Evacuations have been ordered as the US East Coast braces for Hurricane Florence ‑ in what may be the strongest storm to hit the region in decades.

South Carolina's governor ordered the evacuation of its entire coastline while North Carolina and Virginia have declared states of emergency.

Officials say Florence is now a category four storm with 195km/h winds, and gaining strength.

It is expected to strike the Carolinas by Friday.

The US National Hurricane Center says Florence has the makings of an "extremely dangerous" meteorological event.

It may bring catastrophic levels of rain and flooding to coastal and inland regions.

US President Donald Trump has cancelled plans for a rally on Saturday in Mississippi because of the hurricane.
