Officials Urge Evacuation Before Unpredictable Hurricane

Florence is projected to hit the coasts of North and South Carolina overnight Thursday and be followed by several rainy days. Hundreds of thousands of people have left their homes, and more are on the way to safer areas. VOA's Zlatica Hoke has more.
