Hurricane Helene: All you need to know about storm

Met Eireann update on tropical Storm Helene heading towards Ireland

Subtropical Storm Joyce has maximum sustained winds of near 45 miles per hour (75 km/h) with higher gusts.

Sen. Jeff Merkley of OR said the administration was taking money from FEMA's "response and recovery" to the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency at a time when Hurricane Florence is bearing down on the Southeast U.S. coast.

"Regardless of development, heavy rainfall and gusty winds are expected across portions of northeastern Mexico, Texas, and Louisiana on Friday and Saturday", the hurricane center said.

Florence is now 485 miles from Wilmington, North Carolina.

Hurricane-force winds (74-95 mph) are now extending out up to 70 miles from the center of the storm, and tropical-storm-force winds are being felt as much as 175 miles around the storm.

This storm is lined up behind Florence in the Atlantic.

Mr Bowles said winds would top 80mph in parts of the United Kingdom with heavy, fast moving rain.

A risky Hurricane Florence is steadily making its way to the U.S. East Coast.

At 11 a.m., the center of the system was about 190 miles east-southeast of Kingston, Jamaica. Strengthening is forecast through Wednesday.

Tropical storm warnings were issued for Martinique, Dominica, and Guadeloupe.

Hurricane Florence weakened to Category 2 storm overnight, but with sustained winds of 110 miles per hour, it was within 1 miles per hour of Category 3 and the wind field is expanding.

Alachua County Emergency Management Director John Shaw said he and others at the county Emergency Operations Center are monitoring Florence's track, along with other tropical systems, like Tropical Storm Isaac. Some flooding was forecast early in the day for parts of North Florida, but those forecasts were adjusted later to include high swells and minor coastal flooding at high tide.

From North Myrtle Beach to Cape Fear, and Cape Lookout to the Ocracoke Inlet, water could rise 6-9 feet.
