A number of hurricane and tropical storm watches have been issued for Tropical Storm Isaac

A number of hurricane and tropical storm watches have been issued for Tropical Storm Isaac

That's as high as an eight-story building.

Hurricane Florence is now generating waves up to 83 feet, almost double the height measured on Tuesday.

The storm is moving at 17 miles per hour to the west and has 60 miles per hour winds. Wind shear, which refers to fluctuations in wind strength in the atmosphere, something that tears storms apart, is present in Isaac's path.

Meanwhile, Hurricane Helene will move away from Cabo Verde Islands into the open waters of the central Atlantic through the week, posing no direct threat to land.

Joyce could become a tropical storm within the next day or so. Although Olivia is expected to move over the islands as a tropical storm, it could still bring worse impacts than recent Hurricane Lane to some areas, the center said.

Isaac is a weakening tropical storm and is expected to be shredded in the coming days and possibly be downgraded to a subtropical system as it meanders through the Caribbean in the next five days.

We also know that, on Saturday against Spain , we could have feasibly ended with a draw which would have looked different as well. They recognise when they want to be better.

According to the National Hurricane Center's 11 p.m. Tuesday update, Isaac has weakened somewhat in the previous 24 hours and is now expected to enter the Caribbean Thursday evening as a tropical storm, rather than a hurricane.

Sen. Jeff Merkley of OR said the administration was taking money from FEMA's "response and recovery" to the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency at a time when Hurricane Florence is bearing down on the Southeast U.S. coast.

Although Florence was downgraded from Category 4 status, it is still considered an extremely risky storm with maximum sustained winds near 125 miles per hour.

Britain is bracing itself for strong winds and heavy rain as Hurricane Helene makes its way across the Atlantic.

The Met Office has claimed Helene, which is now making its way through the Atlantic, could bring temperatures as high as 26C in the London area, while reaching only 6C in Scotland. Earlier forecasts showed that the storm was slated to directly hit around North and SC.

The public is also advised to take care near to the coastline, with injuries from large waves and beach material being thrown onto the seafront.
