We are still talking about the impacts of Hurricane Florence. Flooding still a major issue and even more flooding is expected in parts of North and South Carolina. Wilmington is still basically an island. Roads continue to be impassable...including parts of I-95.
President Trump made a stop in the Carolinas this week. From hugging a kid that asked for a hug...to congratulating a guy on his new boat...to letting us know (in official weather terms) that Hurricane Florence was "one of the wettest we've ever seen, from the standpoint of water" Check out a recap of the President's Trip to the Carolinas HERE.

Anyway...It seems like we have been talking about Hurricane Florence for a long time. Turns out...IT HAS BEEN A LONG TIME!
Check out this animation of the ENTIRE Lifespan of Hurricane Florence that started as a tropical wave moving off the west coast of Africa. Pretty fascinating!
This is an animation of the entire life span of Hurricane #Florence since August 29, 2018 when Florence was a tropical wave moving off the west coast of Africa. Besides, Florence, you'll also see Gordon, Helene, Isaac and Joyce during this very active period in the Atlantic Basin pic.twitter.com/9r9V8JTvX9— NWS WPC (@NWSWPC) September 18, 2018
