"In Florida, we are fortunate to have the best emergency management professionals in the world to respond to disasters in our state and to help other states during times of emergency", Scott said in a statement. Similar declarations were made earlier in North and South Carolina, Virginia, Maryland and the District of Columbia.

Wilmington, North Carolina, just north of where the hurricane is expected to come ashore, was sunny around midday yesterday as the town appeared to be emptying.
