"This will likely be the storm of a lifetime for portions of the Carolina coast", it said early Wednesday. A monster. A once-in-a-lifetime storm. It's big and it's vicious.

"We try to talk about high risk and uncertainties and convey those uncertainties to the public and then speak in terms of what impacts you can expect potentially in your area that are a threat to your life or your property", he said Wednesday, as forecasters tracked the path of Hurricane Florence heading toward the East Coast.

"Please be prepared, be careful and be SAFE", he wrote.

The president said: "The safety of American people is my absolute highest priority. We are ready. We're as ready as anybody's ever been".

"We hope to have something left when we get home", she said.

He said electric power could be out for weeks.

At 200 PM EDT (1800 UTC), reports from An Air Force Reserve reconnaissance aircraft indicate that the center of the eye of Hurricane Florence was located near latitude 30.4 North, longitude 71.8 West. Florence is moving toward the northwest near 16 miles per hour (26 km/h) and this general motion, accompanied by a gradual decrease in forward speed, is expected to through Saturday.

McMaster had ordered evacuations for all coastal SC counties on Monday.

As of Tuesday, more than 1.7 million people in the Carolinas and Virginia were warned to clear out. "We're liable to have a whole lot of flooding". "The cancellation of the game will free up hotel rooms across the Midlands for evacuees and allows emergency personnel to be utilized in areas impacted by the storm".

Florence weakened slightly to a Category 3 hurricane on Wednesday.

Georgia Governor Nathan Deal, concerned the storm would bring its devastation south, issued an emergency declaration for all 159 counties in his state. The hurricane center also adjusted its projected track but stayed north of what most computer models were showing to prove some continuity with past forecasts.

Trump says his administration has been in "close contact" with the state and local governments soon to be impacted by the massive storm. "It's going to happen".

However, he reiterated that just that minor factor alone is not enough to cause the cyclone to make major changes. Shelters in the city were filling and some people were being bused inland to Raleigh, even though some residents there were told they might have to evacuate. "But no matter how bad it's going to be, it will pass and our job will be to rebuild this community together".

On another barrier island just below the Bogue Banks, Steve Harrigan reported live from North Topsail Beach, where visitors and residents were largely heeding warnings from Gov. Roy Cooper (D-N.C.) to evacuate.
