As hurricane Florence approaches it is slated to be one of the most dangerous hurricanes in history expecting to affect upwards of 20 million people. Florence is expected to hit near the Carolina coast from Thursday night to Saturday. As it approaches, it will flood the coastal areas with torrential rain, high winds, coastal erosion and storm surge. As of Tuesday North, and South Carolina and Virginia were under warnings to evacuate the coast. We at TransVoyant hope that everyone makes it out safely and takes cover.
