Hurricane Helen latest: Atlantic storm to spark sunshine across Britain

Forecasters urge caution as storm churns in Gulf

Hurricane Helene is forecast to weaken over the eastern Atlantic Ocean, and interests in the Azores islands should monitor the storm's progress.

"And we're not done yet", Graham said, adding that some hard-hit areas could get an additional 15 to 20 inches because the storm was moving so slowly.

A mother and baby were killed when a tree fell on a house, according to a tweet from Wilmington police.

Helene had maximum sustained winds of 70 miles per hour and was moving north-northeast at 22 miles per hour.

The storm is moving at 17 miles per hour to the west and has 60 miles per hour winds. Rescue crews used boats to carry more than 360 people from rising water in the river town of New Bern, North Carolina, while many of their neighbours awaited help. Both storms should weaken, but Helene is still expected to "pack a punch", according to the Express.

It's a detail that almost got lost among all the wind, rain and storm surge data sent out by the National Hurricane Center on Wednesday.

Accuweather meteorologists said the storm's most likely path would take it toward the southern or central Texas coast, though they and others cautioned the forecast could change quickly.

For this reason, all warnings and storm surveillance for the Lesser Antilles have been raised.

The remnants of the storm could even end up bringing some drier conditions to the south west of the UK.

"Overcast with moderate to heavy rain for south-west England, Wales, Ireland, north-west England and Scotland with fresh to strong and gusty southerly winds through the afternoon and evening".

A weather warning for wind has been issued ahead of the arrival of Hurricane Helene in the United Kingdom next week, with injuries and danger to life a possibility.

The National Weather Service says more than 10 million residents in three states are under a storm watch or warning because of Hurricane Florence. "There will be some rain but at the moment it doesn't look as though that's going to be the issue".

Some predictions cautioned not to rule out the possibility of Isaac restrengthening as it passes over the warm western Caribbean waters into the equally warm Gulf of Mexico.

"WE ARE COMING TO GET YOU", the city tweeted around 2 a.m.
