane anymore. It is now a Category 2. 

In North Carolina, storm surge and rainfall of as much as 40 inches is predicted to fall. In South Carolina, rainfall is expected to be about 20 to 30 inches, which still can cause flash flooding and river flooding.

The National Hurricane Center has said although Florence has weakened, it is still forecasted to be extremely dangerous when it hits the U.S. coast.
