Maximum sustained winds Friday morning were near 35 miles per hour with higher gusts.

Sen. Jeff Merkley of OR said the administration was taking money from FEMA's "response and recovery" to the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency at a time when Hurricane Florence is bearing down on the Southeast U.S. coast.

Chris Landsea, chief of the analysis and forecast branch, told the Associated Press that such waves are entirely possible within the storm, but there's also a chance "radar misinterpreted rain as an 83-foot wave".

Olivia's maximum sustained winds are about 60 miles per hour, after the storm weakened from Category 1 strength, forecasters said.

Tornadoes: Tornadoes will be possible along and to the right of the track of Florence, including the Midlands, Pee Dee and Catawba Regions, this is especially in SC.

The ocean is moving inland ahead of Florence as storm surge begins to flood the Carolinas coast, according to the NHC.
