Sep. 11, 2018 - Florence, Helene, Isaac and two areas of interest

The Atlantic Basin is ACTIVE. This morning, we are taking a peek at a number of storms including Florence which is an imminent threat to the Eastern US Seaboard.

As you can see in the overview of the Atlantic, we have multiple issues, including a new threat to the Gulf Coast of Texas.

Historically, storms forming off the coast of the Yucatan Peninsula are difficult to forecast due to their rapid development and short creation-to-landfall timeline.

Currently forecast to make landfall as a category 4 storm, Florence has the potential to be a killer and a considerable destructive force to the Eastern Seaboard.

Isaac will be a threat to the Gulf of Mexico late next week if it can hold itself together.  Only time will tell.  Watching Isaac traverse the Caribbean Sea is a must.

Helene will be a fish storm, that is, the only threat it will pose are to objects at sea.
