TROPICS: Florence to become a hurricane today; TD 9 strengthening

Two Weather Systems Are Developing In Atlantic; Advisories Could Be Issued Today -

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.

The storm's center was 750 miles (1,200 km) southeast of Bermuda at 11 a.m. EDT on Sunday.

The governors of Virginia, North Carolina and SC have declared states of emergency.

North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper said in a statement on Sunday: "Review your emergency plans and gather your supplies now".

The Trinidad and Tobago Meteorological Service said it is monitoring the progress of Tropical Storms Helene and Isaac in the Eastern Atlantic.

More and more, Florence is looking like a storm that may give the US East Coast problems as a potentially major hurricane next week.

Aircraft data indicate that maximum sustained winds have increased to near 75 miles per hour with higher gusts.

News 1 reported Thursday the biggest US warship based in Asia could arrive in South Korea for joint exercises. Mr Kim was also pleased to receive a personal letter from Mr Moon, delivered by Mr Chung, KCNA added.

South Carolina's Emergency Management Division said residents should begin preparing their homes and property for the storm.

On its current path, winds from the hurricane, which are travelling at 15mph from the centre, will move over the southwestern Atlantic Ocean between Bermuda and the Bahamas on Tuesday and Wednesday.

The Miami-based center said that it was still too early to predict the hurricane's exact path but that a huge coastal area from SC to the mid-Atlantic region should prepare for a major strike late in the week.

Another tropical storm has now developed in the Atlantic and could possibly hit the British Virgin Islands as a hurricane in the next few days.

Isaac will be near the Lesser Antilles later this week and could bring impacts to parts of the Caribbean Islands during this time frame.
