And even from space, Hurricane Florence looks terrifying.

Ocean City will begin to experience lingering effects of the weakening category three storm, including wind, rain and tidal flooding, as early as Thursday night, September 13, and into Saturday, September 15. It's big and vicious.

Hurricane Florence is continuing to move west-northwest and is still forecast to hit North Carolina and SC, bringing destructive storm surge, rains, and wind.

Mr Long said the hurricane would be a "devastating event" and urged Americans to evacuate if they've been asked to leave their homes.

Duke Energy Corp expected between 25 percent and 75 percent of its 4 million customers would lose power in the Carolinas. Executives in North and South Carolina, Virginia, Maryland and the District of Columbia declared emergencies earlier in the week.

Officials in New Hanover County, which includes Wilmington, have stockpiled enough food and water for 60,000 people for four days, along with more than 28,000 tarps. "But no matter how bad it's going to be, it will pass and our job will be to rebuild this community together".
