Storms fester in the Atlantic - including remnants of Hurricane Florence

Maximum sustained winds are near 35 miles per hour with higher gusts

Proving that conditions in the tropics can change literally overnight, Tropical Storm Kirk, once a promising storm racing across the Atlantic, has dissipated as of Monday morning.

5 p.m. UPDATE: Tropical Storm Kirk continues on its rapid westward trek across the tropical Atlantic, speeding due west at 23 miles per hour, according to the latest National Hurricane Center advisory.

Meanwhile, way out in the Central Atlantic where it's no threat to land, Subtropical Storm Leslie is spinning south at 7 miles per hour and blowing winds of 40 miles per hour, according to the center's Monday afternoon update.

Tropical Atlantic is facing depressions across the ocean which is expected to approach coastal areas of America. Georgetown County is opening two shelters for those who evacuate.

"We may not be affected by this Tropical Storm, but we must do what we can to safeguard our loved ones and homes".

Local Red Cross volunteer gives update from North Carolina
Kroger is partnering with the American Red Cross to provide aid to those affected by Florence, starting Monday, September 17th. Save the Children helps families and children by providing child-focused supplies to affected families.

It'll continue to maintain its strength as it just wanders in the Atlantic over the course of the next several days. Florence is the obvious exception - the storm accounts for 45 percent of the season's hurricane activity so far.

After this, the disturbance's "upper-level winds are expected to increase, limiting the chances for additional development, while the system moves northward near the southeastern United States coast", NOAA said.

At present the named storm is churning through the sea at 5mph with maximum sustained winds of 40mph winds. Once it moves into the Caribbean, it will encounter even more shear, so it is expected to weaken further.

State Department of Transportation road maintenance supervisor Jeff Garrett posted photos Saturday of the rotting fish scattered along a stretch of Interstate 40. In a statement posted online, they quipped: "We can add "washing fish off of the interstate" to the long list of interesting things firefighters get to experience". A stretch of I-95 closed in the southeastern part of the state around Lumberton after Florence made landfall on September 14.

Meanwhile, another system of disorganized showers, located Monday about 450 miles south-southeast of Cape Hatteras, North Carolina, neared the already hurricane-battered U.S. East Coast.
