Canadians’ thoughts are with everyone affected by Florence tonight - and we hope people in its path are spared the worst. My deepest sympathies to all those who’ve lost a loved one. Your friends & neighbours are with you.
Over 1,150 @FEMA Urban Search and Rescue personnel are integrated with state & local teams in NC, SC, & VA to help with rescues after #Florence. The teams came from all over the country this week, traveling long distances with equipment & K-9 partners to arrive before the storm. https://t.co/w5WUKE9CTU
This is Bologna. She was taken in by @lostdogrescue ahead of Hurricane Florence. You can find ways to help them save more animals by clicking below. I’ve also attached images of shelters/rescues that could use donations, fosters, and any love you can give
Mr. President, I suggest you focus on the people of North Carolina who are bearing the brunt of Hurricane Florence right now, and suspend your narcissistic paranoid thin-skinned self-absorbed rants until the storm subsides. Just a suggestion. https://t.co/Ro3T7pleGQ
For the second day in a row, with plenty of news on Hurricane Florence, the Kavanaugh nomination and the Manafort plea, Trump remains completely out of sight and the White House holds no press briefing.
Trump Praised Manafort for "staying strong" "being brave"
TRUMP will soon be calling him A FLIPPER, A RAT.
TRUMP doesn't give a RATS ASS about lives lost & damage done in HURRICANE FLORENCE right now.
He's worried ONLY ABOUT HIMSELF IN AN ORANGE JUMPSUIT.
As of 5PM #Florence is now a tropical storm, still causing life-threatening conditions to eastern parts of North and South Carolina. Falling trees and power lines, extreme flash flooding, and storm surge in rivers and inlets continue through tonight.
UPDATE: At least 4 people have been killed by Hurricane Florence.
• A mother and infant were killed after a tree collapsed on their home
• A person was killed while plugging in a generator
• A woman died of an apparent heart attack
Yet another #Florence tropical squall is slamming us at the intracoastal in Wilmington, NC. We've been in these on and off for 24 hours! Nearly 70 tropical storms and hurricanes and I've never seen this magnitude of wind and rain last this long.

Trump is cursing Hurricane Florence right now - not for its destruction but for the fact that it’s keeping him from Tweeting about how innocent he is. Doppler radar is showing a Tweet Storm on the horizon.
More than 165,000 households are without power across SC due to #Florence. If you lose power try to use flashlights instead of candles. Never use a generator inside your home or garage. Keep it more than 20 feet away from your home, doors, and windows for safety. #scwx #sctweets
Several of South Carolina’s prisons in counties that fell within the mandatory evacuation zone for Hurricane Florence have not been evacuated, and inmates are bracing for the worst: https://t.co/1L2pUscj2T
Reportero de un canal climático hace una nota en vivo, en una lucha dramática por mantenerse en pie ante los fuertes vientos de Florence... pero su heroísmo queda en entredicho cuando dos personas pasan caminando por su espalda sin ninguna dificultad.
We might be spared the worst of Hurricane Florence, but there is still a high likelihood for falling branches, trees and power lines. Please stay inside and exercise caution at all times — particularly after it gets dark. The latest from Alert Carolina: https://t.co/IdWd7qrXu2
While most people are fleeing the rising flood waters in North Carolina, volunteers with the Cajun Navy are headed TOWARD the danger to help rescue stranded Carolinians. Bless them for their efforts. #TropicalStormFlorence #CajunNavy
Everyone who does not understand uncertainty in forecasting hurricanes, watch this to see how track and uncertainty change through time during the lead-up to a landfall.
This is #Florence forecast tracks from ECMWF (euro) since Wed 5 Sep (9 days before landfall).
We will be closed to the public tomorrow, Saturday, Sept. 15, 2018, due to inclement weather. We apologize for any inconvenience.
Please join us in praying for those who have been and will be affected by Hurricane Florence.
We found a working and open gas station, so we can now keep rolling in StormTrack4! @wjxt4
For those who need #gas it’s called Markette/Shell on U.S. 17 in Murrells Inlet, SC just of Myrtle Beach. ⛽️ #Florence
'This storm is deadly and we know we are days away from an ending': Nearly 56-km wide Florence, now a tropical storm, slowly weakens as it lingers over South Carolina.

If you had the means to evacuate, but not the brains, DO NOT PUT OUR AMAZING 1ST RESPONDERS' LIVES AT RISK AGAIN. Knowing Trump, he'll pass some law preventing your rescue next time. #Florence #TheMoreYouKnow
Why Counting The Number Of Dead After A Hurricane — Or Any Disaster — Matters: “This is inherently political because the scale of the disaster will determine what lessons we learn from it,” an expert says as Florence's toll begins to be measured. https://t.co/K6pdxp8I7w
