Hurricane Florence strengthened into a Category 4 hurricane Monday

Hurricane Florence strengthened into a Category 4 hurricane Monday afternoon

Hurricane Warnings are in effect from the South Santee River in SC to Duck, North Carolina.

But they weaken rapidly when they travel over land or colder ocean waters.

However, hurricane watches are in effect for Guadeloupe, Martinique and Dominica, while storm warnings have been issued for Antigua, Montserrat and St. Kitts and Nevis. A 77-year-old man was apparently knocked down by the wind and died after going out to check on his hunting dogs, Lenoir County authorities said.

As soon as Deal made the declaration, Coweta County Emergency Management Agency director Jay Jones said he sprang into action.

But the Met Office says Helene could be heading east towards the south-western corners of the United Kingdom, with the tip of Ireland among the worst affected.

Joyce has maximum sustained winds of 45 miles per hour (75 kph) and is expected to become a tropical storm and to strengthen by Thursday.

Rain chances Friday and Saturday are only at 20 percent after the noon. In the past, confusion and false rumors have arisen when storm advisories broadcast from radio stations were mistaken for warnings concerning an entirely different storm located hundreds of miles away. "We'll be on the northwest side of storm".

"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". "It's still way way too early to tell".


"I can not overstate it: Floodwaters are rising, and if you aren't watching for them you are risking your life", Gov. Roy Cooper said. "People still have time to gather supplies, fill prescriptions, make sure their pets and loved ones will be safe".

Tropical Storm Helene, Hurricane Joyce, Florence and Mangkhut pose a threat to life from one stretch of the globe to the other.

With Hurricane Florence, numerous coastline will see water levels from the storm surge rise over 3 feet, with some families seeing over 9 feet of water near their homes. The area expected to be impacted includes Matagorda, Brazoria and Galveston Counties.

More than 2 feet of rain already had fallen in places, and the drenching went on and on as Florence, a hurricane-turned-tropical storm, practically parked itself over the two states.

Coastal watches and warnings have been canceled.

If the hurricane continues in a southwesterly direction, the Georgia coastline and inland counties will experience the outer bands of the storm, meteorologists said.

Residents especially those in flood and landslide prone areas are to be vigilant; and small craft operators and sea bathers are advised to exercise caution due to locally rough seas.
