  • State of emergency called in North Carolina as tropical storm Florence nears US East Coast

Isaac has maximum sustained winds of 65 miles per hour (mph) and is moving toward the west near nine mph. Impacts include possible flooding, high winds, and potential storm surge.

A confluence of storms this close together is notable, according to NHC scientist Eric Blake.

Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 60 miles (95 km) from the center.

The storm is moving westward at 5 miles per hour.

At present, forecasters said that the storm is located 750 miles southeast of Bermuda, and it is forecast to move over the southwestern Atlantic Ocean between the Bahamas and Bermuda on September 11 and September 12 before getting close to the southeastern USA coastline.

"Action today can avoid losses due to Florence", he said.

There are no coastal watches or warnings in effect, but officials say it is expected to become a hurricane by Monday.

Zogby said Trump has "captivated" Republican voters, collecting up to 87 percent support among party members. Saying that Nazis are bad?" He condemned moments of Trump's presidency and the White House .

But most of the many "spaghetti" models for Florence agree that the storm is headed to the East Coast near the Carolinas.

The risk of direct impacts in the US are increasing.

Norwegian Cruise Line said it had to change the itinerary of a Bermuda-bound ship - adding stops in the Maritimes - because of the storm. But forecasters said that the risk of "direct impacts continues to increase" and that a huge coastal area from northern Florida to North Carolina should prepare for a major hit by Thursday. Some development of this system is anticipated after that time, according to N.H.C., and a tropical depression could form over the weekend or early next week while the wave moves westward over the far eastern tropical Atlantic Ocean.

“As a public safety note, the south shore will experience unsettled surf conditions associated with Hurricane Florence, and the public is encouraged to use caution on those beaches.”. We will closely be monitoring its track in the coming days.

A slew of risky storms - hurricanes, tropical storms and a typhoon - are now traveling over both the Atlantic and Pacific.

In the Pacific, Hurricane Olivia now has winds of 80 mph, and is approximately 825 miles east-northeast of Hilo, Hawaii. On the current track, Olivia may be near the Hawaiian Islands by late Tuesday.

This news about Hurricane Olivia comes just weeks after Hurricane Lane brought 3-4 feet of rainfall to parts of Hawaii.
