A Hurricane Warning is in effect for...

Tropical Storm Warnings are now in effect for Martinique, Dominica and Guadeloupe.

A Tropical Storm Watch which had been issued for St. Kitts and Nevis, Montserrat, Barbuda and Antigua was also expected to be discontinued by Thursday evening. It's not purely tropical in nature and will stay in the open waters of the Atlantic before dissipating.

Hurricane Florence isn't the only storm threatening lives and property around the world. Persons located within these areas should take all necessary actions to protect life and property from rising water and the potential for other risky conditions. In South Carolina, local officials reported 300,000 had already evacuated the coast as of Wednesday. A watch is typically issued 48 hours before tropical-storm-force winds are expected to arrive, which makes outside preparations hard or unsafe - and Tropical-storm-force winds are possible within the tropical storm watch area today.

A Hurricane Warning means that hurricane conditions are expected somewhere within the warning area. That would make five named storms traversing the Atlantic simultaneously, for the first time on record.

Elsewhere in the Atlantic, there are two areas being watched for potential tropical development.

We'll continue to monitor Florence, but as far as our weather is concerned, all of the storm is expected to stay south of our region through the weekend.




Isaac had winds of 60 miles per hour, and the hurricane center said gradual weakening is anticipated over the next few days.

Although Florence was downgraded from Category 4 status, it is still considered an extremely risky storm with maximum sustained winds near 125 miles per hour.

Florence, which was downgraded to a Category 1 hurricane overnight, officially made landfall near Wrightsville Beach shortly before 7:45 a.m. Some fluctuations in strength will be possible through Thursday morning.

Given the lack of deep convection to sustain the cyclone, continual gradual weakening is expected. A NOAA hurricane hunter aircraft will soon fly through the centre of Isaac, and will provide a better assessment of the intensity of the tropical storm and the extent of its winds.

The estimated minimum central pressure is 1000 mb (29.53 inches).

"Winds are likely to gust to 55-65 miles per hour quite widely in the warning area, with possible gusts of 70-80 miles per hour in exposure".
