Hurricane Helene to affect all Azores islands - IPMA

Hurricane Helene is not expected to pose any danger as it turns northward in the Atlantic Ocean

Duke Energy North Carolina President David Fountain said Florence is so massive and its potential for damage so extensive that people could be without power for a very long time.

Joyce is centered about 870 miles (1,400 kilometers) southwest of the Azores and is moving southwest at 6 mph (9 kph).

The National Hurricane Center states that these storm surges are highly likely along portions of the coastlines of North Carolina and SC. Near the coast, the surge will be accompanied by large waves. "Surge-related flooding can vary greatly over short distances", the advisory said. The storm is expected to slow down and possibly stall near or over the coast on Friday.

The cloud system associated with Isaac remains poorly organized and Saint Lucia fell between the rain bands of Isaac, hence the island has thus far not received the expected rainfall.

Hurricane Florence has slowed as it approaches Wilmington, now marching at 5 miles per hour as it continues to aim its center at Wilmington, according to a 5 p.m. briefing by the National Hurricane Center.

A smaller hurricane dubbed Isaac is reportedly heading for the Caribbean, while Hurricane Helene - now also in the Atlantic - is forecast to track towards the UK. That was the nation's most expensive hurricane, although that record fell three years later when Hurricane Andrew struck South Florida. It was moving 10 miles per hour toward the Port City, the advisory said.

This general motion is expected to continue through the next few days.




Rain chances Friday and Saturday are only at 20 percent after the noon.

Still closer to Africa than North America, Hurricane Helene is predicted to head northeast in the Atlantic, then veer toward Europe, the center said.

All watches and warnings that had been issued on neighboring islands were canceled Thursday. "This rainfall may cause life-threatening flash floods".

It is presently located about 965 km east-southeast of Kingston, Jamaica.

The tail end of Hurricane Helene is expected to reach Ireland early next week, bringing wet and windy weather. "I love hurricanes. But this one has been an experience for me", she said.

Hurricane conditions are possible within the hurricane watch area - Guadeloupe, Martinique and Dominica - by Thursday morning, with tropical storm conditions possible early Thursday in both the tropical storm watch area - Antigua, St Kitts and Nevis, and Montserrat - and the hurricane watch areas, the NHC added.
