Forecasters say Tropical Storm Florence has turned into a hurricane again and is swirling toward the U.S. East Coast for what could be a direct hit toward the end of the week.

Its center will move between Bermuda and the Bahamas on Tuesday and Wednesday and approach the coast of SC or North Carolina on Thursday, the National Hurricane Center said.

North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia have declared states of emergency in preparation for the potential impact of Florence. The Center reports that Florence will be a unsafe hurricane near the United States' southeastern coast by late next week as the risk of "direct impacts continues to increase".

The storm is expected to take a track that will move west-southwest and eventually curve toward a possible landfall in North or SC.

As of 11 a.m. Sunday, the storm was moving westward at 6 miles per hour.

Delaware Gov. John Carney says state officials are closely monitoring the approach of Hurricane Florence, which is heading toward the US for what forecasters said could be a direct hit on the Southeast toward the end of the week. They were likely to cause life-threatening surf and rip current conditions, according to the NHC.

The latest update shows Florence as a Category 1 storm with maximum sustained winds of 75 miles per hour.

In 1989, Hurricane Hugo grew to a Category 4 storm before coming ashore near Charleston, South Carolina, where it caused about $14.1 billion in damage when adjusted for inflation, making it the 13th costliest USA storm, according to Hurricane Center records.

Heavy rain expected for Toronto starting Sunday night
Some stronger, even severe storms are possible through Saturday evening as high winds and heavy rains would be the main threats. That storm, Tropical Storm Ike, produced four to six inches of rain over two-thirds of IL , which led to flash flooding.

"I'm telling them to go inland, but I'm anxious about the rain and tornadoes too", Roberts said. Myrtle Beach Mayor Brenda Bethune urged people to secure their homes but said it's too early to know if evacuations will be ordered.

Computer models agree Florence is on track to hit the Carolinas. "If you see a business taking advantage of this storm, please let my office know so we can hold them accountable", Stein said. Strengthening into a tropical storm is forecast this weekend and possibly a hurricane early next week as it approaches the Lesser Antilles. The island state is still recovering from Hurricane Lane, which brought flooding rains to many areas last month. There is at least a five percent chance of tropical storm-force winds in Northeast Florida, though the storm is predicted to track farther north.

Hours before Isaac became a hurricane, Helene strengthened into one. As of Saturday evening, the hurricane was 1,190 miles east of Honolulu.

Tropical Depression 9 is located in the Atlantic Ocean and is moving westward.
