Meanwhile in the Pacific, Tropical Storm Olivia was close to Hawaii, where tropical storm warnings and watches are in effect, according to the Pacific Hurricane Center.

Bands of rain from Tropical Depression Isaac continue to drench the Lesser Antilles. "A NOAA buoy located about 80 miles (130 km) south of the center of Florence has recently reported sustained winds of 52 km (83 km/h) with a gust to 64 mph (104 km/h)".

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. It will continue to move to the west and away from the V.I. during the overnight hours.

Flash-flooding is likely over low-lying and flood-prone areas. When Isaac reaches the west-central Caribbean Sea in a couple of days, the shear may relax somewhat and the global models suggest that there will be an increase in mid-level moisture.

That's almost double the wave heights documented on Tuesday, when the NHC said satellites had observed "an expansive area of wave heights 12 feet or greater" circulating around Hurricane Florence and peak waves of 45 feet near its center.

A considerable portion of east coast residents are preparing for or evacuating from the category 2 hurricane to make landfall.

The fact both Hugo and Florence have rapidly strengthened to Category 4 hurricanes along the eastern seaboard in quiet years has caught the attention of hurricane researcher Jim Kossin. And the timing couldn't be more apt: Monday was the peak of the Atlantic hurricane season, when storm activity has historically been at its highest.

And Hurricane Florence will take aim at the Southeast coast of the United States late this week, likely as a major hurricane.

Mapp, who spoke with the National Weather Service and Virgin Islands Emergency Management Agency officials again this morning, said two to four inches of rain are expected on St. Croix beginning Thursday evening.

It is forecast to move north-westwards, passing the Azores Islands on Saturday and heading towards north-western Europe. Near the coast, the surge will be accompanied by large waves.
