Eventually, Florence will veer north into the Appalachian Mountains, bringing soaking rains to Virginia and western North Carolina, before sputtering out late next week near DE and Maryland, the FWS reported.

This hurricane, though, is far from weak.

More than 1 million people have been ordered to evacuate the coastlines of the Carolinas and Virginia.

The storm is likely to die out by Wednesday, the forecaster said.

NHC warned that the combination of a risky storm surge and the tide will cause normally dry areas near the coast to be flooded by rising waters moving inland from the shoreline.

Overall, risky storm surge is possible all the way from Edisto Beach, South Carolina, to the North Carolina/Virginia border.

The storm will slow down because of pushback from a trough - an extended area of low atmospheric pressure - now over Texas, Stacy Stewart, an NHC senior hurricane specialist, said in the update.

The National Hurricane Center warned the threat of tornadoes was increasing as Florence neared shore and South Carolina Governor Henry McMaster said the heavy rains could trigger landslides in the western part of his state.

Areas along the coast from Cape Fear to Cape Lookout, NC, including the Neuse, Pamlico, Pungo and Bay rivers may experience storm surges from 9 to 13 feet. Favorable wind patterns. Higher sea levels that exacerbate storm surge.

"The deepest water will occur along the immediate coast in areas of onshore winds, where the surge will be accompanied by large and destructive waves", the NWS report said.

Tropical Storm Isaac appeared "poorly organized" and was weaker on the early morning hours of Wednesday Sep.

It explained that the shift in the forecast guidance was the anticipated result of a reduction in Florence's steering flow due to two competing areas of high pressure.

On the forecast track, Typhoon Manghut will may hit the northernmost islands of the Philippines on in the night between Friday 14 and Saturday 15 ( local time) as a low CAT5 equivalent hurricane, with winds of 210 km/h, gusting to 305 km/h.

Hurricane Isaac is small in size as it heads toward the Lesser Antilles. Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands face possible isolated amounts of 3 inches.

As of 10 a.m. CDT Tropical Storm Isaac was located about 420 miles east of Martinique and was moving west at 17 mph, according to the National Hurricane Center.

Subtropical Storm Joyce, which formed in the North Atlantic Tuesday, is also not expected to hit the U.S. It is forecast to become a tropical storm in the next day or so while drifting to the southwest. That system could develop into a tropical depression by Friday.

"Interests in the southeastern and mid-Atlantic states should monitor the progress of Florence".
