Tropical Storm Isaac, 9th named storm of season, forms in Atlantic

Tropical Storm Isaac, 9th named storm of season, forms in Atlantic

Forecasters say Tropical Storm Florence has turned into a hurricane and it threatens to be a "major hurricane" as it swirls toward the U.S. East Coast for what could be a direct hit toward the end of the week.

It remains too soon to determine the location and magnitude of impacts from Florence.

The University of North Carolina Wilmington has announced it is canceling classes and issuing a voluntary evacuation for students as Hurricane Florence approaches the East Coast.

As a result, states of emergency have been declared in North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia, due to fears over the weather conditions the storm will bring.

Florence, a tropical storm as of 8 a.m. Sunday morning, was 660 nautical miles southeast of Bermuda and moving west.

A tropical storm becomes a hurricane when maximum sustained winds reach at least 74 miles per hour.

"Make your plans now", South Carolina Governor Henry McMaster urged residents during a Sunday afternoon news conference. Isaac and Helene are both located west of the African coast, trailing Florence's westward path.

The man now assisting police remains in custody, no charges have been laid at this time. The incident was described as Australia's worst mass shooting since 1996.

McMaster said he had asked President Donald Trump to declare a federal emergency in SC in anticipation of the storm's arrival. But it is now entering a warmer zone, meteorologists said.

The state of sc is preparing for some level of impact from Hurricane Florence, Gov. Henry McMaster announced Sunday. It was expected to strengthen into a hurricane then weaken by the middle of the week.

The new update from the National Hurricane Center shows that Tropical Storm Florence, which was once a major Category 4 hurricane, is expected to strengthen back into a Category 4 before reaching the coastal areas of the United States.

The governors of both North and SC have declared states of emergency.

Forecasters were also tracking two other storms farther out in the Atlantic.

The storm's center was 750 miles (1,200 km) southeast of Bermuda at 11 a.m. EDT on Sunday.

A BWS spokesman said: “Bermuda should remain outside the radius of tropical storm force winds and the only significant impact is expected to be rough to very rough southeasterly swells which could create hazardous rip currents, especially along the South Shore.”.

Some swells generated by the storm have already been reported and can potentially cause risky surf conditions and rip currents.
