Hurricane Florence PATH: Monster Hurricane could hit ANYWHERE in THESE lines

  • Overview of the tropical storms currently stirring in the Atlantic

Hurricane Florence will be the biggest threat out of all these tropical systems, now a major category 4 Hurricane with sustained winds of 140 miles per hour, moving west-northwest towards southeasten United States of America, with landfall expected along the Carolinas sometime on Thursday. The storm is expected to slow down and possibly stall near or over the coast on Friday.

In North Carolina, more than 250,00 people are set to be evacuated today from the northern Outer Banks. "It's going to destroy homes", said Jeff Byard, an official at the Federal Emergency Management Agency.

Over the next 36 hours, Florence's winds could reach 150 mph, the hurricane center says.

That said, much of the long-term forecast for Isaac was uncertain, the National Hurricane Center said Tuesday.

Duke Energy spokeswoman Grace Rountree says the utility doesn't forecast outages, but is "anticipating significant widespread outages from a storm of this magnitude".

Hurricanes Florence, Isaac and Helene are all gaining strength as they churn through warm waters in the Atlantic Ocean towards eastern USA states and Caribbean islands.

It has been a calmer than-normal tropical storm season up until this point, yet things are grabbing big: three hurricanes are beating in the Atlantic, with Hurricane Florence quickly moving toward the US East Coast.




With September fulfilling the promises of peak hurricane season, residents are reminded to take the appropriate precautions for hurricane season - such as having emergency kits ready and knowing your hurricane plan - even if the storms are not now projected to hit Northwest Florida.

Abbott also urged "all Texans" to take precautions for the storm. The storm is expected to strengthen a bit, but turn to the north in the central Atlantic.

Isaac was on a path that could take it to the Leeward or Windward islands, many of which are still struggling to recover from Hurricane Maria.

Florence could bring a deadly coastal storm surge, and inland flooding as far north as Virginia, the NHC said.

Hurricane Florence is now a Category 4 storm moving toward the west near 13 miles per hour.

Forecasters say the hurricane's strength is expected to fluctuate but it still will be a risky storm by the time it reaches the coast of SC or North Carolina on Thursday.

We'll just have to wait and see where all of them go. She said her house, built in 2009 in Buxton, North Carolina, is on a ridge and built to withstand a hurricane.

"You never know, there could be tree missiles coming from any direction", she said.
