Context>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
Hurricane Florence is now expected to slow down and turn south after making a roaring landfall along the East Coast, a forecast that could have dire consequences for South Carolina, meteorologists said Wednesday.

Florence is a mammoth, Category 4 storm with sustained winds of 130 mph. It is expected to reach the Carolinas early Friday , and more than a million people have been ordered to evacuate coastal areas.

"Latest models show a ridge building over eastern U.S. slowing down Florence near our coast, stalling, then moving into South Carolina," the National Weather Service in Wilmington, North Carolina said. "Impacts will still be felt far away from the center of storm, and uncertainty still exists regarding magnitude of impacts in our area."

The office warned that Florence "will likely be the storm of a lifetime for portions of the Carolina coast."
