The Massive Storm Will Reek Havoc on The Coast, and Potentially Cost Billions

The North and South Carolina coastlines are getting ready for the huge, and in all probability destructive hurricane Florence. The storm is projected to be a category 4 hurricane when it makes landfall sometime on Friday, and will most likely land somewhere along the southern end of North Carolina. This means that much of South Carolina will be in the direct path of the intense winds and storm surge.

The hurricane took a turn towards the south on Wednesday, shifting the probable landfall of the storm to be much lower than first thought, but the eventual location of the initial strike on the coast will be open for speculation until it actually hits. In general, the entire coasts of North and South Carolina will see massive amounts of wind, rain, and could run into the trouble of potentially life threatening floods.

This is one of the biggest hurricanes in years to directly move towards the Carolinas, and will affect the coastline as far up as Virginia, and as far south as Georgia. Rain, wind, and swells will affect an even larger area, for the better part of three days as it approaches.

The storm will likely be extremely costly, as well. Some estimates state that the overall combined cost for states could be as high as $170 billion, for damages, property loss, and clean up. Over a million people have evacuated the coast, and many more are in the process of leaving.
