With Hurricane Florence bearing down on the eastern seaboard of the United States, a number of organizations and news outlets have set up live video feeds along the coast to capture the storm making landfall. Those video feeds are included below.
According to the National Weather Service, the danger from the storm now is not from the winds, even though they are running in excess of 100 miles per hour. Even at that speed, it is believed many structures can withstand being destroyed.
The true danger, experts say, comes as Hurricane Florence has slowed down as it makes landfall. That means more rainfall dumped on an already vulnerable coastline, and worse flooding.
North Carolina is taking the early brunt of the storm Thursday afternoon, as the outer bands of the hurricane hit the barrier islands and overwhelm the many rivers near the coast.
Storm surges – the rising level of flooding – could easily put many homes underwater quickly.
Hurricane Florence is currently over 15,000 square miles in size – bigger than the states of Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and Connecticut combined.
A reporter from CNN got video of the early impact of the storm has it began to move ashore.
