Florence strengthens; Helene becomes a hurricane 

Florence strengthens; Helene becomes a hurricane

Hurricane Florence is  aiming for the Carolinas. Tropical storm Helene became a hurricane just off of Africa’s coast. According to the National Weather Service a third storm, Isaac, could also turn into a hurricane by Sunday night.

Florence’s strongest winds were measuring 85 mph, with a possible landfall as a major hurricane happening Thursday.

The hurricane center’s forecast track had Isaac, currently a tropical storm, plunging westward into the Caribbean by Wednesday night or Thursday. It’s maximum sustained winds were measured at 70 mph, 4 mph slower than the Category 1 hurricane.

Hurricane Helene continued to strengthen Sunday, with winds clocked at 75 mph, just above the 74 mph threshold for a Category 1 hurricane. The weather service estimates that the storm will take a sharp north turn into the middle of the Atlantic later in the week.
