Hurricane Helene: All you need to know about storm

Hurricane Florence Won’t Be The Last To Hit The US This Season As More Form In Its Wake

As Isaac approaches the islands those watches may progress to become warnings, which are issued when a threat is more imminent and there are conditions actually happening in the immediate area related to a hurricane or tropical storm.

Far from this hurricane parade on the other side of the globe, Tropical Storm Olivia is flying solo east of Hawaii.

Computer models are in general agreement that Subtropical Storm Joyce will move northeasterly across the Atlantic towards Europe.

Meanwhile, what could be the world's most unsafe storm at the moment is Super Typhoon Mangkhut, which now has winds of 165 miles per hour (with 200 miles per hour gusts) and is taking aim on the Philippines, according to the Joint Typhoon Warning Center.

This weekend Isaac is forecast to move toward the central and western Caribbean as a tropical storm.

Olivia's maximum sustained winds are about 65 miles per hour, after the storm weakened from Category 1 strength, forecasters said. This means that tropical storm conditions are expected to make landfall between 36- and 48-hours.


Mapp, who spoke with the National Weather Service and Virgin Islands Emergency Management Agency officials again this morning, said two to four inches of rain are expected on St. Croix beginning Thursday evening.

However, it is expected to generate accumulations of rain of between five and seven centimeters in isolated areas of the Lesser Antilles, with a danger of flooding.

Tropical Storm Isaac made its closest approach to St. Croix Thursday night, passing nearly 200 miles to the south and having no apparent impact on the territory as it made its leisurely way across the Caribbean.

Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 105 miles (165 km) from the center. Damaging winds, floods, high surf and storm surge are still possible.

NASA-NOAA's Suomi NPP satellite passed over tropical cyclone Isaac in the eastern Caribbean Sea and it has weakened to a depression as a result of being hammered by vertical wind shear.
