Hurricane Florence is approaching the Eastern Coast of the United States with serious fervor.

Meteorologists suggest that the hurricane will reach the U.S. East coast on September 13.

The National Hurricane Center forecasts additional strengthening for Florence before it reaches the coastline of North Carolina and SC early Friday, Sept. 14.
