Hurricane Florence peaked as a category four storm in the Atlantic before undergoing an eye-wall replacement cycle weakening the storm prior to landfall. However, eye-wall replacement cycles often expand the storm. While Florence made landfall in Wrightsville Beach, North Carolina; the storm grew in size. The results were catastrophic for residents near the Wilmington, North Carolina area as many dealt with days of torrential rains and floods.
After the storm had passed, $25 billion dollars of damage had been done and 54 fatalities had been attributed to the hurricane. Florence’s biggest impact was the amount of rainfall that poured down on eastern North Carolina. Elizabethtown recorded 36 inches of rainfall over a four-day period before the storm finally moved northward into Virginia and then back out to sea.
