With Hurricane Florence churning off the coast of the Carolinas right as its imminent landfall fast approaches, it’s time for a hurricane open thread!
As of right now, Florence is a category 2 hurricane and it’s expected to stay that way until landfall late tonight and in the morning:
A more detailed look at the Hurricane track shows landfall at Wilmington with the eye then going through South Carolina before heading north:
The eye makes landfall, according to this map, at 8am tomorrow morning.
If you haven’t yet, you should check out NOAA’s GOES East image viewer of the hurricane. There are brilliant images like this one on the first GeoColor links:

Below are some live streams I found on youtube to keep you up-to-date on the hurricane. I hope some of them are helpful:
