Florence originated from a strong tropical wave off the western African coast on August 30 and has since then gained hurricane strength and weakened several times.

The hurricane Florence is expected to continue weakening, however, there is still a threat of severe flooding.

Over 27,000 people in the US states of North Carolina and South Carolina remain in temporary shelters.
