The Charlotte area is bracing for Hurricane Joaquin, a growing storm that could bring heavy rain to parts of the region already drenched by a week of steady precipitation.

Joaquin was upgraded to a Category 3 hurricane Wednesday night and had maximum sustained winds of 115 mph, according to the National Hurricane Center in Miami.
