4 Things You Need to Know About Hurricane Florence

Hurricane Florence made landfall on Friday in North Carolina. Here are the four things you need to know . . .

1. At least 18 people have died from the hurricane so far in North and South Carolina.

2. And around 740,000 homes and businesses still don't have power.

3. Florence was downgraded to a tropical depression as the winds slowed down early on Sunday . . . but that doesn't mean the rain and flooding are going to stop.

4. And that's why the National Weather Service called Florence a "storm of a lifetime."

It's massive, it moved slowly to keep hitting the same areas over and over, it traveled inland, which caused extreme flooding . . . and it's still going strong even now that the winds have slowed down.
