First Major Hurricane Of Season May Take Aim On Area

Storm season peaks: Hurricane Florence still far from landfall, uncertainty remains for East Coast

"Little change in intensity is expected during the next day or so, but restrengthening is forecast over the weekend, " the hurricane center's advisory said. The first will be the trough moving across the North Atlantic this weekend, and the second being the massive ridge that develops over the northeast and over-top of Florence next week.

Anyone along the east coast from Georgia, to SC, needs to "keep tabs" on Florence. Many of us are not prepared for what it would be like if a hurricane made landfall here. Gradual restrengthening is forecast over the weekend, and Florence is expected to become a hurricane again by Sunday and a major hurricane early next week.

At 6am today, Florence was 840 miles east-southeast of the island, moving west at 9mph.

Syria: Donald Trump says slaughter in Idlib would make USA 'very angry'
The Syrian government denies ever using chemical weapons during its seven-year-long civil war. Let's kill the fucking lot of them", Trump reportedly said.

It is too soon to determine what, if any, other impacts Florence could have on the U.S. East Coast next week, the hurricane center added. Sustained winds had slowed to 65 miles per hour.

The Emergency Measures Organisation is monitoring the storm's track. It is not yet known if Florence will make landfall.

But increasing wind shear off the Atlantic interfered with the storm building, weakening the beast to a tropical storm with 65mph winds on Friday.

Three People Missing After Colorado River Boat Collision
In the high-speed collision passengers were ejected and both vessels sunk, said the Mohave County Sheriff's Office . Divers have been sent out into the river's waters, which can range from shallow to 30 feet (9 meters) deep.

The Bermuda Weather Service warned winds of tropical-storm strength are possible from Monday night, but Florences most significant impact on the island was likely to be rough southeasterly swells producing hazardous surf, especially on the South Shore.

Off the coast of Africa, two waves continued to become better organized and could potentially become Helene and Isaac, the season's eight and ninth named storms. "We're just in kind of a normal operating mode for any September in hurricane season".

Florence was a Category 3 hurricane on Thursday morning and is expected to remain a strong hurricane through next week, according to the National Hurricane Center.

Emergency on US Gulf Coast as Storm Gordon strikes
Miami Beach Police said via Twitter that the Labor Day holiday was "NOT a beach day", with rough surf and potential rip currents. Gordon has been marching up from the Florida keys, lashing south Florida with rain and tropical storm-force winds.

The storm's path has indeed proven tricky to predict: While previous tracks called for Florence to take a more north-northwesterly approach, the latest track shows a flatter, more northwestern and western path.
