Hurricane Florence Could Pose Major Threat To East Coast Next Week

Hurricane Florence Could Pose Major Threat To East Coast Next Week

If Florence's track takes its farther west, it could push toward the East Coast with possible impacts on the area next Wednesday and Thursday.

Even if Florence stays out to sea, models show other systems developing over the Atlantic, nearly on cue as the hurricane season hits its peak Monday. Wherever the storm goes, beach-goers could see some impacts as early as this weekend. The storm reached major hurricane status Wednesday, peaking with maximum sustained winds of 130 miles per hour. On this path, Florence will track over the warm waters off the southeast USA coastline. That gives us some time to do our hurricane preps now.

"A west-northwestward motion with an increase in forward speed is expected by early next week and continue into middle part of next week".

"While it's still too early to know the storm's path, we know we have to be prepared", Cooper said in a new release. The storm's maximum sustained winds were 40 miles per hour and it was moving west at 12 miles per hour.

Just where the storm will head is still uncertain, but computer models used by the center's specialists to forecast track indicated a US landfall looked increasingly likely.

"However, with a high level of certainty, the East Coast will begin receiving fore-runner swells from Florence this weekend". It is not yet known if Florence will make landfall.

Steelers teammates turn on Le'Veon Bell: 'He f--ked us'
If he does decide to hold out until that date, Bell will lose slightly more than $8.5 million of his $14.544 million tag. After all, the Steelers rode Bell to the tune of 406 touches during 15 regular-season games in 2017.

"We're talking with our partners at the Red Cross, our sheltering partners and keeping them up to date on weather changes and the forecast", Gene Booth, Cumberland County's emergency management coordinator, said Friday.

Hubbard said so far this year, the Atlantic season has been fairly average, but it's been busier in the Pacific.

Swells generated by Florence are affecting Bermuda and are expected to reach portions of the U.S. East Coast.

A vigorous tropical wave located about 500 miles west of the Cabo Verde Islands is likely to become the Atlantic Basin's eighth named storm by Saturday.

The Emergency Measures Organisation, which is expected to meet on Monday, announced that public transport, schools and government offices would operate as normal that day.
