Hurricane Florence will be felt ‘statewide,’ North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper says

Weather forecasters now report that they believe Tropical Storm Florence will become a hurricane again as it approaches the East Coast of the United States.

The National Hurricane center said Saturday that Florence will start to rapidly intensify Sunday, and be a major hurricane by Tuesday.

On its current track, the storm could make landfall around the Carolinas on Thursday or Friday.

"All indications are that Florence will be an extremely risky Category 4 hurricane while it moves over the western Atlantic toward the southeastern United States", the hurricane center said.

Forecasters say Tropical Storm Florence has turned into a hurricane and is swirling toward the East Coast for what could be a direct hit toward the end of the week. Advisories warning of unsafe beach conditions or coastal flooding were in effect for parts of New Jersey, Delaware, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, and Florida.

As of early Monday, Isaac was about 1,230 miles east 1,305 miles (1,985 km) east of the Windward Islands with maximum sustained winds of 75 mph (120 kph), the NHC said.

Tropical Storm Helene is just off the African coast and tropical storm warnings have been issued for the southern Cabo Verde Islands.

Residents as far north as Virginia were warned that Florence posed an increasing risk of life-threatening coastal storm surge, as well as flooding from heavy rainfall inland should the slow-moving storm system stall over the Southeast.

The size of hurricane-force winds doubled over 12 hours from 30 to 60 miles across, the National Hurricane Center said Monday afternoon.

Dramatic Views of Hurricane Florence
Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 30 miles from the center and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 140 miles. The weather service estimates that the storm will take a sharp north turn into the middle of the Atlantic later in the week.

Storm surge and hurricane watches may be issued Tuesday morning for portions of southeastern USA states, the NHC said.

Citizens are also advised to remember that flash floods could happen at any time and that flooding is the most deadly and damaging part of any hurricane.

Tropical Depression Nine is expected to become Tropical Storm Isaac late Saturday.

Officials in North Carolina are already bracing for impact.

In Jacksonville, North Carolina, about 20 miles (32 kilometers) from the coast, some residents picked up hurricane supplies during their normal weekend shopping, The Daily News reported.

Two other storms also are churning in the Atlantic.

The Navy said all ships in Virginia's coastal Hampton Roads area were preparing to leave port for open seas.

Storms increase in frequency and intensity by mid-August and into September as temperatures in the Atlantic climb to their highest levels, Javaheri said.
