Hurricane Florence is the category 4 storm with the potential to bring devastation to the eastern side of America.
Emergency officials in the USA state of North Carolina are warning people to finish their preparations for Hurricane Florence on Wednesday before the storm arrives with life-threatening rainfall, storm surge and wind.
The governors of Virginia, Maryland, North Carolina and SC have also declared a state of emergency for their states in preparation for Florence's arrival.

In Charleston, South Carolina, some residents were making preparations to leave Tuesday while others planned to ride out the storm.
While some of the computer forecasting models conflicted, the latest projections more or less showed the storm shifting southward and westward in a way that suddenly put more of SC in danger and imperiled Georgia, too. Upon its arrival, the National Hurricane Center projects that Florence could drop anywhere from 20-40 inches of rain along the Carolina coast.
Speaking at a news conference, the official said the hurricane was expected to spread out into the Central Appalachian mountains, the Tennessee Valley, and southeastern parts of the USA after Saturday.
Nathan Deal (R) on Wednesday declared a state of emergency for the entire state as Hurricane Florence takes aim at the southeast. He underlined the point that even if you call 911, there is a chance rescue services may not be able to get to you. 'It is big and it is vicious'. This system, when it gets to the coast, is only going to be moving about three miles per hour. "Don't bet your life on riding out a monster".
The longer the storm stalls near the coast, the more precipitation it will be able to pull from the Atlantic and dump inland.
In a video message on Wednesday, President Trump said that people shouldn't "play games" with the storm and that the federal government is ready to assist.
Experts say this could be the strongest storm to hit the Carolina coast in more than 60 years. "It's going to destroy homes", said Jeff Byard, an official at the Federal Emergency Management Agency.
President Donald Trump has declared states of emergency for North and SC and Virginia, saying the USA government is "absolutely, totally prepared" for Florence.
