Tropical Storm Isaac moves into Caribbean with 45-mph winds

A "yellow" danger to life weather warning has been issued with Storm Helene set to hit the United Kingdom and Ireland next week.

Subtropical Storm Joyce has maximum sustained winds of near 45 miles per hour (75 km/h) with higher gusts.

Met Éireann said: "Current indications are that (ex-) tropical storm Helene will approach Ireland's south coast during Tuesday".

Meteorologists expect Isaac to travel through the eastern and central Caribbean in the coming days and experience a gradual weakening until it degrades to a tropical wave at any time.

A Tropical Storm Watch has been issued for all of the Azores Islands. Although this tropical storm will not be near Arkansas and Oklahoma, you may have family or friends that are in the unsafe path.

The storm is tracking to the west at 16 miles per hour.

A tropical storm warning means that tropical storm conditions are expected somewhere in the warning area within 36 hours, and a watch within 48 hours.

Winds of tropical storm strength could reach Puerto Rico on Friday morning. The winds of Isaac are not expected to affect the Virgin Islands. Although the storm is expected to weaken, it has followed a wavering path and could still pose a threat to Cayman early next week.

Florence is now 485 miles from Wilmington, North Carolina.

Next advisory: 2 p.m. In South Carolina, local officials reported 300,000 had already evacuated the coast as of Wednesday. This rainfall may cause unsafe flash flooding, N.H.C. said.

Helene is among a string of tropical storms brewing in the Atlantic, with mass evacuations under way in southern U.S. states as Hurricane Florence barrels across Virginia and the Carolinas. Many areas in the low-lying city flood with routine rain storms, causing street closures and detours.

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

Ahead of Helene is Hurricane Florence, a Category 4 storm that is projected to make landfall near the Carolinas later Thursday. This general motion is forecast to continue today with a decrease in forward speed as it gets over the Caribbean Sea.
