Hurricane Florence threatening the Carolina Coast as it is expected to make landfall later this week.

FOX's Eben Brown reports from Wilmington, N.C.:

Hurricane Florence will make a late Thursday or early Friday landfall:

(North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper) "We still have a couple of days to get ready. So let's use that time."

Retailers are trying to match demands of residents buying up what they need to make it through a rough patch:

(Food Lion manager) "We stocked on water, milk, bread, canned goods. So, it's just trying to keep up with keeping the water filled up cuz they're buying it pretty heavily."
