Tropical Storm Kirk forms in the Atlantic

Florence caused severe flooding in the US

They expect Kirk will track quickly westward over the next few days far from land.

Kirk was packing sustained winds of 35 miles per hour and its westward motion was expected to accelerate through Tuesday.

Kirk, which became the season's 11th named storm on Saturday, has weakened to a depression but could see some restrengthening before hitting the "ever-present wall of wind shear" near the Lesser Antilles, Masters said.

Late last week, Andrew Barksdale, a spokesman for the DOT, in answer to a query from The Robesonian said that it was uncertain how long I-95 could be closed, but said it might be as late as October 10. Some strengthening is forecast through Sunday, with little change in intensity expected on Monday and Tuesday. A faster west-northwestward motion is expected to begin tonight and continue through dissipation.

Scientists with the First Street Foundation estimate an additional 11,000 homes felt the effects of the storm surge, compared to the potential effects if that same size storm hit in 1970.

The video, posted on YouTube by Giannis Giannakopoulos , shows a beach in the town of Aitoliko covered in webs almost 300m long. It sounds like a something out of a horror movie: A town covered in thousands of webs, each crawling with hordes of spiders.

Tropical Storm Kirk and sub-Tropical Storm Leslie formed in the Atlantic Ocean.

Kirk was located about 450 miles south of the Cabo Verde Islands. The center puts a formation chance into a depression at 10 percent over the next two days and 30 percent through Wednesday or Thursday.

"A reduction in speed is likely after 48 hours once Kirk moves south of a large central Atlantic trough, but it should still be moving along at a pretty good clip". Leslie is moving south at 6 miles per hour.

Upper-level winds are expected to increase, limiting chances for additional development while the system moves near the southeastern US coast.

The NHC also noted there is a disturbance located between the United States and Bermuda, and it is forecast to move to the west.
