Tropical depression forms in the Atlantic; three other disturbances tracked

Tropical Storm Kirk is located 465 south-southwest of the southernmost Cape Verde Islands and is moving to the west at 18 miles per hour (30 km/h). Leslie is only moving west at about 3 miles per hour and isn't expected to move very far in the next two days, forecasters say.

A North Carolina town inundated by river water after a levee breached is among the latest towns to feel the life-threatening punch of Hurricane Florence.

Florence has the potential to make landfall Thursday in North Carolina as a Category 4 hurricane with 140 miles per hour winds.

"It's got all the ingredients it needs to become a strong storm, a major hurricane, so we want you all to take this very seriously", WRAL meteorologist Kat Campbell said.

Local forecasters continue to monitor the progress of Tropical Depression #11 and Tropical Storm Kirk.

Subtropical Storm Leslie is not expected to be a threat to land.

Outside of the phone simply being bigger, it's the same ol' iPhone X form factor and design I've used for the past 11 months. Long story short: One iPhone XS Max survived being in a bowl of fresh water for 30 minutes with no visible damage.

The National Hurricane Center (NHC) said Kirk was 465 miles south of the Cabo Verde Islands. At that time, the system will be moving westward and then northwestward over the southwestern Atlantic Ocean, according to the center.

The Windward Islands of the eastern Caribbean are expected to be first the feel the impacts of the building storm. The environment over the next few days was expected to support some further intensification.

"The surface low associated with Florence became elongated and lost definition over the mid-Atlantic states, and evolved into a much larger weather system associated with a front that moved off the east coast earlier this week". However, they add it may begin weakening in the middle of the week.

Kirk does not pose a threat to the USA over the next eight days.

"The system we now have in the Tropical Weather Outlook near Bermuda is not the "remnant low" of Florence as the NWS office in Charleston stated in their tweet", said Michael J. Brennan in an email to McClatchy on Thursday night.
