"This will likely be the storm of a lifetime for portions of the Carolina coast", the National Weather Service spokesperson in Wilmington, North Carolina said Tuesday night, according to ABC News.

The storm would be expected to die out by Wednesday, Ms Smith said.

Hurricane Katrina, which killed over 1,800 people across the US Gulf Coast in 2005, was also a Category 5.

Hurricane Florence, now a Category 2 storm, is slowly approaching the USA coast, and the storm's massive fury is on full display in video footage taken from the International Space Station.

Evacuation orders have been lifted in several coastal SC counties as Florence continues to dump rain on the state.

Former Tropical Storm Isaac dissipated overnight Saturday, the National Hurricane Center said.

At 5 a.m. EDT (0900 UTC), the center of Hurricane Helene was located near latitude 23.5 degrees north and longitude 37.3 degrees west. Helene is now about 1,170 miles (1,885 km) miles southwest of the Azores.

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

More than 2 feet of rain already had fallen in places, and the drenching went on and on as Florence, a hurricane-turned-tropical storm, practically parked itself over the two states.

The Portuguese weather service said that wind gusts of up to 74 mph are possible by the weekend in the Azores, an island chain about 850 miles west of Portugal.

Meteorologist Ryan Maue of weathermodels.com said Florence could dump a staggering 18 trillion gallons (68 trillion liters) of rain over a week on North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, Georgia, Tennessee, Kentucky, and Maryland.

For Coweta County, this could mean heavy downpours, flooding, gusty winds and isolated tornadoes.

Less rain is predicted for St. Thomas, St. John and Water Island.

"Winds are likely to gust to 55-65 miles per hour quite widely in the warning area, with possible gusts of 70-80 miles per hour in exposure". "I love hurricanes. But this one has been an experience for me", she said. The bottom line is everything we're tracking points towards a catastrophic event.
