Three Hurricanes Currently In Atlantic Ocean

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's Goes-East weather-monitoring satellite used its lightning mapping technology for a video showing Florence, Tropical Storm Isaac and Hurricane Helene as they traveled across the Atlantic on Tuesday.

"Life-threatening freshwater flooding is likely from a prolonged and exceptionally heavy rainfall event, which may extend inland over the Carolinas and Mid Atlantic for hundreds of miles as Florence is expected to slow down as it approaches the coast and moves inland".

The governor of Maryland has declared a state of emergency in preparation for significant flooding from Hurricane Florence.

The US-based National Hurricane Centre said: “Florence is forecast to rapidly strengthen to a major hurricane by Monday, and is expected to remain an extremely risky major hurricane through Thursday.

Florence is one of three hurricanes in the Atlantic Ocean, along with Helene and Isaac.

Its impacts may be felt much deeper in the USA, including in most of Virginia.

The implications of a major landfalling hurricane are devastating. "Normally, a landfalling tropical cyclone just keeps on going inland, gradually dissipating and raining itself out".

"Further strengthening is anticipated, and Florence is expected to be an extremely risky major hurricane through Thursday", the National Hurricane Center said.

Back in late August, the Atlantic tropics looked like they were going to stay boarded up for the season.

Hurricane Helene is moving toward the west-northwest near 16 miles per hour.

But its projected path is uncertain, with a BBC map indicating that the hurricane could make landfall within a huge range of coastline.

Hurricane troubles may not end with Florence.

The storm is now between 500-600 miles wide and gaining strength.

In addition to Arnold's photos, a camera outside the space station recorded video footage of Hurricane Florence while flying overhead.

- Motorists streamed inland on highways converted to one-way evacuation routes Tuesday as about 1.7 million people in three states were warned to get out of the way of Hurricane Florence, a hair-raising storm taking dead aim at the Carolinas with 140 miles per hour (225 kph) winds and potentially ruinous rains. The storm is targeting the southern Caribbean region and may bring a storm surge of up to 5 feet.

The video tracks across the swirling clouds at the outer edges of the hurricane before passing over the eye.

Over the next 36 hours, Florence's winds could reach 150 mph, the hurricane center says. As of right now, Helen is expected to take a hard northward turn in the coming days and then sputter in the open Atlantic.

On top of Irma and Maria, powerful category 4 hurricane Harvey inflicted $125billion worth of damage, mostly from catastrophic flooding in Houston, Texas, between August and September previous year.
