Meteorologist's Reaction to Hurricane Florence: 'Wow'

Meteorologist's Reaction to Hurricane Florence: 'Wow'”

Isaac is located about 1,150 miles east of the Windward Islands and has maximum sustained winds of 75 mph, the NHC said in its latest update Monday. He estimated that about one million people will be affected by order, including residents and visitors.

By noon EDT on Monday, Florence had top sustained winds of 130 miles per hour (195 kph).

A tropical storm becomes a hurricane when maximum sustained winds reach 74 miles per hour. Florence has maximum sustained winds of 105 miles per hour, though that number is likely to increase as the storm strengthens.

"Florence is forecast to rapidly strengthen to a major hurricane by Monday, and is expected to remain an extremely risky major hurricane through Thursday", the NHC said in an advisory issued at 9:00 pm (local time) Sunday.

Florence is the third hurricane of the 2018 Atlantic hurricane season, after Hurricane Chris (Category 1) and Hurricane Beryl (Category 2), which formed in early July but didn't make landfall.

Hurricane Florence is expected to "bring life-threatening storm surge, tropical storm force winds, heavy rains and the potential for tornadoes" to Dare and other coastal counties, said the National Weather Service.

North Carolina's governor urged people to learn what evacuation routes to take and put fuel in their vehicles in case they're ordered to leave.

The University of North Carolina Wilmington announced it has canceled classes and issued a voluntary evacuation for students starting at noon today.

"We here in North Carolina are bracing for a hard hit", Cooper said Monday.

Over the weekend, the governors of Virginia, North Carolina and SC declared states of emergency, according to CNN.

North Carolina officials started getting bulldozers and chain saws ready.

"As we have seen with hurricanes in most recent years, such as Lane in Hawaii earlier this summer and Harvey last year in Texas, feet of rain can fall when these tropical storms stall", Sosnowski said.

Roy Cooper said he had asked President Trump for a federal disaster declaration ahead of the storm.

This morning, NOAA tweeted a video from the GOES-East weather satellite, also known as GOES-16, showing the storm's eye churning through the Atlantic. "We are taking Hurricane Florence seriously".

Florence is the first major hurricane to threaten the eastern United States this year as the Atlantic hurricane season hits its peak.

Helene is now located in the tropical Atlantic, off the west coast of Africa.

Hurricane Helene, was spinning in the Atlantic off West Africa's Cape Verde islands with 85-mph (140-kph) winds on Monday, but did not appear to pose an immediate threat to land.
