  • 83-Foot Wave Recorded By Satellite Monitoring Hurricane Florence

"Every forecast that the National Hurricane we look closely", said Joseph Theobald, Director of Emergency Services. "A NOAA buoy located about 80 miles (130 km) south of the center of Florence has recently reported sustained winds of 52 km (83 km/h) with a gust to 64 mph (104 km/h)".

Tropical Storm Isaac was edging towards the Leeward Islands Thursday morning on a path that could bring the storm into the Cayman Islands area.

"We can not stress this enough, Florence poses a very serious threat to people who live far away from the coast", said a National Weather Service tweet late Tuesday.

"Overcast with moderate to heavy rain for south-west England, Wales, Ireland, north-west England and Scotland with fresh to strong and gusty southerly winds through the afternoon and evening".

The storm is tracking to the west at 16 miles per hour.

That is causing the so called "cone of uncertainty" to expand. The winds may increase a bit Saturday night, possibly gusting over 40mph, especially in the northern/eastern CSRA. Satellite images show very little left as a recognizable tropical storm.

While Hurricane Florence continues barreling toward the Carolina coast, the Caribbean got some good news Wednesday: Isaac appears to be weakening.

Mother and child killed as Florence swamps Carolinas
The coastal area of SC features hundreds of inlets while North Carolina has barrier islands miles away from the mainland. More than 12,000 people were in shelters in North Carolina and 400 in Virginia, where the forecast was less dire.

The U.S. National Hurricane Center (NHC) provided the latest update on Hurricane Florence at 8 a.m. on September 12. If the two systems become tropical storms, it would be the first time the Atlantic has had five named storms at once, Colorado State University meteorologist Phil Klotzbach said.

Hurricane Florence isn't the only storm threatening lives and property around the world.

Flooding farther inland also a concern as Florence meanders over NC, SC, northern GA for several days.

The water could reach as high as 9 to 13 feet "from Cape Fear to Cape Lookout, including the Neuse, Pamlico, Pungo and Bay Rivers".

Florence is now 485 miles from Wilmington, North Carolina.

It was a potentially catastrophic Category 4 storm but was expected to keep drawing energy from the warm water and intensify to near Category 5, which means winds of 157 miles per hour (253 kph) or higher. "Near the coast, the surge will be accompanied by large and destructive waves", the NHC added.
