Florence remains a powerful category four hurricane

Ismael LynchSep 15, 2018

"Winds are likely to gust to 55-65 miles per hour quite widely in the warning area, with possible gusts of 70-80 miles per hour in exposure".

There are now four storms swirling in the Atlantic Ocean with the formation of Tropical Storm Joyce.

A turn toward the northeast with a rapid increase in forward motion is forecast to occur over the weekend.

A smaller hurricane dubbed Isaac is reportedly heading for the Caribbean, while Hurricane Helene - now also in the Atlantic - is forecast to track towards the UK.

The storm now appears to be on track to enter the Gulf of Mexico as a tropical wave early next week, meaning South Florida will hardly notice a thing. A hurricane watch stretches from Edisto Beach, South Carolina to the South Santee River.

Storm surge occurs when the hurricane-force winds blow over the ocean water.

A small-craft warning means in this case that surface winds greater than or equal to 25 knots and seas equal to or greater than 3 metres (10ft) are already affecting or expected to affect the marine area.

However, hurricane watches are in effect for Guadeloupe, Martinique and Dominica, while storm warnings have been issued for Antigua, Montserrat and St. Kitts and Nevis. "We should also continue to keep our brothers and sisters located in the Carolinas in our thoughts and prayers as Hurricane Florence approaches their area".

However, according to the latest projections, the storm might shift slightly to the south and affect Georgia with heavy rain and possible flooding.

A Hurricane Hunter airplane flew through the remnants of the storm and was unable to find a well-defined center, the hurricane center said in a 5 a.m. Saturday advisory.

The town of Oriental, North Carolina, had gotten more than 18 inches of rain just a few hours into the deluge, while Surf City had 14 inches and it was still coming down.

The storm, presently called Invest 95L, is predicted to bring one to three inches of rain to the Houston area, according to meteorology blog Space City Weather. It was moving north at 21 miles per hour. Please consult products from your local weather office.

The agency is also monitoring a tropical disturbance that has a 60 percent chance of forming a tropical storm.

Some of the models show Isaac degenerating into a trough of low pressure in five days.
