Hurricane Florence crashed into the Carolinas Friday with 144-kph winds, torrential rains and a powerful storm surge before slowing to a pace that meant it would plague the area with days of flooding.The center of the hurricane's eye came ashore at about 7:15 a.m. local time near Wrightsville Beach close to Wilmington, North Carolina, with sustained winds of 150 kmph, the National Hurricane Center said.By 11 a.m. the winds had dropped to 128 kmph and the center was about 3.1 km inland, 30 km southwest of Wilmington, and moving west at a sluggish 5 kmph.National Weather Service forecaster Brandon Locklear predicted Florence would drop up to eight months' worth of rain in two or three days.
