Florence isn't the only one. There are more hurricanes brewing

An increase in forward speed is expected during the next couple of days.

By 11 p.m. Sunday, Florence was moving across the Atlantic Ocean at about 7 miles per hour, and it was almost a Category 2 hurricane, with peak winds of 90 miles per hour.

"Everyone in North Carolina needs to keep a close eye on Florence and take steps now to get ready for impacts later this week", Cooper said.

The storm is now around 400 miles south of Bermuda and is moving at 16 mph (26 kph).

"Florence is expected to be an extremely unsafe major hurricane through Thursday", the NHC said.

Virginia Governor Ralph Northam's office described Florence as possibly the state's "most significant hurricane event in decades", warning of "catastrophic inland flooding, high winds and possible widespread power outages". Its center will move between Bermuda and the Bahamas Tuesday and Wednesday, and approach the coast of SC or North Carolina on Thursday, the National Hurricane Center said.

The devastation from 17 named storms, 10 hurricanes and 6 six major hurricanes reached near apocalyptic proportions in some regions, causing an estimated $282billion worth of damage.

"Storm Surge and Hurricane watches could be issued for portions of these areas by Tuesday (Sept. 11) morning", said the NHC in the update.

This storm is lined up behind Florence in the Atlantic.

"Additional strengthening was expected over the next day or two".

Helene stays in Atlantic and turns to the north where it will weaken over colder waters.

Hurricane Florence will make its way westward, likely toward the Carolinas later this week while Hurricane Isaac moves westward toward the Caribbean.

The storm is forecast to continue towards the United States, and approach the southeastern coast by Thursday.

Governor Greg Abbott says Texas is preparing for a possible tropical storm system headed toward the Gulf of Mexico. "We just happen to be right in the middle". "Whether it is a tropical storm, a tropical storm watch, or a hurricane watch or a hurricane warning, we must treat all of them the same way".

Issac became the fifth hurricane of this season on Sunday night when it was around 1,300 miles east of the Windward Islands. It was a potentially catastrophic Category 4 storm but was expected to keep drawing energy from the warm water and intensify to near Category 5, which means winds of 157 miles per hour (253 kph) or higher.

Mandatory coastal evacuations were in effect for civilians in South Carolina, North Carolina and Virginia, but the military base posted on Facebook that different chains-of-command would decide whether to release non-essential personnel, and some relatives vented fears that they wouldn't be able to evacuate in time.
