Florence strengthened into a hurricane again Sunday as forecasters warned the menacing storm could deliver a brutal hit along the East Coast by the end of the week.
Virginia joined North and South Carolina in declaring a state of emergency ahead of the storm, which is expected to be a major hurricane. Major hurricanes are those reaching Category 3 or higher, meaning sustained winds of at least 111 miles per hour. The storm is forecast to make landfall along the North Carolina coast sometime Thursday as a Category 3 or 4 storm.
