In North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia and Georgia, millions of residents are bracing for today’s arrival of Hurricane Florence, which meteorologists are warning could unleash life-threatening storm surges and historic flooding across a wide swath of the East Coast. While Florence has now been downgraded to a Category 2 hurricane, experts are still warning its impact could be “catastrophic.” This is North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper.

Gov. Roy Cooper: “This monster of a storm is not one to ride out. When you’re looking at a storm surge of this magnitude, where the National Weather Service says that the damage is going to be unbelievable, and that they cannot emphasize that enough, we know that that’s a message that we should listen to.”
