Trump tweeted about the danger to Georgia Wednesday, saying, "Hurricane Florence may now be dipping a bit south and hitting a portion of the Great State of Georgia".
The video was recently captured by scientists with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) aboard a specialized four-engine aircraft.
And Florence remained capable of unleashing rain-fueled catastrophic flooding of rivers and low-lying areas across a wide region.
An expat Island woman and her family are hunkering down as the powerful Hurricane Florence lurches toward the Carolina coast.
Florence is also expected to lose speed and "hover" once it reaches the coast, which will intensify the impacts of its heavy rainfall and storm surges, Ken Graham, director of the National Hurricane Center (NHC), said in a Facebook Live update earlier today.
People fleeing coastal North and SC clogged highways Wednesday as Florence bore down on the coast for a direct hit in a low-lying region dense with beachfront vacation homes. Rather than pushing up toward western Virginia, the storm's center is now predicted to move across the middle of SC.
As of 11 p.m., the storm was centered 280 miles east southeast of Wilmington, North Carolina, and was moving northwest at 17 mph.
"All interests from SC into the Mid-Atlantic region should ensure they have their hurricane plan in place and follow any advice given by local officials", the Hurricane Center said.
A National Weather Service forecaster has said it will be the "storm of a lifetime" for parts of the Carolina coast. Its maximum sustained winds have dropped slightly to 110 miles per hour.
There have been warnings that any flooding of hog manure pits, coal ash dumps and other industrial sites could have a lasting effect on communities, with tainted water possibly washing into homes and drinking supplies.
Another commenter said: 'That hurricane better be taking me to dinner first'.
Hurricane conditions will likely hit on Friday, but tropical storm conditions will arrive on Thursday, according to the hurricane center.
More than 1.7 million people were warned to evacuate and get out of the way of the "life-threatening" storm's path.
Trump has urged those in the path of Hurricane Florence to act now to 'get out of its way'. In South Carolina, close to the Georgia line, Beaufort County emergency chief Neil Baxley told residents they need to prepare again for the worst just in case.
