That's why, regardless of its categorization, the storm is still so severe.

By Friday evening, at least four people were reported killed. "Flash flooding continues over the Carolinas and may develop across parts of the Delmarva into Pennsylvania today". But the storm is still causing unbelievable amounts of devastation.

Florence is leaving hundreds of thousands without power.

As families seek refuge, they could use your help. Every time you see a house fire on the news, the Red Cross is there.

Koch, who retired 1 1/2 years ago from his architectural antique retail store, refused to watch the natural disaster play out on a screen.

Here are a handful of places to start.

The Red Cross was in the WIS studio on Monday, September 17 to host a disaster relief phone bank.

But before you donate, be sure to check that the organization you're sending money to is reputable and not performing fraud.

Having already deployed an emergency team to North Carolina, Americares is ready to help impacted communities by delivering emergency medicines and relief supplies.

A Red Cross volunteer from Oahu has been sent to SC to support sheltering operations after Tropical Storm Florence.

Jordan, of Webster City, has been a Red Cross volunteer since 2014 This will be her fourth national deployment, according to Breitbach.

Help people affected by Hurricane Florence by visiting redcross.org, calling 1- 800-RED CROSS or texting the word FLORENCE to 90999 to make a $10 donation.

Those in affected areas are urged to make an appointment now to give blood or platelets to help maintain the nation's blood supply. Jolene Carpenter is the district 1 director for the Red Cross.

You can donate through Google, here.

Cox said that while the local Salvation Army must be careful not to overload the mobile canteen, it will accept donations of bottled water and dry goods such as boxed pasta meals, dry beans and dry rice to send to the coast with the disaster response team on Sunday. "However, there are no agencies that provide diapers".

Wilmington has been cut off from the rest of North Carolina.

Monetary donations can be made here or through their Amazon Wishlist. He also asked all Apple employees in the Carolinas, and everyone in the hurricane's path, to stay safe.

"I love being able to support out disaster volunteers this way".

By Friday evening, Florence was downgraded to a tropical storm, its winds weakening to 70 miles per hour as it pushed inland.
