Manure lagoons are about as pleasant as they sound-vast open-air ponds of manure located next to the many hog farms near the North Carolina coast.

NHC director Ken Graham with Wednesday report on hurricane Florence.

Life-threatening storm surge and rainfall are expected.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency warned that storm surge watches and warnings are in effect Wednesday for the entire North Carolina coast and parts of SC. "Surge-related flooding can vary greatly over short distances", the advisory said.

Category one hurricane Florence just hit land, according to the National Hurricane Center (NHC), with strong effects already being felt across the Carolinas.

There's going to be more flooding with this hurricane and storm all over the state we think than we've ever had before.

"This general motion, accompanied by a gradual decrease in forward speed, is expected through today".

"Even the rescuers can not stay there", he said.

He told Irish radio station RTE on September 2: "There is an open invitation to the US President to visit Ireland at any time". The Taoiseach's spokesperson was unable to confirm that the trip had been cancelled when reports broke earlier on Tuesday.

One climate model is predicting that as much as 11 trillion gallons of rain will fall on North Carolina in the coming week - an amount that's enough to fill the Empire State Building 40 times over.

It was set to inundate nearly all of North Carolina in several feet of water, State Governor Roy Cooper told a news conference, while National Weather Service forecaster Brandon Locklear predicted up to eight months of rain in two or three days.

The effects of Hurricane Florence have already arrived on the East Coast of the USA, where massive floods have already begun and as much asthe National Hurricane Center forecasts 40 inches of rain and 11 feet of flooding from the storm surge.

About 1.7 million people in the Carolinas and Virginia were warned to evacuate, but it's unclear how many did, officials said.

President Donald Trump has said protecting lives is his "absolute highest priority" and that the White House is standing by to offer affected states whatever help they ask for.

Once a Category 4 hurricane with winds of 140 miles per hour (225 kph), the hurricane was downgraded to a Category 1 on Thursday night.

"That's the second story of a house", North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper said Thursday morning. Hurricane-force winds extended 80 miles (130 kilometers) from its center, and tropical-storm-force winds up to 195 miles (315 kilometers).

"Its slow movement will allow rain to continue to pile up in areas from Jacksonville to Wilmington seeing as much as 10" to 20" of rainfall. If anything, we are more than likely going to have a power outage.

Police reportedly found a small amount of white powder at the house but did not find any drugs or paraphernalia on the scene. In multiple interviews Miller said he had started using drugs including cocaine and opiates when he was just 15 years old.

Florence's expected slowdown means a prolonged period near the coast, said the hurricane center's Joel Cline.

There is also a "slight" risk of tornadoes along the coastal region between Southport and Surf City, along with a "marginal" risk several miles inland, through Brunswick, New Hanover, and Pender counties, according to the National Weather Service. "We're about to be in the thick of it".

Hurricane Florence delivered a slow-motion assault to the coast of North Carolina early Friday, with catastrophic storm surge and torrential rains that will continue for days. And Florence remained capable of unleashing rain-fueled catastrophic flooding of rivers and low-lying areas across a wide region.

"It doesn't matter where you are", he said.

Florence weakens to a tropical storm by Sunday and a depression as it slowly drifts northwest into the Appalachians on Monday.

The storm made landfall at Wrightsville Beach at 7:15 a.m., with maximum sustained winds of 90 miles per hour, according to the National Hurricane Center.

Apple launches logic board fix program for iPhone 8
Past leaks had just said that Apple was wanting to call both OLED iPhones, i.e., the 5.8-inch and 6.5-inch gadgets, as iPhone Xs . It will be coming with a 6.1-inch screen on the front and low-priced and yet sturdy aluminium-based shell with glass on top.

WXII-TV reported that 150 people were waiting to be rescued from rising waters in the city New Bern. Water kills more people in hurricanes than wind, and he said it will still be an extremely risky storm for rain and storm surge. A mandatory evacuation order was issued for the area earlier this week. On Thursday morning, South 17th Street, usually teeming with commuter traffic by 6:30 a.m., was almost devoid of cars. On Wednesday, officials said some of those shelters were at capacity, but in a statement early Thursday, county officials said they were "able to mobilize additional resources to accommodate the need for shelter space".
