One person was killed when Florence spawned at least 16 tornadoes on Monday in Virginia, where dozens of buildings were destroyed, the National Weather Service reported . Roads are being cleared and the landfill is open to accept storm refuse. The sheer amount of water has caused rivers to overflow their banks, making roads impassable and flooding entire neighborhoods, leaving hundreds of thousands trapped.
Florence was moving west-southwest at about 5 miles per hour (7 km/h), with its center located over eastern SC. "If those shelters fill up, we will establish more shelters", Cooper said.

The investigation has come to light at the same time that Long has become the face of the administration's effort to prepare for Hurricane Florence and its aftermath - a consequential test of President Donald Trump's leadership and of FEMA itself, after harsh criticism of the federal response to a hurricane that devastated Puerto Rico in 2017.

The office of Virginia Governor Ralph Northam predicted "catastrophic inland flooding, high winds and possible widespread power outages". "Florence is quickly becoming a powerful hurricane ", hurricane specialist Eric Blake wrote. "This is the craziest one".
