Early Friday morning, Hurricane Florence made landfall as a Cat-1 hurricane over the N Carolina coast. The storm’s eye passed right over Topsail Beach, that’s between Wilmington and Jacksonville, with 90 mph winds and heavy rain.


Flooding is a huge concern with this slow moving storm. Heavy rain continues to fall over the Carolinas along with a threat for continued storm surge.
