Isaac continues to advance, some watches and warnings issued

Virginia governor orders mandatory evacuation for part of state ahead of Hurricane Florence emergency management website crashes

Isaac became a tropical storm again approaching the Caribbean, while Hurricane Helene was veering northward, no threat to land.

North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper declared a state of emergency as well as mandatory evacuation orders along the eastern coastline.

The National Hurricane Center's projected track for Hurricane Florence, as of 11 a.m. on September 11, 2018.

"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.

Meanwhile, Pentagon spokesman, Col. Robert Manning said, "Northern Command is spending an advanced team to the emergency operations center in Raleigh, North Carolina Monday to conduct an assessment and coordinate with federal and state partners".

Emiratis in Virginia, North and SC areas have been warned that Hurricane Florence may become a category 4 storm. That Category 4 storm destroyed 15,000 buildings and killed 19 people in North Carolina.

Trump said the hurricane was "one of the worst storms to hit the East Coast in many years".

At 11 p.m. EDT, the storm's center was located about 465 miles (750 kilometers) south-southeast of Bermuda and about 1,085 miles (1745 kilometers) east-southeast of Cape Fear, North Carolina.

The National Hurricane Centre has warned of "life-threatening" storm surges along the south-eastern seaboard and freshwater flooding due to a "prolonged and exceptionally heavy rainfall event".

The National Hurricane Center said Monday that Hurricane Florence is now a Category 4 storm and continuing to intensify.

SOUTHEASTERN N.C. - The National Weather Service has placed parts of New Hanover County under a coastal flood advisory through midnight.

NASA astronaut and current International Space Station resident Ricky Arnold was able to capture the sheer breadth of Hurricane Florence, while showcasing Isaac and an outer band of Helene in new photos posted on Twitter Monday.

Isaac is a Category 1 hurricane that's blowing winds between 74-95 miles per hour. "We know we can't play around with this", said Jennifer Oosterwyk, who owns the Sugar Britches boutique on Holden Beach and lives in nearby Wilmington. Hurricane-to-tropical-storm-force winds could extend inland, depending on the storm's track. "With time, the wind pushes the water into every nook and cranny you can think of", Graham said.

Florence has been classified as Category 4 storm with sustained winds of around 140mph (220km/h).

For many people, the challenge could be finding a safe refuge: If Florence slows to a crawl just off the coast, it could bring torrential rains to the Appalachian mountains and as far away as West Virginia, causing flash floods, mudslides and other unsafe conditions. Isaac's forward movement was accelerating on a path to cross into the lower Caribbean on Thursday.

Isaac was expected to strengthen to a hurricane by Wednesday morning, but will then likely weaken back to a tropical storm by Wednesday night.
