Hurricane Helene: All you need to know about storm

Forecasters urge caution as storm churns in Gulf

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

She said: "Helene is moving up from the Atlantic towards us". Tropical depressions are organized systems but with sustained wind speeds less than 39 miles per hour. Gusts of wind expected will be around 55-65 miles per hour (88-104 km/h).

"Don't bet your life on riding out a monster", stated Roy Cooper, North Carolina governor.

And the storm is heading straight for the United Kingdom, with landfall expected early next week.

Maui Mayor Alan Arakawa said he hoped the effects of the storm would be limited. Forecasters said the torrents could continue for days, touching off disastrous flooding.

Some towns have already been soaked by more than 2 feet (60 centimetres) of drenching rains, and forecasters warned that totals could reach 3 1/2 feet (1 metre), unleashing floods well inland through early next week.

"This will likely be the storm of a lifetime for portions of the Carolina coast", the National Weather Service spokesperson in Wilmington, North Carolina said Tuesday night, according to ABC News.

The Hurricane Centre says Isaac is almost completely devoid of deep convection at the moment and is not trackable in radar data from Guadeloupe and Martinique. A small-craft warning and a high-surf advisory will be in effect from 6 p.m., today until 6 a.m. Friday, September 14.

Florence's forward movement during the day slowed to a near-standstill - sometimes it was going no faster than a human can walk - and that enabled it to pile on the rain. That's enough to fill the Chesapeake Bay or cover the entire state of Texas with almost 4 inches (10 centimeters) of water, he calculated. North Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, had about 7 inches.

Beyond that brief period, the cyclone should weaken a bit as it completes extratropical transition while passing just to the northwest of the Azores Islands and traversing much cooler waters.

"Overcast with moderate to heavy rain for south-west England, Wales, Ireland, north-west England and Scotland with fresh to strong and gusty southerly winds through the afternoon and evening".

"WE ARE COMING TO GET YOU", the city of New Bern tweeted around 2 a.m.
