Hurricane Florence: US braces as major storm approaches

The Carolinas and other parts of the US are bracing themselves for a “life-threatening” hurricane due to make landfall on Thursday.


FCO issues advice on approaching US hurricane

North and South Carolina are predicted to receive the full force of Hurricane Florence on Thursday morning, with coastal Georgia and Virginia also likely to suffer damage. Florence is currently a Category Four storm, with winds of around 140mph.


Evacuations have begun from coastal areas, with the National Hurricane Center warning: “Florence is expected to be an extremely dangerous major hurricane through Thursday.”


The UK Foreign Office has also issued a travel advisory. It says: “Follow the advice of local authorities in North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia and Virginia, including any evacuation orders and monitor news and social media for more information.”


American Airlines’ flights from Heathrow to Raleigh/Durham were departing as normal on Tuesday.
