Hurricane Florence is tracking farther north and is expected to gain even more strength as the Category 4 storm barrels toward the coast of North and South Carolina, according to an update from the National Hurricane Center on Tuesday morning.

As of 11 a.m. ET Tuesday, the center of Hurricane Florence was about 900 miles east-southeast of the North Carolina coast and headed toward the U.S. at 16 mph. Florence is currently producing maximum sustained wind speeds of 130 mph, according to the latest readings from an NOAA Hurricane Hunter aircraft.

“Florence is expected to begin re-strengthening later today and continue a slow strengthening trend for the next day or so. While some weakening is expected on Thursday, Florence is expected to be an extremely dangerous major hurricane through landfall,” the National Hurricane Center said.
