Isaac drops rain on Puerto Rico, sparks outages

Ismael LynchSep 15, 2018

While a small craft warning and a high surf advisory will be in effect for Barbados from 6 p.m. tomorrow until further notice, no storm watch or warning has been issued, at least for now.

At 11 a.m., the center of the system was about 190 miles east-southeast of Kingston, Jamaica.

Helene had maximum sustained winds of 70 miles per hour and was moving north at 18 miles per hour.

Meanwhile, Isaac is a tropical storm that will eventually die out as it moves closer to the Yucatán Peninsula, according to Bridges.

"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".

As the storm continues toward Southeastern North Carolina, it will bring life-threatening storm surges, flooding and unsafe waves to the coast, the briefing said.

With predicted rainfall measured in feet not inches, forecasters say people living along creeks and rivers in the Carolinas should move to higher ground well ahead of the storm's arrival. "It is important to note that the area affected by a tropical cyclone can extend well beyond the confines of the cone enclosing the most likely track area of the center".

Gargantuan waves towering up to 83 feet were crashing within Hurricane Florence's sprawling reach early Wednesday as the Category 4 monster continued its ominous advance on the East Coast, experts said. "There will be some rain but at the moment it doesn't look as though that's going to be the issue".

Current guidance has the low pressure system moving northeastwards up through the Irish Sea overnight Monday and early on Tuesday, although the exact path is still uncertain.

Neighbors are taking action as well. When that pile of water hits land, it becomes a storm surge, and they can be devastating.

Hurricane Warnings are in effect from the South Santee River in SC to Duck, North Carolina.

New Hanover County officials said Thursday morning that it could accept more residents seeking shelter at Trask Middle School, Eaton Elementary School, Codington Elementary School, the Johnson Pre-K Center and Noble Middle School.
