Hurricane Florence Web
Wednesday afternoon, it looked like Hurricane Florence would make landfall somewhere near Wilmington, N.C., but then dip slightly south and make its way across South Carolina. As of noon Wednesday, the National Weather Service listed Hurricane Florence as a Category 4 hurricane approximately 485 miles southeast of Wilmington, N.C., with wind speeds at 130 mph, gusting to 160 mph, and moving to the northwest at 15 mph. Landfall times were getting difficult to predict, but Florence could hit the Wilmington area by Saturday morning.
