Sustained winds remained at 90 miles per hour, but the storm - which was never expected to threaten the USA coast - should begin to weaken over the next day and become a tropical storm on Thursday, forecasters said in an 11 a.m. advisory.

NOAA's National Hurricane Center issued a Public Advisory at 5 a.m.

She is now one of a glut of tropical storms in the Atlantic, with Florence sparking mass evacuations as she heads towards landfall in the U.S. states of North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia. The biggest threats from Hurricane Florence are life-threatening storm surge, devastating flash-flooding, and hurricane-force winds.

The hurricane center said Isaac is expected to weaken in the coming few days. "A watch is typically issued 48 hours before the anticipated first occurrence of tropical-storm-force winds, conditions that make outside preparations hard or unsafe". But by Monday Helene is expected to be downgraded to a storm.

Florence is unlike Hurricane Hugo, a category 4 storm that struck Charleston in 1989. We're talking about hurricanes and storms, obviously.

Forecasters have warned of life-threatening storm surges, catastrophic flooding, damaging winds, and risky rip currents along the coastlines of North Carolina, South Carolina, and Virginia.

Well, mostly those living in the south coast of the country. Coastal areas in both Carolinas have taken steps to evacuate residents and tourists, including a mandatory evacuation in SC. "However, upper-level winds are forecast to become a little more conducive for development, and a tropical depression could still form Thursday or Friday before the system reaches the western Gulf Coast".
