As Hurricane Florence barreled across the Atlantic towards the East Coast, researchers were keeping a close watch. It was moving north at 21 miles per hour. Mandatory evacuations have been issued for much of the SC and North Carolina coastline.

Helene started Thursday as a Category 2 hurricane, but has since lost wind speed. This could result in flash flooding over low-lying and flood-prone areas.

The tropics are still looking busy Friday as Hurricane Florence pounds the Carolinas and other systems continue swirling in the Atlantic Ocean.

Preparing for the worst, about 9,700 National Guard troops and civilians were deployed with high-water vehicles, helicopters and boats that could be used to pluck people from the floodwaters.
