Hurricane Florence is expected to make landfall along the US Atlantic coast tonight or tomorrow. While coastal Virginia, North Carolina and South Carolina are expected to be the hardest hit, anyone who lives along the US Eastern seaboard should be keeping a close eye on the storm’s progress.

Hurricane Florence is hitting the US East Coast, whipping through Virginia, North Carolina and South Carolina, and you can watch it from several webcams. Above (WARNING: Very loud wind) is the view from Frying Pan Tower, 55km off the coast of Cape Fear, NC, where the wind is shredding the flag. More live cams below.
