Hurricane Florence is becoming terrifyingly powerful. Hurricane hunter aircraft are reporting that Florence's maximum sustained winds are at 130 miles-per-hour, making it a Category 4 storm. It's marching toward coastal areas of the Carolinas and Virginia. More than a million people in all three states are under mandatory orders to evacuate before Florence starts slamming into the coast late Wednesday.
