Hurricane Florence is set to park itself off the coast of the Carolinas, delivering a rainy punch and threatening a huge swath of the coastline before making landfall.

The Category 3 storm is forecast to deliver as much as 30 inches (76 centimeters) of rain and has the potential to trigger catastrophic flooding, according to the National Hurricane Center. It’s also expected to drive a 13-foot storm surge to resort towns that have been largely evacuated.
