WATCH: A closer look at Hurricane Florence -- Sept. 13, 2018

How much rain is expected, why Florence is so dangerous


Meteorologist Paul Gross hosted a special webcast Thursday afternoon for a closer look at Hurricane Florence. 

Gross discussed the storm forecast and why focusing on the category levels of a hurricane can be misleading. Even though Florence has been downgraded to a Category 2, and will become a Category 1 hurricane, there is reason to believe it is still extremely dangerous. 

He also took a look at how much rain is expected to fall in the Carolinas and how a lot of the water will be blown in from the ocean.
