Hurricanes are categorized based on winds. However, arguably the most dire concern with Florence is with water. Put simply, Florence is a "Category 5 flood threat."
According to the National Hurricane Center, rainfall could total 20 to 40 inches in coastal North Carolina, and rainfall of 6 to as much as 15 inches is possible in several other states in the Southeast and Appalachians.
You don't need rain nearly as heavy as what is being forecast near the coast of the Carolinas to trigger major flash flooding and river flooding in the Appalachians, due to the runoff enhancement of terrain.
Florence may produce heavy rain along the slopes of the Appalachians from north Georgia into West Virginia into early next week. This could lead to numerous rockslides and mudslides.
If that wasn't enough, trees may be more easily toppled by winds than otherwise when soil is saturated from either heavy rain or storm-surge flooding.
According to a National Hurricane Center study, roughly three of every four deaths in tropical cyclones in the U.S. are from water, either from storm surge (49 percent) or rainfall flooding (27 percent). Only 8 percent of U.S. deaths are from wind. 

People sometimes ask what is the use of studying geometry and trigonometry. Besides training the brain to think, if you only remember the basics of right triangles, it is obvious that a rise in sea level, or a storm surge, of a certain height can mean the water will come inland much farther than that.

If republican politicians were decent, honorable, and patriotic, they wouldn't tell such big lies in order to get your vote, to benefit their super-rich donors.
