Storm Helene to unleash DAMAGING winds and TROPICAL air next week

The forecast track for Tropical Storm Isaac at 11 a.m

Isaac is expected to reach the islands, which remain under a tropical storm warning, by Thursday afternoon and cross the Caribbean through Saturday.

N.H.C. said at 5:00 p.m. that the center of Tropical Storm Isaac was located near latitude 14.9 North, longitude 63.2 West. Isaac is moving toward the west near 16 miles per hour (26 km/h), and this general motion with a decrease in forward speed is expected for the next few days.

Meanwhile, Isaac is a tropical storm that will eventually die out as it moves closer to the Yucatán Peninsula, according to Bridges. Then Florence is expected to move to the northwest toward Columbia, SC on Saturday, weakening as it does so, before continuing into the SC upstate by Sunday, undergoing further weakening. The tropical storm is tracking to the west at 20 miles per hour with top winds of 60 miles per hour with higher gusts.

Hurricane Olivia is heading towards Hawaii as Tropical Storm Paul is approaching the west coast of Mexico.

A storm surge warning was ordered for Myrtle Beach, South Carolina to Ocrakoke Inlet, North Carolina, in addition to the Pamlico Sound in North Carolina, the NHC said.

Screaming winds bent trees toward the ground and raindrops flew sideways as Florence's leading edge whipped the Carolina coast Thursday to begin an onslaught that could last for days, leaving a wide area under water from both heavy downpours and rising seas. "Storm surge is the main cause of the death and destruction associated with hurricanes", NBC News explained after Hurricane Ike hit Texas.

The National Hurricane Center said the storm's strength should continue through Thursday.

Tropical storm conditions are possible within the tropical storm watch area, also beginning late this morning.

No storm warnings have been posted yet for the territory, but tropical storm warnings are in effect for Martinique, Dominica and Guadeloupe.

Florence's forward movement during the day slowed to a near-standstill - sometimes it was going no faster than a human can walk - and that enabled it to pile on the rain.

The National Hurricane Center said Florence will eventually break up over the southern Appalachians and make a right hook to the northeast, its rainy remnants moving into the mid-Atlantic states and New England by the middle of next week.
