Hurricane Florence made landfall Friday morning at Category 1 strength near Wrightsville Beach, North Carolina, east of Wilmington. Certain parts of the Carolinas are expected to receive up to 40 inches of rain this weekend, causing terrible flooding. Storm surge has already reached 10 feet in some areas, and a number of water rescues have taken place, notably in New Bern, North Carolina. Hundreds of thousands of people are already without power.
We're putting together a disaster relief team in partnership with Samaritan's Purse to assist those impacted by the storm.
