Hurricane Florence: Here are all the college football, NFL, MLB games impacted by storm
Here's a rundown of matchups affected by the inclement weather hitting the East Coast
Three states have already been issued mandatory evacuations in advance of Hurricane Florence, a Category 4 storm that CBS News says "could become one of the most catastrophic hurricanes to hit the Eastern Seaboard in decades."
The leading edge of the storm has already arrived in North Carolina and, per CBS News, is expected to slow down and wring itself out for days, unloading as much as 2 1/2 feet of rain that could cause flooding well inland and wreak environmental havoc by washing over industrial waste sites and hog farms. Forecasters and politicians pleaded with the public to take the warnings seriously and minced no words in describing the threat.
"This storm is a monster. It's big and it's vicious. It is an extremely, dangerous, life-threatening, historic hurricane," North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper said."The waves and the wind this storm may bring is nothing like you've ever seen. Even if you've ridden out storms before, this one is different. Don't bet your life on riding out a monster."
Meanwhile, athletic directors and team officials across the country are monitoring the hurricane's projected path and a number of sporting events have already been rescheduled or outright cancelled.
