That's not something you would see every other day: people are getting evacuated via pre-established evacuation routes via interstate highways, as American southeast prepares for hurricane Florence.
The videos published online show highway lanes being reversed so that massive traffic could flow via both sides of the road. Highway patrol cars lead the countless cars away from the danger zone on the reversed lanes.
Right now, Virginia, North and South Carolina are under mandatory evacuation orders. The Red Cross and National Guard have been dispatched to South Carolina, according to Governor Henry McMaster.
Another video show ocean waters wash over the almost flooded roads at Outer Banks in North Carolina.
