NWS: Florence Remnant Could Return to Carolinas

ROCKINGHAM— Florence may not be finished with the Carolinas just yet.

A remnant of the once-Category 4 hurricane that devastated parts of North and South Carolina over the weekend could be headed this way.

According to the National Weather Service, a low pressure system left over from Florence has looped back around and currently has gale-force winds. As of 8:07 p.m. Thursday, the system was 100 miles northeast of Bermuda heading southwest at 15 mph.

While the probability is only 20 percent, meteorologists say the low could develop tropical characteristics over the next five days.
