NC governor warns, 'Don't risk your life.'

RESENDING WITH NEW RESTRICTIONS In the United States, North Carolina was preparing for storm surge, potentially reaching a height of 7 feet, Governor Rory Cooper said at a news conference on Thursday.

"Up to 10 inches or more of rain in coastal areas and three to six inches in central North Carolina," Cooper said.

"The new forecast projects sustained winds of 100 miles per hour with gusts up to 125.

Storm surges will be as high as seven feet." Dorian is predicted to move near or over the coast of South Carolina later Thursday and then North Carolina overnight, forecasters said.

At 2 a.m.

EST on Thursday, Dorian was about 105 miles (170 km) south of Charleston, South Carolina, the NHC said.

It had strengthened to regain its status as a Category 3 storm late on Wednesday with winds of 115 mph (185 kph), after passing over warm waters which drive hurricane intensity, the NHC said.

The NHC issued a storm surge warning that covered the whole length of the coasts of Georgia, South Carolina and North Carolina, extending to Hampton Roads in southern Virginia.

More than 2.2 million people in Florida, Georgia, North Carolina and South Carolina have been ordered to evacuate, although Florida has avoided a direct hit.
