Hurricane Florence threatens Bermuda

Hurricane Florence threatens Bermuda

He said: "Florence has taken quite a hit overnight, It was a Category 4 storm Wednesday night and has dropped down to Category 2 this morning".

Though weakened to a tropical storm, Florence is expected to regain hurricane strength as it nears Bermuda. That marked a drop from one day earlier, when Florence suddenly strengthened and sustained winds hit 130 miles per hour - making it the first major hurricane of the 2018 Atlantic season.

Earlier today, Gov. Cooper said state emergency management officials are working with local and federal counterparts to prepare North Carolina for possible impacts from Florence.

It could become a major hurricane, which is Category 3 or higher, by Tuesday.

In keeping with Septembers status as the height of hurricane season, Florence was one of four systems dotted around the Atlantic — including a trough of showers and thunderstorms southwest of Bermuda, and two tropical depressions headed west from Africa.

"A west-northwestward motion with an increase in forward speed is expected by early next week and continue into middle part of next week". It is important to note that there is considerable uncertainty five days out, making it too soon to determine the magnitude and timing of potential major impacts to the East Coast. The storm's maximum sustained winds were 40 miles per hour and it was moving west at 12 miles per hour. Again, much can change, but with our main models having Florence lurking off of the mid-Atlantic we must bring our concern up a notch.

That would mean "severe consequences in terms of wind damage, coastal storm surge and inland flooding from torrential rainfall", it said.

The next name on the list for the Atlantic Hurricane Season is Isaac. Accurate keeping of storm track records is a relatively recent activity, especially when you factor in satellite records.

Weatherman Jason Caterina from Pinpoint weather warned that Hurricane Florence, now downgraded to a tropical storm, could make landfall as a hurricane over North Carolina next week.
