FEMA: Florence will be “a Mike Tyson punch to the Carolina coast.”

Hurricane Florence - updated Wednesday 2018-09-12 9am ETJeff Byard, FEMA’s associate administrator for its response and recovery office, warned of the danger of Hurricane Florence as the storm surges toward the Carolinas.

“This is going to be a Mike Tyson punch to the Carolina coast,” he said.

Byard pleaded with residents to evacuate not only for their safety, but also for the safety of first responders.

Steve Goldstein with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration says that with Florence’s slow movement, parts of coastal North and South Carolina could experience hurricane-force winds and hurricane conditions for 24 hours or more.

Once the storm moves inland, the threat of inland flooding increases, with 15 to 25 inches of rain forecast, and up to 40 inches near the exact center of Florence, Goldstein said.

Jeff Byard: “Today is the last good day to evacuate.”
