Florence against Carolina: as Americans prepare for a brunt of the disaster


The powerful hurricane approaches east coast of the USA. According to Bloomberg, the possible damage can be about 30 billion dollars of the Photo: Carlo Allegri/Reuters of Florence risks to become the worst natural cataclysm in modern history of Northern Carolina and the next states. On Sunday, September 9, it was the storm of the first category, and on Monday it has turned into a hurricane of the third category on a five-point scale. As expected, he will fall upon states Northern and South Carolina and Virginia within the next days. In states on which it is moved Florence have already introduced emergency mode. In South and Northern Carolina evacuation of inhabitants of coastal areas — only more than one and a half million people is announced. Those to whom is where to go the authorities urge to leave. That who has no place to go, promise places in shelters — special bunkers. The correspondent of MSNBC has talked in a resort of Myrtle Scourge in Northern Carolina to the man who in a supermarket has loaded two carts bottles with water: "I live in seven quarters from here, is close in water. We will meet all family and we will decide what to do if the hurricane reaches us. Someone goes to the North, someone — to the South. While we speak, I am called by family — the daughter, the wife, friends. I have endured Sandie on the beach in one and a half quarters from me, and nothing. Someone has suffered, someone isn't present. But I am sure that there will be strong wind and a rain, people have to steer clear of the beach". Florence doesn't threaten Florida which is to the south, there everything is quiet, the local resident Evelina has told Business FM: "In comparison with last year when there was a hurricane "Irma", everything is absolutely quiet, nobody sweeps away anything from shelves of supermarkets, life goes on in a usual key, there are no terrible traffic jams, but both Carolina not so far from us, up the ocean coast, and there panic also goes large-scale evacuation". In hurricane epicenter the speed of wind exceeds 200 kilometers per hour. Florence will also bring heavy rains on east coast of the USA: only in Northern Carolina more than a meter of rainfall, plus an ocean wave which threatens to sweep away everything from a coastal strip is expected. Florence can become the most powerful hurricane which fell upon Northern and South Carolina for the last 60 years. He is already compared to the hurricane "Katrina" which in the 2005th has destroyed New Orleans, the leading expert of Phobos weather center Elena Volosyuk says: "By estimates of National Weather Service of the USA, the hurricane "Florence" really can be stronger, than Katrina, and because of it in a number of southeast states a state of emergency is declared. It would be desirable that he didn't become such destructive as Katrina or last year's Irma. Irma was the most killing Atlantic storm of 2017, it was even called a hurricane of decade". I haven't reached by Florence the USA yet, but Americans already count possible damage. According to Bloomberg, he can make about 30 billion dollars. To Katrina far: as reminds the agency, the hurricane which has fallen in the 2005th upon Louisiana I have managed
