My prayers and thoughts go to those — including my reader(s) in the Carolinas — affected by Hurricane Florence.

This 11+-minute video is a montage of what occurred in North and South Carolina on Friday, September 14, 2018:

The video description is as follows:

Hurricane Florence and Flash floods in North Carolina, USA 2018. Amazing footage tropical storm Florence today. Hurricane Florence hit North and South Carolina as a category one hurricane early Friday, and already many residents are struggling to cope with the storm’s life-threatening forces.

Sixty-five mile-per-hour winds are blowing across the region, and some areas are projected to see as much as 40 inches of rain. As of Friday afternoon, some parts of the state had already seen 14 inches of rain. Hurricane Florence is slow, large, and intensely rainy. Its relatively slower speed means it will likely hover over coastal regions for longer than it would have if it were moving faster.

The last alert on Florence from the National Hurricane Center on Sunday, September 16, reads in part:

RAINFALL: Florence is expected to produce heavy and excessive
rainfall in the following areas…

Central and western North Carolina into far southwest Virginia…

An additional 5 to 10 inches, with storm total accumulations of 15
to 20 inches in western North Carolina. These rainfall amounts will
produce catastrophic flash flooding, prolonged significant river
flooding, and an elevated risk for landslides in western North
Carolina and far southwest Virginia.

Southern North Carolina into Northern South Carolina…

An additional 4 to 6 inches, isolated 8 inches. This rainfall will
result in additional flash flooding while also exacerbating the
river flooding. Storm total accumulations of 30 to 40 inches in
southeast North Carolina.

West-central Virginia, north of Roanoke and west of

2 to 4 inches, isolated 6 inches. This rainfall will result in
flash flooding and potentially lead to some river flooding.

TORNADOES: A few tornadoes remain possible across North Carolina
and eastern South Carolina today and tonight.

SURF: Swells generated by Florence are affecting Bermuda, portions
of the U.S. East Coast, and the northwestern and central Bahamas.
These swells are likely to cause life-threatening surf and rip
current conditions. Please consult products from your local weather

The storm is a boomerang shape and will be going northwest into the Ohio Valley on Monday before swinging northeast, reaching Maine this week:

FEMA employees have been working hard …

… along with emergency crews going in from around the United States …

… including the Marines:

Critters, such as snakes and alligators, are on the loose:

Benign animals have also been displaced:
