  • Tropical Storm Gordon in Alabama

Mid September is peak hurricane season and it's not unusual to have multiple storms in the ocean at the same time.

The enormous waves were recorded in the northeast quadrant of the hurricane, which is the strongest area of the storm. Isaac also has the potential to bring 1-2 inches of rain to portions of St. Croix.

Olivia's maximum sustained winds are about 60 miles per hour, after the storm weakened from Category 1 strength, forecasters said. Tropical storms generate winds between 39 and 73 miles per hour, just below hurricane force. Here's how it breaks down: Expect a breezy and mostly dry day Friday, with increasing winds up to 20mph.

"The models indicate it will travel up the west side of the United Kingdom, before crossing Scotland and going out the north of Scotland, but that could change as the storm degrades and changes its habits".

National Hurricane Center: Florence about to make landfall in N. Carolina causing life-threatening storm surge. Tonight, we see some areas of patchy fog with temperatures slipping to near 60.

A National Weather Service satellite monitoring Hurricane Florence has recorded a wave reaching 83 feet in the storm churning in the Atlantic Ocean.

Britain is set to be hit by heavy rain ahead of Hurricane Helene's potentially disastrous gales.

By Friday evening, Florence was downgraded to a tropical storm, its winds weakened to 70 mph (112 kph) as it moved forward at 3 mph (6 kph) about 15 miles (25 kilometers) north of Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.

Millions prepare for potentially catastrophic Hurricane Florence
AccuWeather meteorologist Brett Rossi said the ground in North and SC and Virginia is already saturated from recent rains. Usually storms come to the Carolinas and mid-Atlantic from the south - and those usually curve safely out to sea.

Georgia, Virginia and North and SC have declared states of emergency.

He said the federal government and first responders are ready to assist, but that 'bad things can happen when you're talking about a storm this size'.

The National Hurricane Center is predicting the storm will produce "catastrophic flash flooding and significant river flooding".

Forecasters say the eye of Hurricane Florence is wobbling slowly southwestward just off the coast of southeastern North Carolina, near the border with SC.
