Tropical storm Florence could cause dangerous rip currents and rips in parts of the east coast of the USA. UU This weekend while moving over the Atlantic, according to forecasters from the National Hurricane Center.
Although weakened by a tropical storm, Florence is expected to regain the strength of the hurricanes as it approaches Bermuda. Great surges will probably begin to hit the territory of the British island in the North Atlantic Ocean on Friday.
Meteorologists say it's too early to tell where the storm will go. Some forecast models show that Florence will land at the end of next week, while others indicate that the storm would move away from the coast.
The South Carolina Division of Emergency Management said that although it was too early to know if the storm would have any impact on the state, it was advising coastal residents to start making contingency plans.
"The risk of other direct impacts associated with Florence along the east coast of next week has increased, however, there is still great uncertainty in the forecast of the Florence runway model beyond the day (five), which makes it too early to determine the exact location, magnitude and timing of these impacts, "hurricane specialist Robbie Berg wrote in a forecast.
It was expected that the improvement of atmospheric conditions would allow Florence to recover its previous strength. The storm reached the state of major hurricane on Wednesday, reaching its peak with sustained winds of 210 km / h.
Meanwhile, two low-pressure systems off the coast of Africa, behind Florence, also had great potential to become tropical storms, meteorologists said.
"Given that we are close to the peak of the hurricane season, this is a good time for everyone living in a hurricane-prone area to ensure they have their hurricane plan," wrote hurricane expert David Zelinsky in a notice forecast.
The National Hurricane Center said the maximum sustained winds from Florence on Friday afternoon were estimated at 105 km / h. The storm was concentrated about 1,457 km east-southeast of Bermuda and moved west at 13 km / h.
