  • Florence remains a powerful category four hurricane

As Hurricane Florence barreled across the Atlantic towards the East Coast, researchers were keeping a close watch.

The NHC said Helene could bring 2 inches to 4 inches of rain to the Azores with isolated amounts up to 8 inches and life-threatening flash flooding.

The storms themselves - with a calm "eye" at their center - can measure up to 1,000 kilometers (600 miles) across.

Tropical storm warnings have been issued for Martinique, Dominica, and Guadeloupe.

However, it's not too late to prepare for Hurricane Florence - or any other storm that may move through Coweta County.

Tropical Storm Helene, downgraded from a hurricane, is on its way and likely to impact the United Kingdom by Monday.

The Portuguese weather service said that wind gusts of up to 74 mph are possible by the weekend in the Azores, an island chain about 850 miles west of Portugal. "It wants to get stronger", he said of the storm.

As of 2 p.m., the slow-moving storm barely had Category 1 hurricane strength and was nearly at a standstill over southeastern North Carolina, according to the Associated Press.

Hurricane and tropical storm watches have been posted for several Caribbean islands as a weakening Tropical Storm Isaac continues its trek toward the Leeward and Windward Islands. More than 60 people had to be rescued in another town as a cinderblock motel collapsed at the height of the storm's fury.

No other tropical systems or areas of possible activity are now being monitored.

The storm brought high storm surge near 13 feet and flooding rain as far as 40 miles inland of the storm. In addition to wind impacts, there's going to be a risky storm surge ("wall of water" that arrives) and then persistent rainfall. Danger to life warnings include flying debris and large waves along the coast.

Hurricane Isaac was showing little change in strength as it moved toward the Windward Islands in the Lesser Antilles, while Hurricane Florence was expected to move over the southwestern Atlantic Ocean between Bermuda and the Bahamas by Wednesday. "Interests there should monitor the progress of this system, and refer to products from their local weather office", the NHC warned.
