Isaac continues to advance, some watches and warnings issued

Tropics erupt as Florence, Helene and Isaac all churn in the Atlantic

Meanwhile, Hurricane Florence was 580 miles south, south east of Bermuda with winds of 115 mph and strengthening into a major storm.

Officials in Virginia, North Carolina, and SC have issued emergency warnings ahead of Florence's possible landfall.

The NHC said that Isaac is located near latitude 14.6 North, longitude 49.7 West and is moving towards the west near 16 miles per hour.

Hurricane Florence continues to grow in size and magnitude as it barrels toward the U.S. East Coast.

Hurricanes Florence, Isaac and Helene are all gaining strength as they churn through warm waters in the Atlantic Ocean towards eastern U.S. states and Caribbean islands. A Category 5 storm has the potential to cause catastrophic damage.

SOUTHEASTERN N.C. - The National Hurricane Center's next update on Hurricane Florence won't be posted until 5 p.m., but the National Weather Services's Wilmington office is reminding people to stay cautious at local beaches.

The Category 4 storm destroyed 15,000 buildings and killed 19 people in North Carolina.

In addition, the National Hurricane Center said that it will likely issue watches for "life-threatening storm surge" across three states. Even if you've ridden out storms before, this one is different.

The center of the massive storm is then forecast to meander Thursday, Friday and Saturday over a stretch of coastline saturated by rising seas, inundating several states and triggering life-threatening floods.

Feltgen said it's important that people don't get "hung up on the cone", and prepare for the possibility of impacts in areas outside of it.

Hurricane Florence is predicted to slam into the US East Coast as a "major" storm.

Trump has declared states of emergency for North and SC and Virginia, and canceled campaign events Thursday and Friday in anticipation of the storm. Winds began picking up across the main islands Tuesday afternoon, and tropical storm conditions are expected across the state beginning Tuesday night. "We just happen to be right in the middle". 2018 is on track to be a slight above-average year for the basin, with 23 named storms thus far, two of which - Barijat, and the super typhoon Mangkhut - are headed for the southern coast of China or northern Vietnam later this week into thew weekend.

The hurricane's impacts could range from a strong storm surge to flooding from torrential rainfall and hurricane-force winds. With little wind shear to pull the storm apart, hurricane-strength winds have been expanding to 40 miles (64 kilometers) from the eye of the storm, and tropical-storm-force winds 150 miles from the center.

Unlike the Atlantic and eastern Pacific basins, tropical storm season never ends in the western Pacific.

But Hurricane Florence is not alone in the Atlantic Ocean.

Hurricane Florence is bearing down on the East Coast, bringing 105 miles per hour winds and a risk of flooding.
