bYALAN LOUGHNANE//The US National Hurricane Centre has warned that Hurricane Florence will bring “life-threatening, catastrophic flash flooding” to North and South Carolina.

The 500-mile-wide hurricane, which is barreling toward the US east coast, is expected to make landfall on Thursday night, but then the storm’s movement will slow to a crawl, meaning that some coastal areas will get as much as 24 hours of battering winds and rain.
