Powerful hurricane could be headed to southeast US

Tropical Storm Florence is forecasted to hit the U.S. east coast late next week

The storm could intensify rapidly by Sunday, becoming a "major hurricane" by Monday.

The current forecast track brings Florence on approach to the southeast USA coast on Thursday as a major and powerful hurricane.

And according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, it's still too early to tell what the impact to the Carolinas might be.

Florence's effects were already being felt along the coast, with unsafe swells and rip currents in some spots.

According to updates at 5am from the NHC, the center of Tropical Storm Florence was located near latitude 24.5 North, longitude 55.8 West.

Florence regained Hurricane strength this morning, and is considered a potential threat as it is expected to pass within 460 miles of the island in the next 72 hours.
