Florence isn’t alone. More tropical storms are brewing

The NHC at 11 a.m. on September 12 has issued warnings for Tropical Storm Isaac, which is still moving west about 420 miles east of the island of Martinique.

The yellow warning is in place from 6pm on Monday until midday on Tuesday, with the impact limited to the south east of the province.

While now classified as a hurricane, Helene will be downgraded to a storm by the time it reaches the shores of Northern Ireland.

"Rainfall: "2-4" in the CSRA, 3-7" in the central Midlands, 6-10" in northern forecast area.

As with most investment decisions by the Amazon founder, this one was likely grounded in data and science. Gates did not fully throw himself into philanthropy until he stepped down as CEO of Microsoft in 2000.


Isaac is forecast to gradually weaken over the next few days, and could degenerate into a tropical wave at any time.

Far from this hurricane parade on the other side of the globe, Tropical Storm Olivia is flying solo east of Hawaii. Maximum sustained winds for Isaac are near 70 miles per hour.

The Met Office issued two "yellow" alerts on Friday as the storm began creeping towards south-western corners of the United Kingdom and the tip of Ireland. Tropical storm conditions are possible within the tropical storm watch area, also beginning late this morning. Little change in strength is expected over the next several hours.

Readings of 15 miles per hour were already being recorded in Emerald Isle, a popular beach town on Bogue Banks near Cape Lookout. The storm is now moving northwest at 15 miles per hour.

Mix-messages on next round of talks on US-China trade war
The Trump administration is poised to hit China, America's largest trading partner, with another $200 billion in tariffs. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin has extended an invitation to talks to his counterparts in Beijing.


Meanwhile, the projections for rain are growing, adding to growing concerns about flooding across the two states: Coastal North Carolina now expects 20-30 inches, with isolated areas of 40 inches projected in SC.

The storm is likely to die out by Wednesday. "Intermittent rain bands are expected on St. Croix as Isaac passes south of the big island".

It is looking more likely that the CSRA could see wind and heavy rain from the storm this weekend into early next week.

Meteorologists have given Hurricane Florence, which is now heading towards the U.S., a category four level strength, meaning the storm could cause major structural damage costing millions.
