The forecast for Hurricane Florence continues to grow more grim by the moment with forecasters predicting a prolonged event for the Carolinas.

 

Computer models take Florence straight to the Carolina coastline, but then they differ a little bit on where it will make landfall.

FOX 13 meteorologist Dave Osterberg says “A Category 4 storm making landfall in the Carolinas could produce a 15- to 20-foot storm surge.”

Once Florence moves inland, there will be another problem. It will most likely stall. That could mean prolonged rains and flooding.

 

Is FEMA ready for the challenge ahead with this monster storm approaching the eastern seaboard?
