In addition to tens of thousands of homes and businesses, five military bases and half a dozen nuclear power plants are also in the path of the storm.

A state of emergency has been declared in both North and SC.

The eastbound lanes of several major highways have been shut to allow traffic to flow inland, but the exodus was slow along roads jammed with outward-bound vehicles.

Forecasters said wind speeds have dropped from a high of 225 km/h to 175 km/h, reducing it from a Category 4 storm to a Category 2, and additional fluctuations and weakening were likely as it swirled toward land.

Air Canada and Alaska Airlines have canceled their flights in and out of RDU on Thursday, but had not made any announcements about Friday as of 9 p.m. Wednesday. "Now it might be time for the exam", he said.

An American astronaut posted two additional photographs from the International Space Station, showing the storm aimed at Cape Hatteras, a thin and vulnerable strand of islands that jut out from North Carolina. So, the winds will be winding down much quicker near the coast before those winds get up here. They were expecting to be in SC for 10 to 14 days, according to a spokesman for Montgomery County Fire and Rescue Pete Piringer.
