It is expected to reach the Carolinas early overnight Thursday, and more than a million people have been ordered to evacuate coastal areas.

Forecasters with the National Hurricane Center said that while Florence is expected to slow down considerably by late Thursday and into Friday, it will still be an "extremely unsafe major hurricane" when it makes landfall.

As Hurricane Florence closes in on Wilmington, North Carolina (where it's projected to make landfall tomorrow), the ISS managed to capture a stunning video of the hurricane's titanic mass moving across the Atlantic as the station flew 255 miles (410 kilometers) overhead.

North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper warned residents that time was running out to seek safety from what he called a "once in a lifetime" storm.

Florence could become the most powerful storm to hit the area in more than 60 years if its intensity continues. North and SC and Virginia declared emergencies earlier in the week.

The schools made the announcement Wednesday, citing the forecast for deteriorating weather conditions and Virginia's state of emergency declaration. "He lives in North Carolina".

"Historical rainfall amounts from #Florence are possible with UNPRECEDENTED flooding", according to the National Weather Service office in Newport and Morehead City, on North Carolina's coast. Storm surge warnings indicate a danger of life-threatening inundation from rising water moving inland from the coastline during the coming 36 hours.

Those warily staring at Florence grasp in contrast it to Hurricanes Fran and Hugo, which pummeled North Carolina and SC, respectively, more than two decades ago.

A hurricane warning was issued for South Santee River, SC, north to Duck, NC, and the Albemarle and Pamlico Sounds.

"A lot of our storefronts are boarded up", said Lynn Davis, town manager for Belhaven which sits at sea level in northeastern North Carolina.

Folks living in Charleston, South Carolina, have already started preparing for Florence.

The National Hurricane Center predicted that Florence's outer bands - and tropical-force winds - would begin to arrive Thursday morning, with the rest of the storm plowing through the area through the weekend. He rescinded the order for Beaufort and Jasper counties Tuesday morning, but officials have not ruled out the possibility of another evacuation order.

The eastbound lanes of several major highways have been shut down to allow for a smooth flow of traffic inland.

While the hurricane is likely to start weakening by late Thursday, Florence is still forecast to be an extremely risky major hurricane when it nears the USA coast, the NHC said.

The storm may stall over SC and North Carolina, dump several feet of rain, and trigger widespread flooding.

Strong winds, storm surge, and flash flooding are major concerns for Florence and rains in excess of 20 inches can be expected in the Cape Fear region.

The impact of storm surge on the coast will depend on whether the storm's arrival coincides with high tide. Isaac could bring heavy rainfall to Martinique, Dominica and Guadeloupe.

For anyone needing a place to stay to escape the hurricane, both North Carolina and SC are updating their lists of emergency shelters.

Florence is the most unsafe of three tropical systems in the Atlantic.
