Subtropical Storm Joyce forms in north Atlantic

The Met Office warned yesterday Helene is expected to track towards the United Kingdom over the weekend.

A tree fell on the house, killing the baby and mom, the New York Times reported.

It said that maximum sustained winds are near 75 miles per hour with higher gusts and that additional strengthening is expected over the next day or two. Its winds were down to 45 miles per hour (75 kph).

If Florence stays on it's current path, the now - category 2 storm will make landfall along the Carolina coastline Friday morning, meteorologists said. Both storms should weaken, but Helene is still expected to "pack a punch", according to the Express.

The system grew into a named tropical storm last Saturday afternoon and flared up to a Category 1 hurricane Sunday night - becoming the fifth-named hurricane of the 2018 Atlantic season.

"We do not anticipate experiencing any tropical storm or hurricane force winds, but we could experience rain and will be placed under a flash flood watch", said Governor Kenneth Mapp in a release issued late Thursday.

Colours return to the iPhone lineup, and interestingly, just like the iPhone 5c, it's on the most affordable iPhone of the year. More importantly, Apple kicked off a one-year iPhone battery replacement program that reduced the fix fee from $79 to $29.

Most of the midweek brought clouds and rain to southern New England.

As the East Coast prepares to take on Hurricane Florence, the massive storm appears to be flexing its muscles in the Atlantic. In the past, confusion and false rumors have arisen when storm advisories broadcast from radio stations were mistaken for warnings concerning an entirely different storm located hundreds of miles away.

The storm is projected to shift northeast with an increase in forward speed in the coming days, forecasters said. A hurricane watch stretches from Edisto Beach, South Carolina to the South Santee River.

North Carolina alone is forecast to get 9.6 trillion gallons, enough to cover the Tar Heel state to a depth of about 10 inches (25 centimeters). That's enough to fill the Chesapeake Bay or cover the entire state of Texas with almost 4 inches (10 centimeters) of water, he calculated.

Beyond that brief period, the cyclone should weaken a bit as it completes extratropical transition while passing just to the northwest of the Azores Islands and traversing much cooler waters. "What we will get are the remnants of the tropical storm".
