Hurricane Florence is producing waves as high as 83 feet

Hurricane Helene is not expected to pose any danger as it turns northward in the Atlantic Ocean 2 p.m. update: Florence within 110 miles of Wilmington

Tropical Storm Isaac is now located over the eastern Caribbean Sea and is forecast to move south of Jamaica on Sunday, as a Tropical Depression.

The US National Hurricane Centre in its 8 a.m. tropical storm update reported Tropical Storm Isaac's centre was 25 miles east of Dominica and 80 miles southeast of Guadeloupe.

The Barbados Meteorological Services continues to closely monitor the progress of Tropical Storm Isaac over the Atlantic.

It's a potentially catastrophic Category 4 storm with 130 miles per hour (215 kph) maximum sustained winds.

Officials were warning residents in the Cayman Islands to keep monitoring Tropical Storm Isaac Friday evening, after the unpredictable cyclone regained strength.

The storm is likely to die out by Wednesday, the forecaster said. Near the coast, the surge will be accompanied by large waves. "Life-threatening storm surge and rainfall expected".

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


All watches and warnings that had been issued on neighboring islands were canceled Thursday.

The NHC said, "A Tropical Storm Warning means that tropical storm conditions are expected somewhere within the warning area within 24 to 36 hours". "Prepare for long power outages".

Meanwhile, the projections for rain are growing, adding to growing concerns about flooding across the two states: Coastal North Carolina now expects 20-30 inches, with isolated areas of 40 inches projected in SC.

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.

Puerto Rico is still trying to recover from Hurricane Maria almost a year after the Category 4 storm hit. A hurricane hunter plane is scheduled to investigate the system Thursday.

"Wave heights to 83 ft were measured early this morning under the [northeast] quadrant of Hurricane Florence", tweeted the National Hurricane Center.
