Florence isn’t alone. More tropical storms are brewing

Florence isn’t alone. More tropical storms are brewing

Overnight, Isaac began to fall apart as it encountered increasing atmospheric winds that help shred storms and neared dry air.

The storm remained a Category 2 hurricane with maximum sustained winds of 100 miles per hour.

The briefing said Florence "is a large hurricane" with hurricane-force winds extending 80 miles from its center and tropical storm-force winds extending 195 miles from the eye of the storm. It was located about 345 miles east of Guadaloupe.

Tropical Storm Isaac is moving west in the Caribbean and will regain enough strength to become a hurricane again, forecasters said Tuesday. 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.

"It's not a zero event".

Varlack Ventures announced Tuesday evening that it anticipates the ports will be closed at 8 a.m. Thursday, and said it will announce the last runs between Cruz Bay and Red Hook after Wednesday's 1 p.m. advisories.

The turbulent weather is coming off the back of one of number of major storms now raging in the Atlantic, another of which, Hurricane Florence, has caused mass evacuations on the east coast of United States this week. "It's a nasty interplay that makes it very hard".

Gradual weakening is forecast during the next 48 hours, but Olivia is expected to remain a tropical storm as it moves over the main Hawaiian Islands.

WIND: Tropical storm conditions are expected on Martinique, Dominica, and Guadeloupe by tonight or early Thursday. Earlier forecasts showed that the storm was slated to directly hit around North and SC.

STORM SURGE: Some coastal flooding is possible in areas of onshore winds.

A small-craft warning means in this case that surface winds greater than or equal to 25 knots and seas equal to or greater than 3 metres (10ft) are already affecting or expected to affect the marine area.

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. Tropical storm conditions are possible within the tropical storm watch area, also beginning late this morning. It should dissipate by early next week, the hurricane center said. Flash flooding is going to be a big issue soon - certainly catastrophic.

Tropical Storm Isaac made its closest approach to St. Croix Thursday night, passing nearly 200 miles to the south and having no apparent impact on the territory as it made its leisurely way across the Caribbean. A trough of low pressure over the western Gulf of Mexico is also producing disorganised showers and thunderstorms this morning, which the NHC had a 50% chance of becoming a storm.

Hurricane Helene is likely to head towards the United Kingdom, meteorologists are predicting.
