More Than 1 Million Ordered to Evacuate as Florence Barrels Toward East Coast

HeadlineSep 11, 2018
H2 florence

The enormous Category 4 Hurricane Florence is barreling toward the East Coast, with 1.5 million people across Virginia, North Carolina and South Carolina facing evacuation orders. The National Hurricane Center is warning of widespread flooding and a possible “life-threatening storm surge.” This is North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper.

Gov. Roy Cooper: “The forecast places North Carolina in the bullseye of Hurricane Florence, and the storm is rapidly getting stronger. When weather forecasters tell us 'life-threatening,' we know that it is serious.”

We’ll have more on Hurricane Florence and the links between hurricanes and climate change after headlines.
