Sailors cast off mooring lines to the Command hospital ship USNS Comfort as the ship evacuates Naval Station Norfolk ahead of the projected arrival of Hurricane Florence in Norfolk, Virginia, U.S., on September 11, 2018. Hurricane Florence the most powerful storm to threaten the Carolinas in nearly three decades is expected to strengthen. With sustained winds of about 140mph (225km/h), the weather system is currently a Category Four storm. Tropical-storm-force winds are due to reach the coasts of North and South Carolina on Thursday morning, and hurricane-force winds may be felt around Thursday night, ahead of an anticipated Friday morning landfall.
