Four storms swirling in Atlantic as Tropical Storm Joyce forms

Joyce forms in the Atlantic

The center's Tropical Analysis and Forecast Branch is tweeting about the phenomenon.

At the moment, Florence, Hurricane Isaac, and Hurricane Helene are all swirling in different parts of the ocean at the peak of hurricane season.

At 500 a.m. AST (0900 UTC), the center of Subtropical Storm Joyce was located near latitude 33.8 north, longitude 43.1 west.

Maximum sustained winds have decreased to near 40 miles per hour (65 km/h) with higher gusts.

This storm is lined up behind Florence in the Atlantic.

It is predicted the Carolinas could begin feeling tropical storm force winds early Thursday.

Of the Atlantic's two active hurricanes - Florence and Helene - Florence posed the greatest threat to land, as it neared the Carolinas and Virginia as a Category 3 hurricane.

"Meteorologists don't see any environmental factors that would help to weaken the storm", Weather Channel meteorologist Dale Eck said in an interview today.

The National Hurricane Center is predicting the storm will produce "catastrophic flash flooding and significant river flooding".

The storm is about 775 miles east of the Lesser Antilles. When Isaac reaches the west-central Caribbean Sea in a couple of days, the shear may relax somewhat and the global models suggest that there will be an increase in mid-level moisture. That funding can not be spent on disaster response, they said.

He says the time to flee Hurricane Florence is now. "Heed those warnings and evacuate if you're in one of the zones". "We have to prepare and prepare to the fullest possible extent", he told a news conference.

Florence is continuing to move west-northwest at 17 miles per hour, with winds in the 130 miles per hour range, but is giving hints of deviations, says the National Hurricane Center. More powerful hurricanes also bring higher-than-average storm surges, which can destroy coastal property.

Tornadoes: Tornadoes will be possible along and to the right of the track of Florence, including the Midlands, Pee Dee and Catawba Regions, this is especially in SC.

Charleston Mayor John Tecklenburg told CNN on Wednesday that the almost 135,000 residents of his historic coastal city should leave now before the storm arrives later in the week. In South Carolina, local officials reported 300,000 had already evacuated the coast as of Wednesday.
