Hurricane Florence is going to be bad, guys. Take it from someone who has watched these things his whole life. This is going to be horrible.
Having said that the weather weenies are trying to give everyone the worst case scenario, and maybe they are over-blown maybe not. This is a very dangerous storm.
They're still not sure where this storm is going after she stalls, and the next 24 hours should prove definitive. She's a bad one, and the Carolinas are in for a whupping.
