Florence batters the Mid-Atlantic region
Florence made landfall Friday morning in North Carolina as a Category 1 Hurricane and was later downgraded to a tropical storm. The storm was packing winds near 100 miles per hour. The storm will slowly crawl across North Carolina this weekend and dump torrential amounts of rain. There will be significant destruction across the region from the strong, sustained winds. The main damage from the storm will be due the massive flooding that has already started.
