Hurricane Florence made landfall near Wrightsville Beach, North Carolina at about 7:15 a.m., the National Hurricane Center said

Florence weakened slightly to a strong Category 1 storm late Thursday and had 90 mph sustained winds early Friday, the center said

Life-threatening storm surge and hurricane-force winds were occurring along the North Carolina coast, the center added "Catastrophic" freshwater flooding is expected over portions of the Carolinas

The center said, "A turn toward the west at a slow forward speed is expected today, followed by a slow west-southwestward motion tonight and Saturday. On the forecast track, the center of Florence is expected to move inland across extreme southeastern North Carolina and extreme eastern South Carolina Friday and Saturday"

Hurricane-force winds extended outward up to 90 miles from Florence's center, and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 195 miles, the NHC said
