  • Tropical Storm Isaac is expected to be at hurricane strength when it reaches the Lesser Antilles on Thursday

A National Weather Service satellite monitoring Hurricane Florence has recorded a wave reaching 83 feet in the storm churning in the Atlantic Ocean.

Tropical-storm force winds have been battering the Outer Banks and SE coastal NC for most of the afternoon, but as Hurricane Florence veers closer to the Carolinas coastline, hurricane-force winds are also inching closer to land.

The Met Office said that the storm's exact course was uncertain but very strong winds are expected, initially for parts of southwest England and west Wales, then later southwest Scotland and the southeast... As Tropical Storm Helene to the east-northeast of Joyce moves away, Joyce is expected to turn northeastward with an increase in forward speed during the next 24 h, followed by an eastward turn after 48 h.

No tropical storm/hurricane watches or warnings are in effect for Barbados.

The Met Office said it would continue to closely monitor the progress of Isaac and would update the public as needed.

A Tropical Storm Watch which had been issued for St. Kitts and Nevis, Montserrat, Barbuda and Antigua was also expected to be discontinued by Thursday evening.

A wind gust at the Wilmington airport was clocked at 105 miles per hour (nearly 170 kph), the highest since Hurricane Helene in 1958.

The ocean is moving inland ahead of Florence as storm surge begins to flood the Carolinas coast, according to the NHC.

The storm is expected to produce 3 to 5 inches of rain across Martinique, Dominica, and Guadeloupe, with near 10 inches possible in isolated areas, forecasters said.

Numerous communities throughout the region have issued either mandatory or voluntary evacuation orders.

Florence is now 485 miles from Wilmington, North Carolina.

The U.S. National Hurricane Center (NHC) provided the latest update on Hurricane Florence at 8 a.m. on September 12. However, cloudiness and showers trailing Tropical Depression Isaac will continue to affect the Lesser Antilles including Saint Lucia during the next 24 hours.

Everyone's attention has been focused on Florence, but the statistical peak of the Atlantic hurricane is certainly living up to its reputation this year.

Met Office spokesman Grahame Madge said the level-one yellow alert could be upgraded depending on the extremity of the storm.
