Foreign Ministry issues warning to Israelis in Florence’s path

The Israeli Foreign Ministry issues a statement urging Israeli nationals living in the projected path of Hurricane Florence, which is expected to hit the southeastern United States early Friday with life-threatening wind speeds, to closely follow statements and instructions by US authorities.

In its statement, the ministry urges Israeli citizens “residing in the area or who plan to travel there to follow the instructions of the National Hurricane Center of the United States regarding the hurricane’s path, and to obey the instructions of local authorities.”

The National Hurricane Center of the American government’s National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration has warned that Florence is “expected to bring [a] life-threatening storm surge and rainfall to portions of the Carolinas and Mid-Atlantic states.”
