  • Met Eireann update on tropical Storm Helene heading towards Ireland

Winds of up to 80mph could hit the county on Monday night, forecasters warned.

Sen. Jeff Merkley of OR said the administration was taking money from FEMA's "response and recovery" to the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency at a time when Hurricane Florence is bearing down on the Southeast U.S. coast.

"Rainfall: "2-4" in the CSRA, 3-7" in the central Midlands, 6-10" in northern forecast area. Although the storm is expected to weaken, it has followed a wavering path and could still pose a threat to Cayman early next week.

The Miami-based National Hurricane Centre (NHC) in its latest bulletin said that hurricane watches had gone into effect for Dominica, Martinique, and Guadeloupe, while a tropical storm watch is in effect for Antigua and Barbuda and Montserrat. Aircraft data indicated maximum sustained winds near 60 miles per hour with higher gusts, according to the National Hurricane Center.

"Current indications are that (ex-) tropical storm Helene will approach Ireland's south coast during Tuesday". Florence is expected to slow down as it approaches the Carolina coast over the next several days.


Isaac, a weakening Category 1 hurricane, is much farther south, and is facing the same winds that threatened to rip Hurricane Florence apart.

He said as a result of the damage caused by Maria previous year, the island does not have its full complement of shelters but emergency shelters across the island would be opened by Wednesday.

Meanwhile, the projections for rain are growing, adding to growing concerns about flooding across the two states: Coastal North Carolina now expects 20-30 inches, with isolated areas of 40 inches projected in SC.

The U.S. National Hurricane Center (NHC) provided the latest update on Hurricane Florence at 8 a.m. on September 12.

As indicated by the National Hurricane Center (NHC), tropical Hurricane Florence, a Category 4 storm with 140 miles per hour winds, is required to make landfall somewhere close to North Carolina, South Carolina, and the Mid-Atlantic states on Thursday night or Friday morning.
