Ocean City Prepares for Impacts of Hurricane Florence

Hurricane Helene is not expected to pose any danger as it turns northward in the Atlantic Ocean

Maximum sustained winds remain near 60 miles per hour (95 km/h) with higher gusts.

Florence, which was downgraded to a Category 1 hurricane overnight, officially made landfall near Wrightsville Beach shortly before 7:45 a.m.

"Isaac has become less organized and is now a weak Tropical Storm".

The NHC is estimating that as many as 20 inches of rain could fall in some places along the southern North Carolina coast while bringing in excess of 10 inches of rain in parts of SC.

Severe gales are expected in the United Kingdom, moving from the south west to the north west.

The Met Office assured that Tropical Storm Isaac poses no direct threat to Trinidad and Tobago as it continues to move away from the Lesser Antilles.

Meanwhile, the projections for rain are growing, adding to growing concerns about flooding across the two states: Coastal North Carolina now expects 20-30 inches, with isolated areas of 40 inches projected in SC. Given its expected slow speed once it rolls ashore, they warned the heavy rain and storm could spread across a wide area.

People have been ordered to evacuate the Carolinas ahead of strong winds and heavy rain as the hurricane lands.

A turn toward the northeast with a rapid increase in forward motion is forecast to occur over the weekend.

The National Hurricane Center (N.H.C.) in its 5:00 p.m. advisory said all tropical storm watches and warnings for Isaac have been discontinued, news that will be welcomed by interests in the Caribbean. Tropical storm conditions are possible within the tropical storm watch area, also beginning late this morning. Swells generated by the storm could produce life-threatening surf and rip current conditions.

Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 105 miles (165 km) from the center. Tropical storm watches are in effect for Montserrat, St. Kitts and Nevis, Antigua, and Saba and St. Eustatius.

Right now, it is looking more likely that Florence will stall VERY close to shore Thursday evening, delaying a technical landfall of the eye/center to sometime Friday or even early Saturday.
