As of Thursday morning, Hurricane Florence is a dangerous Category 2 storm. The storm could stall upon reaching the U.S. mainland and make a slight turn southward once it hits the Carolinas, according to Fox News senior meteorologist Janice Dean.
"On the forecast track, the center of Florence will approach the coasts of North and South Carolina later [Thursday], then move near or over the coast of southern North Carolina and eastern South Carolina in the hurricane warning area tonight and Friday. A slow motion over eastern South Carolina is forecast Friday night through Saturday night," the NHC said.
Early Wednesday the storm was predicted to stall along the southeastern coast when it makes landfall Thursday. North Carolina, South Carolina and Georgia coasts could experience prolonged hurricane-force winds and rain.
This storm could be a “major flooding event,” Dean said.
