Hurricane Florence is a Category 4 storm headed straight for North and South Carolina, along with parts of Virginia. This storm is said to be one of the biggest storms to ever hit this part of the east coast and the wind speed is coming in at a whopping 140 miles per hour right towards the coast.

According to ABC News, the storm is set to make landfall early Friday between midnight and 5 a.m. 

This storm is projected to unload nearly one to two and a half feet of rain that could cause disastrous flooding inland and ruin the environment by washing over industrial waste sites and hog farms.

“This storm is a monster. It’s big and it’s vicious. It is an extremely, dangerous, life-threatening, historic hurricane,” North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper said.

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services declared a public health emergency in North Carolina and South Carolina effective since Tuesday of this week. In addition, highways are being closed going in towards the areas that are right in the line of the hurricane to ensure that no one goes right into the danger of this massive storm.

While most people in these regions have decided that it is a good idea to take their families and evacuate the area in order to keep everyone safe, there are a few people that do not want to leave their homes and are going to try and wait out this massive storm.
