Hurricane Dorian’s eye has made U.S. landfall at Cape Hatteras in North Carolina, according to reports. More than 275,000 people were without power Friday morning as Dorian brought treacherous conditions to the coastlines of the Carolinas. North Carolinians were told to take shelter as the powerful Category 1 storm barrelled toward the state. “Get to safety and stay there,” Gov. Roy Cooper said late Thursday. “This won’t be a brush-by. Whether it comes ashore or not, the eye of the storm will be close enough to cause extensive damage.” Flash floods have been reported along the coasts of both Carolinas and the National Hurricane Center said “significant, life-threatening flash flooding” was expected into southeast Virginia. Most of the power outages have hit counties along the South Carolina coast and immediately inland, according to NBC News.
