Hurricane Florence Updates

RALEIGH – We are one day closer to landfall of Hurricane Florence and the situation does not appear to be getting any better. Some models have shifted expected landfall a bit north, targeting the Crystal Coast with what could be a Category 4 storm on Thursday night or Friday morning.

Here are some updates from local news sources, with links to follow the live coverage.
