"To the incredible citizens of North Carolina, South Carolina and the entire East Coast - the storm looks very bad!" tweeted the president. If Florence slows to a crawl just off the coast, it could bring torrential rain to the Appalachian mountains and as far away as West Virginia, causing flash floods, mudslides and other unsafe conditions. Forecasters predict it will make landfall sometime late Thursday. "And when it hits the Gulf Stream in warmer water, it's going to [intensify] even more".

South Carolina's Governor Henry McMaster has told people they need to leave the area by noon on Tuesday. He estimated that about 1 million people will be affected by the order, including residents and visitors. "This might be inconvenient for some people but we can worry about the inconvenience later". He added that the disruption was worth the effort to save lives. "Storm Surge and Hurricane watches are likely be issued for portions of these areas on Tuesday", said the NHC.

Public schools and state agencies in 26 counties will also be closed Tuesday until further notice, authorities said. He also noted that he'd been in contact with the governors of South Carolina, North Carolina and Virginia to assure them the federal government was available to provide assistance.
