Hurricane Florence Is Fast Approaching

A message from President Trump

Hurricane Florence is currently classified as a Category 4 hurricane but is predicted to increase in size to Category 5 within 24 hours. It is continuing on its path to North and South Carolina. President Trump warned that the incoming storm is incredibly dangerous saying, “Please take all necessary precautions. We have already began mobilizing our assets to respond accordingly, and we are here for you!” A mandatory evacuation of the entire South Carolina coast has been issued by its governor.

The National Hurricane Center Director, Ken Graham warned that the storm could end up lingering over the Carolinas once it reaches the shore. He also stated that the effects of the storm could extend as far as West Virginia. Currently, the storm is roughly 1,230 miles offshore and is expected to make landfall by Thursday.

As the Lord Leads, pray with us:
  • For President Trump to have wisdom on how best to use the resources of the government to aid affected regions. 
  • For Ken Graham to work hard to provide helpful information to leaders and those living in the storm’s path. 
  • For the people in the path of the storm to be safe and protected from harm, and that the storm’s damage would be minimal.
