Bracing for Hurricane Florence | Don't Miss This

Winds and rain were arriving later in SC, and a few people were still walking on the sand at Myrtle Beach while North Carolina was getting pounded.

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. The governor's office said a third person was killed while plugging in a generator.

More than 12,000 people were in shelters in North Carolina and 400 in Virginia, where the forecast was less dire.

Forecasters said that given the storm's size and slow track, it could cause epic damage similar to what the Houston area saw during Hurricane Harvey just over a year ago.

Officials say more than 100 people have already been rescued in the area overnight.
