Coastal communities prepare for Florence and Isaac

Hurricane Florence Won’t Be The Last To Hit The US This Season As More Form In Its Wake

The National Hurricane Center said the storm would dump as much as 30 to 40 inches (76-102 cm) of rain on the southeastern coast of North Carolina and part of northeastern SC, as well as up to 10 inches (25 cm) in southwestern Virginia.

According to the forecast of the institution, the maximum sustained winds have decreased to 55 kilometers per hour with higher gusts.

All watches and warnings that had been issued on neighboring islands were canceled Thursday.

However, it is expected to generate accumulations of rain of between five and seven centimeters in isolated areas of the Lesser Antilles, with a danger of flooding. Little change in strength is expected over the next several hours.

Meanwhile, Helene is heading north towards the British Isles at around 14mph and sub-tropical storm Joyce was some 945 miles WSW of the Azores drifting southwest. Vertical shear is expected to increase and turn more northwesterly during the next 36 hours, and Isaac's structure could degrade further over the next day or two. Gradual weakening is forecast during the next few days. The storm is expected to impact the windward and leeward islands on Thursday.

Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 70 miles (110 km) from the center and tropical-storm-force winds now extend outward up to 195 miles (315 km).

A tropical storm warning is in effect for Martinique, Dominica and Guadeloupe, while a tropical storm watch is in effect for Antigua, Montserrat, St Kitts and Nevis, and Saba and St Eustatius.
