Put those together, and waves off of Africa can strengthen into a hurricane like Florence.

That's as high as an eight-story building.

At least 800 flights have been cancelled or grounded due to the storm's expected landfall, CNN reported.

The most likely arrival time for tropical storm force wind is during the day Friday. Last year's Hurricane Harvey sat over Houston for days, dumping more than 60 inches in some areas.

It is predicted the Carolinas could begin feeling tropical storm force winds early Thursday.

Hurricane Florence, the Category 2 storm heading straight for my parents' SC house, has the country on high alert.

The National Hurricane Center and computer models have shifted the forecast track for Hurricane Florence noticeably to the south and west, but it doesn't mean northern North Carolina, Virginia and other mid-Atlantic states are in the clear.

Florence is joined by Tropical Storm Isaac and Hurricane Helene in this snapshot taken Tuesday some 1 million miles away via NASA's Earth Polychromatic Imaging Camera (EPIC) on the DSCOVR satellite.

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. The Appalachians could see 3 to 6 inches of rain, with isolated areas of 12 inches.

"The weather could be potentially very disturbed early next week".

Florence is now 485 miles from Wilmington, North Carolina.

That is causing the so called "cone of uncertainty" to expand. Weather forecasters are watching a disturbance in the western Gulf of Mexico that has a 50 percent chance of becoming Tropical Storm Kirk in the next two days, according to the National Hurricane Center.

As of 5 P.M. Wednesday, the "storm of a lifetime" continued to make its way toward the Carolina coast, with max winds of up to 120 miles per hour.

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

Florence is expected to produce heavy and excessive rainfall, NOAA noted.

Forecasters have warned that Storm Helene could pose a danger to life when it bears down on the United Kingdom and Republic of Ireland next week.

Three feet of storm surge moving onto the coastline will result in higher tides and higher water moving onshore.
