The National Hurricane Center is downgrading Hurricane Florence to a category two storm. But don’t get too comfy – Florence is still packing strong winds of 110 miles an hour.
And that’s why, despite the weakening winds, forecasters are still warning of devastating storm surge and heavy rainfall. Not only is Florence growing in size, the storm surge could be as high as 13-feet, while as many as 40-inches of rain could fall in some places.
Friday Northeast Ohio could see some random rain bands from Florence. It may be later next week when we’ll see heavier rain from Florence in this area.
