NOAA (The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) released images of Hurricane Florence moving across the Atlantic.

Last week on Tuesday, it was moving towards the American states of North and South Carolina. When it hits, people expect it to reach a Category 5 strength with winds of up to 250 kilometres per hour.

Authorities ordered more than 1 million people to evacuate coastal areas.

Difficult words: release (show to people), expect (if people expect something to happen, they think that it is going to happen), Category 5 (a large hurricane).
