Hurricane Florence was downgraded from a category 4 to category 2 overnight, but it's the storm surge that could be a bigger concern.
The National Hurricane Service released its storm surge inundation map, which estimates that North Carolina could get around 9 feet of flooding. So just how bad is 9 feet of flooding? The Whether Channel released some CG animation showing just what it looks like, and it's scary.
Here's a live webcam of Hurricane Florence as it makes landfall in North Carolina.
