The Banker horses will probably be feeling the full effects of the storm Thursday evening, with high winds and major flooding. Flying debris and falling trees may also be a problem. Inland waterways probably started to rise today. Tides will be a factor.
There may be a high pressure system to the north, impeding forward movement and steering the storm down the coast. The map above, from the NHC, suggests it will retain hurricane strength until Saturday.
