Storm Helene to bring wet and windy weather to Ireland

Storm Helene to bring wet and windy weather to Ireland

The NHC posted on Twitter Wednesday and said the massive waves were measured by satellite.

It's a detail that almost got lost among all the wind, rain and storm surge data sent out by the National Hurricane Center on Wednesday.

All eyes are on Hurricane Florence and its path toward the Carolinas, but other hurricanes and tropical storms are brewing as well.

Winds: 40% - 60% chance of tropical storm force winds (greater than 39 mph), especially Saturday & Sunday. 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.

Isaac, with winds of 50 miles per hour, had weakened as it tracked westward toward the Caribbean, according to the National Hurricane Center, and may not survive beyond the next few days.

There is the potential for damaging winds with gusts up to 70mph possible, with sustained winds of 30 to 40mph.

The latest guidance suggests that the strongest winds will occur along the south and west coasts, where gusts could exceed 130-140 kph.

Colin Kaepernick Nike Advert 'Fixed' By Donald Trump Jr
Nike has not commented on the news, but WWD spoke with a branding expert who believes that the campaign gives the company an edge. President Trump predicted Wednesday that Nike would suffer losses due to its decision to feature an NFL-kneeler.

NOAA's National Hurricane Center issued a Public Advisory at 5 a.m.

The Homeland Security Department is pushing back against a Democratic U.S. senator's claim that the Trump administration transferred almost $10 million from the government's disaster relief agency to immigration enforcement. They are also watching Tropical Storm Isaac, which is heading due west and expected to enter the Caribbean Sea on Thursday.

Still closer to Africa than North America, Helen is predicted to head north in the Atlantic and not make landfall, the center says.

He said the agency will be monitoring Florence and holding meetings with the state Division of Emergency Management.

With the storm churning across the Atlantic with 140 miles per hour winds, hurricane watches and warnings include the homes of more than 5.4 million people on the East Coast. Earlier forecasts showed that the storm was slated to directly hit around North and SC. Florence, the most ominous for USA residents, is expected to make landfall today.

"Heavy and long-lasting rainfall could lead to catastrophic flooding in inland parts of North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia".
