The storm was moving west at 14 miles per hour.
A North Carolina town inundated by river water after a levee breached is among the latest towns to feel the life-threatening punch of Hurricane Florence. "Some strengthening is forecast through Sunday, with little change in intensity forecast on Monday and Tuesday".
"The forecast track just barely clips Raleigh, so we'll have to keep a closer eye on this forecast track, but the storm overall is moving very slowly", Campbell said.
"At 5:00 a.m the center of Tropical Depression #11 was located near 14.5N 55.0W... about 320 miles.512 km east of Barbados". There is a 70% chance of formation in the next five days.
Florence, which made landfall as a Category 1 hurricane on September 14 in Wrightsville Beach, N.C., brought heavy winds and rain to North Carolina and SC before making its way up the East Coast, spawning deadly tornadoes and flooding in Virginia and rain up the coast before it, as Brennan says, "became elongated and lost definition". No impacts will be felt in eastern Carolina. "Due to this, travel isn't recommended south of US 64", it added. Damaging winds and large hail are the main threats. "It is still too early to say what effects it will have on the BVI", the DDM said. "Action today can avoid losses due to Florence".
The low pressure formed into a depression late Friday night, according to the National Hurricane Center. "Due to these conditions, Superintendent David Hallac is strongly urging all beach visitors to stay out of the Atlantic Ocean until unsafe conditions subside".
Kirk is expected to strengthen but remain a Tropical Storm through midweek, when it's likely to run into strong wind shear, causing storm to weaken as it approaches the Lesser Antilles, the Hurricane Center said.
Tropical Storm Kirk and sub-Tropical Storm Leslie formed in the Atlantic Ocean.
Forecasters say Tropical Storm Kirk is continuing to move west across the eastern Atlantic but does not now pose any threat to land.
A system in the open waters of the Atlantic continues to organize and has a medium chance of development. However, they add it may begin weakening in the middle of the week. But it was expected to move on a mostly westward course during the next 24 hours.
