Hurricane Florence 5 PM Wednesday Update

Hurricane Florence Won’t Be The Last To Hit The US This Season As More Form In Its Wake

Tropical Storm Isaac made its closest approach to St. Croix Thursday night, passing nearly 200 miles to the south and having no apparent impact on the territory as it made its leisurely way across the Caribbean.

Since then, Isaac has meandered in the Caribbean Sea and, as a depression, lashed the Lesser Antilles Friday morning with rain squalls and 35 miles per hour winds. Satellite images show very little left as a recognizable tropical storm. As Tropical Storm Helene to the east-northeast of Joyce moves away, Joyce is expected to turn northeastward with an increase in forward speed during the next 24 h, followed by an eastward turn after 48 h. Tropical storm watches are in effect for Montserrat, St. Kitts and Nevis, Antigua, and Saba and St. Eustatius.

"At this time, Tropical Storm Isaac is not considered an imminent threat to the Cayman Islands but that could change", said Tara Rivers, Minister responsible for HMCI.

Poland to not support European Union sanctions against Hungary
Ms Sargentini's report into Hungary's ruling Fidesz party alleged such actions were "a clear breach of the values of our union". They strongly deny it was to secure Hungary's support in the Brexit process or out of admiration for the country's leader.


With the expected track bringing a weakening Florence along the eastern and eventually northern outskirts of the CSRA, that means the rain/wind will be the most extreme in those areas.

Elsewhere in the nation, the East Coast is preparing for Hurricane Florence, which will be a major storm.

Forecasters on Friday warned of flash flooding and wind gusts of 25 to 40 miles per hour.

Anyone with information that could assist the police investigation is asked to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 . The couple called police after seeing a breaking news alert yesterday warning of incidents across the country.


The Portuguese weather service said that wind gusts of up to 74 mph are possible by the weekend in the Azores, an island chain about 850 miles west of Portugal. "We are still in the peak of the 2018 hurricane season; therefore, residents must continue to remain vigilant, monitor the weather and ensure emergency supply kits are prepared with up to ten days of supplies". Along the coast, large waves will accompany the surge.

The National Hurricane Center issues new updates at 8 AM, 11 AM, 2 PM, 5 PM, 8 PM, 11 PM, 2 AM, and 5 AM.

Rainfall totals of 50 to 100 millimetres are possible, as well as isolated amounts up to 150 millimetres, therefore, flash-flooding is likely over low-lying and flood-prone areas.
