Hurricane Florence is weakened, but officials are still warning of a "disaster" and urge people not to endanger their lives by staying.

The hurricane, which was downgraded from Category 4 to Category 2, packs winds of 110 mph, according to the National Hurricane Center.

Officials are still warning of a "catastrophe on the doorstep" even though the storm is weakening and 10 million people are in a state of emergency storm in Georgia, North and South Carolina, Virginia, Maryland and Washington DC.

Florence is expected to land on Thursday at the border of Carolinas and is still facing major storm surges, torrential rains and catastrophic floods.
