Florence rapidly intensified into a fearsome category 3 hurricane on Monday and could strike a direct and dangerous blow to the Carolinas later this week, possibly as a category 4, forecasters said. The first impacts were already being seen on barrier islands as dangerous rip currents and seawater flowing over a coastal road.
