Hurricane Hunter Flight Says Isaac Has Weakened Further

Hurricane Hunter Flight Says Isaac Has Weakened Further

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

A weather warning for wind has been issued ahead of the arrival of Hurricane Helene in the United Kingdom next week, with injuries and danger to life a possibility.

As the East Coast prepares to take on Hurricane Florence, the massive storm appears to be flexing its muscles in the Atlantic.

Tropical Storm Isaac was edging towards the Leeward Islands Thursday morning on a path that could bring the storm into the Cayman Islands area. The duty forecaster pointed out that the showers and thunderstorms associated with the system are expected to dump 50-100 millimetres (two to four inches) of rainfall or as much as 150 millimetres (six inches), in some cases, on the island.

At 5 p.m. Tuesday, the center of the tropical storm was located approximately 916 miles east-southeast of St. Croix near 14.6 degrees North, 51.3 west. "Further strengthening is anticipated, and Florence is expected to be an extremely risky major hurricane through Thursday", the NHC warned.

Maximum sustained winds have decreased to near 40 miles per hour (65 km/h) with higher gusts.

The U.S. National Hurricane Center (NHC) provided the latest update on Hurricane Florence at 8 a.m. on September 12.

A turn toward the northeast with a rapid increase in forward motion is forecast to occur over the weekend.

The storm is moving at 17 miles per hour to the west and has 60 miles per hour winds. Although Olivia is expected to move over the islands as a tropical storm, it could still bring worse impacts than recent Hurricane Lane to some areas, the center said. If the rain bands persist, the National Weather Service may raise the flash flood watch to a flash flood warning triggering the emergency alert system. "Near the coast, the surge will be accompanied by large and destructive waves", the NHC added.

However, it is expected to generate accumulations of rain of between five and seven centimeters in isolated areas of the Lesser Antilles, with a danger of flooding.
