(FOX NEWS) – As Tropical Storm Florence continued making its way toward the East Coast, North Carolina’s governor issued a state of emergency. The storm, expected to regain hurricane strength, poses the threat of heavy rain, dangerous surf and rip currents.
Gov. Roy Cooper declared the state of emergency Friday evening, calling on residents, specifically farmers, to prepare for the gathering storm.
While it’s still too early to know the storm’s path, we know we have to be prepared,” Cooper said in a news release. “During harvest, time is of the essence. Action today can avoid losses due to Florence.”
Cooper signed a transportation waiver that would allow farmers to harvest and transport their crops more quickly.
