US East Coast braces as Florence forecast to intensify into major hurricane

Here's what David Epstein is saying about Hurricane Florence

Isaac, which became a tropical storm Saturday afternoon, was intensifying and expected to become a hurricane, the National Hurricane Center said Sunday.

The center of the hurricane is forecast to move across the Atlantic Ocean between Bermuda and the Bahamas tomorrow and Wednesday (Sept. 11-12), before approaching the southeastern coast of the US on Thursday.

Governors in Virginia, North Carolina and SC have all declared states of emergency over the past two days in anticipation of the storm.

The hurricane center said, "All indications are that Florence will be an extremely unsafe Category 4 hurricane while it moves over the western Atlantic toward the southeastern United States".

SC coastal areas can expect tropical storm force winds by Thursday morning on the storm's latest track, according to John Quagliariello from the National Weather Service in Columbia.

Hurricane-force winds are extending 25 miles out from the center "and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 125 miles", said the National Hurricane Center.

Based off the latest forecast track from the NHC, Florence will approach the southeast USA coast by Thursday.

For Central Florida, it is becoming likely that Florence will bring significant wave activity in the Atlantic, along with a unsafe high rip current threat and possible coastal erosion.

Florence strengthened to Category 1 hurricane Sunday morning as the storm charted an uncertain path toward the Unites States' East Coast.

The other storms — Tropical Storm Isaac and Tropical Storm Helene — are both expected to become hurricanes Sunday or Monday.

Forecasters said it was too soon to determine the exact timing, location and magnitude of storm surges and flooding Florence will cause.

Hurricane Isaac is moving through the North Central Atlantic Ocean right now.

A Hurricane Watch is in effect for the Cabo Verde islands of Santiago, Fogo, and Brava, while a Tropical Storm Warning is in effect for the Cabo Verde islands of Santiago, Fogo, and Brava.

Satellite imagery indicated that the maximum sustained winds have increased to near 105 miles per hour with higher gusts.

Isaac could become a hurricane on later today or by Monday morning.

Isaac: As of the 5:00am advisory, Hurricane Isaac has maximum sustained winds of 75 miles per hour.

Hurricane Florence could be packing winds of up to 150mph when it crashes into North Carolina later this week.

The storm "is too powerful and its path is too uncertain to take any chances", South Carolina Governor Henry McMaster said in issuing his state´s emergency declaration.

Helene: The 5:00am advisory on Hurricane Helene has the storm with maximum sustained winds of 85 miles per hour.

"Isaac is a small hurricane and uncertainty in the forecast is higher than normal", the National Hurricane Center said.

The third system - tropical Storm Helene is also strengthening.
