  • Joyce Moving West-Southwestward

In the Atlantic, while Joyce is far out to sea and poses no immediate threat to land, 70-mph Helene is forecast to roar near the Azores on Saturday and Sunday, the National Hurricane Center said.

National Hurricane Center Director Ken Graham says damaging winds and rain could begin hitting the coast late Thursday, pushing a storm surge that could reach 13 feet in places.

Over in the Pacific, this storm is still moving toward Hawaii, where tropical storm warnings and watches have been issued, the hurricane center said.

While Hurricane Florence pounds North Carolina, another tropical storm is on track to reach Britain early next week.

The storm is now around 530 miles southeast of Cape Fear, North Carolina, and is moving west-northwest at 17 mph.

The hurricane center said Isaac is expected to weaken in the coming few days.

Gradual weakening is forecast during the next 48 hours, but Olivia is expected to remain a tropical storm as it moves over the main Hawaiian Islands.

Hollywood actor Burt Reynolds dies aged 82
Celebrities reacted to news of the actor's death, sharing memories of Reynolds and appreciation for his body of work. Burton Leon Reynolds was born on February 11, 1936, in Lansing, Michigan, to parents Fern and Burton Milo Reynolds.

"Florence is forecast to be an extremely unsafe major hurricane as it approaches the US coast", the NHC said. Warmer ocean temperatures drive greater storm activity.

The storm would be expected to die out by Wednesday, Ms Smith said.

Maximum sustained winds remain near 60 miles per hour (95 km/h) with higher gusts. It is still a Category 4 storm with winds of 130 miles per hour. In coastal North Carolina, this could be 20 to 30 inches, isolated up to 40 inches in some areas, which could lead to catastrophic flooding.

Most of North Carolina is expected to receive 10 inches of rain, with two feet expected along the coast.

Tropical storm warnings were in effect for Martinique, Dominica and Guadeloupe, while watches were in effect for Montserrat, St. Kitts and Nevis, Antigua, and Saba and St. Eustatius. Coastal areas in both Carolinas have taken steps to evacuate residents and tourists, including a mandatory evacuation in SC.

According to NHC: "A Hurricane Watch means that hurricane conditions are possible within the watch area". A trough of low pressure over the western Gulf of Mexico is also producing disorganised showers and thunderstorms this morning, which the NHC had a 50% chance of becoming a storm.
