Powerful hurricane could be headed to southeast US

Powerful hurricane could be headed to southeast US

Florence is now 1,600 miles from the East Coast and moving toward Bermuda, the National Hurricane Center said.

US residents from SC to Virginia were warned that Florence posed an increasing risk of life-threatening coastal storm surge, as well as flooding from heavy rainfall inland.

So vehicles transporting those agricultural goods will not have to be weighed along North Carolina highways, temporarily, while the state of emergency is in effect. A state of emergency was declared in sc and Virginia to give officials and residents enough time to prepare for Florence if it hits the area.

Gov. Henry McMaster told a news conference Sunday that people should "pretend, assume, presume that a major hurricane is going to hit right smack dab in the middle of SC and is going to go way inshore".

Virginia, North Carolina and SC have declared states of emergency in preparation for Florence's potential impact.

At 5 o'clock Sunday morning, the Department of Disaster Management (DDM) said Tropical Storm Isaac was located near latitude 14.5 north and longitude 38.1 west.

The storm could cause unsafe surf and rip currents along parts of the United States east coast across the weekend as it swirls across the Atlantic, followed by tropical depression Nine. Tropical storm force winds still blow 80 miles from Helene's center.

Almost all of the North Carolina and SC coasts are included in the cone of uncertainty for the storm and the latest model Saturday night showed the storm making landfall in Wilmington.

The hurricane centre said it was still too early to predict its exact path.

The storm crossed the hurricane threshold Sunday morning, with winds climbing just above the 75 miles per hour threshold.

Passengers arriving at Philadelphia airport report illness after flights from Paris, Germany
Emergency response crews gathered outside the plane amid reports of ill passengers aboard a flight from Dubai . The Port Authority of NY said the plane was taken to a separate park of the airport.

Virginia, in fact, is now included in the National Hurricane Center's forecast cone (shown above).

"If you live anywhere along the East Coast, you want to be paying attention, because even if you (aren't at) the main landfall point, you're still likely to have impacts", including heavy rain and rip currents, she said.

"But anyone living on the East Coast should place close attention in the next few days to where this storm goes and what it does".

Though weakened to a tropical storm, Florence was expected to regain hurricane strength as it neared Bermuda. It was 1,680 miles from the Windward Islands with 35 mph winds, creeping west-northwest at 6 mph.
