Hurricane Florence strengthens to Category 4 storm, threatens Southeast U.S.

Hurricane Florence strengthens to Category 4 storm, threatens Southeast U.S.”

The Charlotte region has a better than 50 percent chance of seeing tropical storm-force winds (between 39 and 73 mph) later this week, according to the latest forecasts from the National Hurricane Center.

"The fact that this storm and the hurricane modeling has been so consistent over the past few days, we do know we're in the bullseye for the storm", said Cooper.

The hurricane center's description of a Category 4 hurricane begins with "catastrophic damage will occur".

A forecast from the hurricane center projected that Florence will pick up speed in the coming days.

Hurricane Florence is on course for landfall later this week in the Carolinas. That storm was centred 185 km south southeast of the islands.

Hurricane Isaac has seriously weakened recently due to the wind shear in the Atlantic.

A photo taken from the International Space Station by astronaut Ricky Arnold shows Hurricane Florence over the Atlantic Ocean in the early morning hours of September 6, 2018.

"Those are the benchmark storms on the Carolina coastline, strong Category 4 hurricanes, but the difference with this is it's not going to move fast". It is over warm water and a favorable upper level environment so rapid strengthening is forecast and Florence is forecast to be a major hurricane Monday morning. Should the storm track more north and closer to the Virginia North Carolina border instead of the South and North Carolina border we could see the far outer rain bands reach southern New Jersey.

Horry and Georgetown counties shifted their operating conditions at noon Monday as Hurricane Florence continued to strengthen and head toward the Carolina coast.

"As we have seen with hurricanes in most recent years, such as Lane in Hawaii earlier this summer and Harvey last year in Texas, feet of rain can fall when these tropical storms stall", Sosnowski said.

The White House offered no official statement, but Trump did tweet his "deepest sympathies and respect" to McCain's family. On Friday, McCain announced his decision to discontinue treatment for the brain cancer that eventually led to his death.

The National Hurricane Center issued an alert Monday that there was "an increasing risk of life-threatening impacts from Florence, storm surge at the coast and freshwater flooding inland from prolonged and exceptionally heavy rainfall", according to the Virginia Department of Emergency Management. That scenario that would likely mean more impact in the Charlotte area.

Though no coastal advisories are yet in place, the update said that those warnings would likely be forthcoming.

"Florence is forecast to rapidly strengthen to a major hurricane by Monday, and is expected to remain an extremely risky major hurricane through Thursday", the NHC said in an advisory issued at 9:00 pm (local time) Sunday.

The National Hurricane Center is advising people in the hurricane's path to prepare for potentially life-threatening storm surges, freshwater flooding and damaging winds as Florence impacts the USA this week.

"With Hurricane Florence on its way, we determined that this is the safest decision", wrote Michael Glassner of the Trump Campaign in a statement.
