Three hurricanes churn the Atlantic; 1 could impact East Coast

Three hurricanes churn the Atlantic; 1 could impact East Coast

In September of 1998 there were 4 hurricanes in the Atlantic at the same time.

Gov. Larry Hogan made the announcement at a news conference Monday. "Florence is forecast to bring devastating rainfall and flooding from the coast to the Appalachians". The state's emergency management agency said it is "preparing for the possibility of a large-scale disaster".

Florence is heading toward the southeastern US - with an unusual journey. With winds of over 105mph, Florence is category 2 hurricane. He said the city's emergency operations center will be partially activated Wednesday and fully activated on Thursday.

Florence, a potentially life-threatening Category 4 hurricane, is on track to make landfall in North Carolina or SC on Thursday (Sept. 13).

Liz Browning Fox was planning to ride out the storm on the Outer Banks, defying evacuation orders.

While a developed storm would pose more of a threat to coastal Texas, it could still turn into a very risky flooding event for an already-drenched San Antonio.

For many people, the challenge could be finding a safe refuge: If Florence slows to a crawl just off the coast, it could bring torrential rains to the Appalachian mountains and as far away as West Virginia, causing flash floods, mudslides and other risky conditions.

The U.S. Navy is also taking precautions, with the U.S. Fleet Forces Command ordering almost 30 ships in the Hampton Roads area of the Virginia coast to head out to sea to avoid the storm. Florence is expected to remain an extremely risky major hurricane through Thursday.

Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit Tuesday urged citizens to be "fully prepared'" as Dominica was placed on a hurricane watch despite Hurricane Isaac being downgraded to a strong tropical storm.

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.”.

John Bolton threatens ICC with sanctions in virulent attack
If the global body doesn't listen, the Trump administration could ban ICC judges and prosecutors from entering the country. Bolton described the ICC as antithetical to American values and a threat to U.S. sovereignty and national security.

On the latest track, Florence is projected to make landfall somewhere along the Carolina coastline late Thursday night into early Friday.

But that's not all, there are two other disturbances out there as well.

At this statistical height of the Atlantic hurricane season, Florence was being trailed on east-to-west paths by Hurricane Helene near the Cabo Verde islands, and Tropical Storm Isaac.

Forecasts call for between 25 and 38 cm of rain in the hardest-hit areas, possibly more if the storm stalls over land, as expected, Graham said.

Preparations intensified up and down the densely populated coast.

As of noon ET Monday, Florence was moving at 13 mph, some 575 miles south-southeast of Bermuda the hurricane center said.

There are no coastal warnings or watches associated with the storm. "This is the craziest one".

The main concern continues to be Florence as the hurricane will be a direct threat to the US later this week. Hurricane Isaac, churning in the mid-Atlantic Ocean with wind speeds of around 75 miles per hour, is following closely behind Florence. "Don't get complacent just because you live inland! Flooding is the deadliest result of these storms". And out here we're so fragile.

"The water could overtake some of these barrier islands and keep on going". She said it was built in 2009 in Buxton, North Carolina, up on a ridge, and made to withstand a hurricane. "Already we're getting some overwash, the ocean is coming over 12", she said, referring to the islands' main road. "There is no way to be completely safe". Eastbound lanes of Interstate 26 heading into Charleston and USA 501 heading into Myrtle Beach will be reversed when the order takes effect.
