As the East Coast braces for the impact of Hurricane Florence, we have a map that gives a unique look at the storm and demonstrates the hurricane's size compared to Michigan.

The National Weather Service's latest forecast for Hurricane Florence says, "Florence is forecast to approach and slowly move southwest along the Carolina coastline Thu night into Saturday. This slow motion will bring a persistent, life-threatening storm surge, and, excessive to historic rains, locally up to 40 inches."

The National Hurricane Center at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration has multiple looks at Hurricane Florence and the entire country via satellite and enhancements. We've taken an image of the hurricane, added color to show contrast in the clouds, then placed the image over Michigan to show its size.


This image of Hurricane Florence was taken around 4:00 p.m. EST on Sept. 12, 2018.

Hurricane Florence will bring catastrophic damages to the East Coast. You can help. Here's a list places where you can donate to help those who need it most.
