The storm made landfall early on Thursday, bringing torrential rain and violent winds to coastline communities. Videos show huge gusts pushing against trees and sending debris flying through the air.



Residents have been ordered to find a safe place to sit out the storm.

“TAKE COVER NOW! Treat these imminent extreme winds as if a tornado was approaching. Move immediately to a safe room in your shelter. Take action now to protect your life!” The National Weather Service tweeted

The National Hurricane Center (NHC) reported 150mph winds and warned of “potentially catastrophic impacts” on the region.

In one video, huge balls of light, believed to be explosions, can be seen in the distance as powerful, whistling winds bend nearby trees. Another eyewitness shared a video of the terrifying gusts while taking shelter under a porch awning.
