Florence isn't the only one. There are more hurricanes brewing

  • Hurricane Florence approaches east US, set to become ‘extremely dangerous’ storm

The track from the National Hurricane Center shows Florence is likely a high end category 4 hurricane by late day Wednesday with winds near 150 miles per hour.

"Further strengthening is anticipated, and Florence is expected to be an extremely risky major hurricane through Thursday", the National Hurricane Center said.

Hurricane Florence is rapidly intensifying and could strike a direct and unsafe blow anywhere from the Carolinas to the Mid-Atlantic region later this week, possibly as a fearsome category 4, forecasters said.

Florence is being felt along the North Carolina coast with large sea swells.

Early on Monday, Sam Lillo, a University of Oklahoma meteorology student, posted this ominous video of Florence at sunrise.

In fact, forecasts are predicting that Florence could be "Harvey-like". "Florence could dump a foot of rain in places that cannot handle it, making for a very scary flooding situation in some areas".

Florence is expected to dump 1 to 1.5 inches of rain on inland parts of SC, according to the National Weather Service. SC ordered an estimated 1 million people to evacuate its coast.

While the surf height at local beaches is estimated at just 3 feet Monday, the risk for life-threatening rip currents in the surf zone remains high. People living well inland should prepare to lose power and endure flooding and other hazards, he warned. Most of the state of Hawaii was under either a tropical storm warning or watch on Monday morning, as Hurricane Olivia bears westward, with 85 miles per hour winds. Officials have declared states of emergency in North and South Carolina, Virginia, Maryland and the District of Columbia.

"If you can go south, go west and south", Eck suggested. The early projections show a 20-30"+ rainfall forecast, winds over 110 miles per hour, and a major storm surge!"

"With this order government agencies will begin to mobilize in anticipation of a hurricane", McMaster said. That scenario that would likely mean more impact in the Charlotte area.

Eck suspects this to be partly, due to Earth's warmer atmosphere.

Since the summer's heat extends a little longer now, the jet stream might come down in October rather than mid-September.

"The whole tropical environment has caught on fire", he said. Meteorologist Chad Meyers told viewers that "this storm gets stronger and stronger" as it approaches the Carolinas, and this coming weekend could be a disastrous one for millions of residents. A northwestward motion with a decrease in forward speed is expected for Hurricane Helene through late Tuesday.
