Communities along the Carolina coast buttoned up against the onslaught of Hurricane Florence as forecasters today warned that the monstrous storm could hesitate just offshore for days ‑ punishing a longer stretch of coastline harder than previously feared ‑ before pushing inland over the weekend.

In a videotaped message from the White House US President Donald Trump said the government is fully prepared for Florence but urged people to "get out of its way."

The National Hurricane Center's projected track had Florence hovering off the southern North Carolina coast by midday Friday until landfall early Sunday or so, about a day later than previously expected.

As at 3am, Florence, a potentially catastrophic Category 4 storm, was centred 785km southeast of Wilmington, North Carolina, moving at 24km and it packing winds of 215kmh.
