Hurricane Florence slightly increases in speed

Hurricane Florence as seen from the ISS on Monday morning

Hurricane conditions are possible within the hurricane watch area by Thursday morning, with tropical storm conditions possible early Thursday in both the hurricane and tropical storm watch areas.

The hurricane is expected to reach the coast of North Carolina Thursday night into Friday morning.

South Carolina Governor Henry McMaster ordered the state's entire coastline to be evacuated starting at noon Tuesday and predicted that 1 million people would flee.

United States President Donald Trump on Tuesday issued a series of storm warnings as Hurricane Florence advanced towards the east coast of the country.

The National Hurricane Center said Monday the monster storm will be close to Category 5 strength by Tuesday.

North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper said his state is "in the bull's-eye" and urged people to "get ready now".

Trump has declared states of emergency for North and SC and Virginia, and canceled campaign events Thursday and Friday in anticipation of the storm. The storm was located roughly 1,170 miles east-southeast of the Cape Fear region, and remained a unsafe Category 4 storm. This general motion is expected to continue for the next few days.

As coastal communities up and down the East Coast prepare for the worst this weekend from Hurricane Florence, Massachusetts need not join them in filling up sandbags and stocking up on bottled water. Some forecasting models show it could unload a foot or two of rain in places, causing devastating inland flooding.

Since reliable record-keeping began more than 150 years ago, North Carolina has been hit by only one Category 4 hurricane: Hazel, with 130 miles per hour winds, in 1954.

The crowd wasn't happy with the Eagles' first-half performance, which resulted in Philadelphia being down 6-3 at halftime. Quinn said going with such personnel was the reason why Jones was not on the field for three plays from the 1-yard line.

SOUTHEASTERN N.C. - The National Weather Service has placed parts of New Hanover County under a coastal flood advisory through midnight.

Lining up behind Florence, Isaac was about 1,230 miles (1,985 kilometers) east of the Windward Islands with top winds of 75 mph (120 kph) early Monday, moving west at 13 mph (20 kph).

Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 105 miles (165 km) from the centre. Any Category 3, 4 or 5 hurricane is classified as a major hurricane.

We'll just have to wait and see where all of them go. Water, not the wind, will probably be the biggest threat.

There is Hurricane Helene and Issac which as of this writing are category 1 and 2 storms.

Isaac is expected to reach landfall in the Caribbean later this week.

Forecasts call for between 25 and 38 cm of rain in the hardest-hit areas, possibly more if the storm stalls over land, as expected, Graham said.

The hurricane will pose a pretty serious threat to the East Coast and is expected to produce winds of around 140 miles per hour as it makes landfall.
