At 7:30 a.m. EDT on September 14, Hurricane Florence made landfall near Wrightsville Beach, North Carolina, as a Category 1 storm, with maximum sustained winds of 90 mph (150 km/h) and a minimum central pressure of 958 mb. As of 8 a.m. Florence was slowly drifting to the west at 6 mph (9 km/h) along the North Carolina coastline, located near 34.1°N, 77.9°W, about 10 miles (15 km) west of Wilmington, North Carolina, and 65 miles (105 km) northeast of Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.

Wind gusts as high as 112 mph (180 km/h) have been reported at offshore observation locations, and as high as 105 mph (169 km/h) at the Wilmington Airport. Water levels associated with the storm surge in Pamlico Sound and Emerald Isle, North Carolina, remain elevated. These waters are expected to rise as the tides come back in.  A USGS gauge in Emerald Isle, North Carolina, recently recorded 6.1 feet above normal water levels.

A slow westward to west-southwestward motion is expected today through Saturday, September 15. On the forecast track, Florence will weaken and the center will move further inland across extreme southeastern North Carolina and extreme eastern South Carolina today and Saturday. Florence will then move generally northward across the western Carolinas and the central Appalachian Mountains early next week. This slow motion will result in extreme inland flooding across North and South Carolina.

A storm surge warning is in effect for the South Santee River, South Carolina, to Duck, North Carolina, Albemarle and Pamlico sounds, including the Neuse and Pamlico rivers. A storm surge watch is in effect for Edisto Beach, South Carolina, to South Santee river, South Carolina. A hurricane warning is in effect for the South Santee River, South Carolina, to Duck, North Carolina, and Albemarle and Pamlico sounds. A hurricane watch is in effect for Edisto Beach, South Carolina, to South Santee River South Carolina. A tropical storm warning is in effect for north of Duck, North Carolina, to Cape Charles Light, Virginia, and the Chesapeake Bay south of New Point Comfort, Virginia.
