The "Storm Of a Lifetime" -- that's how The National Weather Service is describing Hurricane Florence and her potential impact on parts of the Carolina coastline. Weather experts say it's still unclear where exactly the monster storm will make landfall -- but she's likely to stay farther south. Forecasters are warning that Florence could hover offshore for several days before making landfall this weekend -- allowing her to pack her punches even harder than originally predicted. President Trump today is warning the almost 2 million people who are in her possible path to "get out of its way...Don't play games with it. It's a big one." 



Electronic cigarette companies are romancing too many young people with their fruity-flavored liquid nicotine. So says the Food and Drug Administration, and now the agency is threatening to pull flavored e-cigarette products off the shelves unless their makers can prove they have a plan to prevent underage usage. The companies that manufacture Juul, Vuse, MarkTen XL, Blu and Logic now have sixty days to comply before the FDA moves forward with a vape veto. More than 97 percent of the e-cigarette market consists of flavored products. Commissioner Scott Gottlieb explains, "The FDA cannot tolerate a whole generation of young people becoming addicted to nicotine as a trade-off for enabling adults to access these products."
