Hurricane Helene: All you need to know about storm

The enormous waves were recorded in the northeast quadrant of the hurricane, which is the strongest area of the storm. Rain chances also increase Saturday afternoon into Saturday night.

Maximum sustained winds remain near 60 miles per hour (95 km/h) with higher gusts.

Storm surge occurs when the hurricane-force winds blow over the ocean water.

It's not clear if the storm is expected to strengthen back into a hurricane after it hits the eastern Caribbean.

"Mild, very humid conditions are expected to develop during Monday, with rain moving up from the south in freshening southerly winds".

When the National Hurricane Updates shared a map of the category four hurricane, dubbed "the storm of a lifetime", on Facebook, people were quick to compare the pink round-headed shape displaying the devastation to something a lot less serious.

STORM SURGE: Some coastal flooding is possible in areas of onshore winds. Conversely, the southern/western areas of the CSRA will see the least rain/wind.

Meanwhile, Isaac is a tropical storm that will eventually die out as it moves closer to the Yucatán Peninsula, according to Bridges.

Georgia, Virginia and North and SC have declared states of emergency.

"By the time it reaches the United Kingdom we're looking at potential for 55 to 65mph gusts, with isolated chances of 70 to 80 miles per hour gusts on exposed high ground or coastal areas", Met Office spokesperson Nicola Maxy told i. The storm is expected to slow down and possibly stall near or over the coast on Friday.

"There remains large uncertainty in Helene's exact track, however a spell of very strong winds is expected, initially for parts of south-west England and west Wales".

Florence, which was downgraded to a Category 1 hurricane overnight, officially made landfall near Wrightsville Beach shortly before 7:45 a.m.

Forecasters say the eye of Hurricane Florence is wobbling slowly southwestward just off the coast of southeastern North Carolina, near the border with SC.

North Carolina alone is forecast to get 9.6 trillion gallons (36 trillion liters), enough to cover the Tar Heel state to a depth of about 10 inches (25 centimeters).

A remarkable satellite image shows Hurricane Florence in the Atlantic is one of just nine potentially unsafe storms now circling around the world.
