Hurricane Florence lumbered ashore in North Carolina with howling 145 km/h winds and terrifying storm surge early Friday, splintering buildings and trapping hundreds of people in high water as it settled in for what could be an extraordinarily destructive drenching.
More than 60 people had to be pulled from a collapsing cinderblock motel at the height of the storm. Hundreds more had to be rescued elsewhere from rising waters. Others could only wait and hope someone would come for them. “WE ARE COMING TO GET YOU,” the city of New Bern tweeted around 2 a.m. “You may need to move up to the second story, or to your attic, but WE ARE COMING TO GET YOU.”

Carolinas and neighbor Georgia were threatened by Category 4 hurricane downgraded category 1 hurricane Florence on 14 September , 2018. The hurricane has made landfall in North Carolina bringing rain and floods. It may be precisely relevant to mention here this Vedic astrology writer’s alerts for more care and appropriate strategy against hurricanes , storms and massive floods in States like Georgia and nearby in the US during July -August which may continue in September also , through alerts of 11 October , 2017 in article - “ Astrological probable alerts for the United States in 2018” - published in monthly Webzine of Wisdom Magazine from the US at wisdom-magazine.com/Article.aspx/4647/ on 1 December , 2017. The following analysis of the alert seen in the light of actual happenings on the ground looks to be called for. Timing : - It was indicated that July-August in 2018 are the months related to hurricanes , storms , massive floods etc in States aforesaid. While dealing with September to December 2018 , it was added :- “ While there looks to be some respite from the stresses and strains described here before for July-August in 2018 , the painful aspect of the year 2018 appears to be that once certain issues or problems arise , these donot disappear sooner , easily or completely , taking somewhat longer period to go stock and barrel or be sluggish in pace while bowing out”. So the suggestion was clear that impacts of July-August do not end there and could spill over longer into September as well. States likely to be impacted : - The text reads as : “ Some States which may keep a watch on any developing such scenario in one or more vulnerable States or regions like Georgia , New Jersey.” Carolinas and Georgia happen to be in the vicinity geographically and some of other States like New Jersey , New York described in the alert were mentioned in the news to be in the path of the hurricane Florence. So it can be said that path of the hurricane was also indicated matching that is being seen on the ground on 14 September and after in 2018. There is another point which may also be mentioned here. According to news reports , two nuclear plants located in the expected path of the hurricane had to be closed for the time being. This writer had , while scripting the period of July-August with impact in September in year 2018 , alerted of watch on any apprehended leakage of nuclear energy during the period. So that part of the alert has also been meaningful.
