  • Joyce Drifting Southwestward With No Change in Strength

Hurricane Florence isn't the only storm packing powerful winds and torrential rain over the world's oceans. It will continue to move to the west and away from the V.I. during the overnight hours.

Coral spokesman John Hill said: "With the threat of Hurricane Helene reaching the United Kingdom and following a flood of bets over the past couple of days, the odds have been cut on this month ending as the wettest September on record". "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".

Although Helene is now a hurricane, it will weaken and be downgraded to a tropical storm by the time it reaches the Azores.

Gradual weakening is forecast during the next 48 hours, but Olivia is expected to remain a tropical storm as it moves over the main Hawaiian Islands.

"The storm is expected to produce total rainfall accumulations of 2 to 4 inches with isolated amounts up [to] 8 inches across Martinique, Dominica and Guadeloupe", the U.S. National Hurricane Center advised Wednesday.

Climate change is also having an effect on Atlantic hurricanes, causing storms that are bigger, longer-lasting, and more intense.

National Hurricane Center Director Ken Graham warns that a slight shift in Florence's forecast track does not mean that some communities north of the storm are now in the clear. The storm is expected to slow down and possibly stall near or over the coast on Friday. Isaac has maximum sustained winds of 45mph with higher gusts, and officials at Hazard Management Cayman Islands are urging people to keep an eye on the storm's path because it could be heading our way.

At 5 a.m., the storm was centered 575 miles (925 km) southeast of Cape Fear, North Carolina, moving at 17 mph (28 kph). Earlier forecasts showed that the storm was slated to directly hit around North and SC.

Marco Asensio was on a mad one last night versus Croatia . "After the second goal, the match was over for us". Sergi Roberto didn't play, so both players should be in good shape for the Real Sociedad match.

Meanwhile, tropical storm Joyce continues its advance through the southwest Atlantic with maximum sustained winds of 65 kilometers per hour, although it does not represent a threat to populated areas.

Well, mostly those living in the south coast of the country. Another system began forming near Hurricane Florence and was forecast at a 20 percent chance of formation over five days.

"Regardless of development, heavy rainfall and gusty winds are expected across portions of northeastern Mexico, Texas, and Louisiana late this week, and interests there should monitor the progress of this system", it added.
