Hurricane Hunter Flight Says Isaac Has Weakened Further

This is the five-day outlook from the National Hurricane Center

This is the five-day outlook from the National Hurricane Center

The GOES-East weather satellite, which keeps a constant eye on the East Coast and the Atlantic, has captured some breathtaking images of Hurricane Florence, Tropical Storm Isaac and Hurricane Helene approaching the Americas (in that order).

"A Tropical Storm Warning means that tropical storm conditions are expected somewhere within the warning area, in this case within 12 to 24 hours".

Isaac is moving toward the west near 15 miles per hour, and this general motion with a decrease in forward speed is expected for the next few days.

"As it tracks towards the United Kingdom it will degrade - it will become an ex-tropical storm". Isaac is expected to trudge westward, pushing past and well south of the Dominican Republic and Jamaica.

Hurricane Isaac is small in size as it heads toward the Lesser Antilles. As Hurricane Florence traveled across the ocean, its winds basically pile up water that is higher than the ordinary level of the sea.

Shepard Smith and Flaherty said reports showed storm surge from the system is likely to be felt dozens of miles inland, including along the Neuse River Basin - which stretches inward from New Bern toward Rocky Mount and Nashville, N.C.

Gas explosions, fires reported in Massachusetts towns
Methuen Police Chief Joseph Solomon said that there were so many fires at a particular time that you could not even see the sky. Some 400 people spent the night in shelters, and school was canceled Friday as families waited to return to their homes.

Florence is heading toward the southeastern USA - with an unusual journey.

Tropical storm warnings were issued for Martinique, Dominica, and Guadeloupe. Heavy rain and winds from Olivia downed trees, knocked out power and prompted evacuations of several homes on Hawaii's Maui island but spared the state widespread damage Wednesday.

Helene is now in the Atlantic Ocean following behind Hurricane Florence, which was expected to hit the eastern coast of the U.S. late Thursday or early Friday.

In the Atlantic, while Joyce is far out to sea and poses no immediate threat to land, 70-mph Helene is forecast to roar near the Azores on Saturday and Sunday, the National Hurricane Center said. It continues to move westward at 17 miles per hour. Interests along the northeastern Mexico and the coasts of Texas and Louisiana should monitor the progress of this system.

Met Office meteorologist Alan Deakin said: "Hurricane Helene may influence things in combination with an area of low pressure over the coming days".
