Isaac downgraded but still watched

A number of hurricane and tropical storm watches have been issued for Tropical Storm Isaac

Now a major hurricane with winds of 115 miles an hour and increasing, the National Hurricane Center says Florence's forecast track will take the system over the southwestern Atlantic Ocean between Bermuda and the Bahamas Tuesday and Wednesday, and Florence will approach the coast of SC or North Carolina on Thursday. 12 is it moved closer to the Caribbean.

The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill's student paper, The Daily Tar Heel, reported that class has been canceled and students have been encouraged to leave the Chapel Hill area before the storm hits.

A Tropical Storm Watch is in effect for Montserrat, St Kitts, Nevis, Saba and St Eustatius.

A tropical storm warning continues for Martinique, Dominica and Guadeloupe.

Hurricane Florence may hit North Carolina
People in areas vulnerable to the risky hurricane, particularly those in coastal regions, have fled ahead of the storm. At least 12,000 people had taken refuge in 126 emergency shelters, Cooper said, with more facilities being opened.

As three powerful storms march one by one across the Atlantic Ocean toward the U.S. East Coast and the Caribbean, a fourth is getting ready to roll over the Hawaiian Islands. The tropical storm is tracking to the west at 20 miles per hour with top winds of 60 miles per hour with higher gusts. Depending on the track after Friday, the threat for strong winds could spread beyond the Watch area across southeast SC and parts of southeast Georgia Saturday. "We are still in the peak of the 2018 hurricane season; therefore, residents must continue to remain vigilant, monitor the weather and ensure emergency supply kits are prepared with up to ten days of supplies". While development into a tropical depression is not expected since the system is nearly onshore, heavy rainfall and gusty winds are likely across portions of northeastern Mexico and Texas through Saturday. It does have the potential to slow down as it approaches land from Thursday through Friday.

But according to the NHC, "Isaac is forecast to gradually weaken over the next few days, and could degenerate into a tropical wave at any time".

An update from the National Hurricane Centre (NHC) said today several inches of rain were expected in the Azores.

Less rain is predicted for St. Thomas, St. John and Water Island. Indeed, stalling just off the coast on Friday could increase the storm surge, which is now expected to be as high as 14 feet.
