Hurricane Florence made landfall early Friday morning, prompting the National Hurricane Center to issue storm surge warnings for both Carolinas.

Behind Isaac to the east in the Atlantic was Hurricane Helene that had sustained wind speeds of 110 miles per hour as of Tuesday morning. Winds: Sustained or frequent winds gusts up to or in excess of 74 miles per hour are possible in the Hurricane Watch area Friday.

The update said up to four inches of rain could be expected in some areas of the Azores, while up to two inches could follow in Scotland and western Ireland.

The National Hurricane Center downgraded Isaac to a tropical storm overnight but said Tuesday that it could be "at or near hurricane levels" on Thursday, when it approaches the Lesser Antilles Islands.

In some areas of southeastern North Carolina officials had measured rainfall totals exceeding 16 inches (41 centimeters), warning that some areas could see totals up to 40 inches.

A Tropical Storm Watch is in effect for...

Isaac a little weaker and continues to lose organisation as it moves westward. The government of France has discontinued the Tropical Storm Watch for St. Martin, and the government of St. Maarten has discontinued the Tropical Storm Watch for St. Maarten. Rainfall of 0.5 to 1.5 inches with isolated amounts to 3 inches are forecast across Puerto Rico and the southern United States Virgin Islands, with up to an inch anticipated across the remaining Windward and Leeward Islands. "The threat of damaging winds, flooding rain, high surf, and storm surge still remains".
