Hurricane Helene could bring severe weather to the United Kingdom next week

2 p.m. update: Florence within 110 miles of Wilmington

2 p.m. update: Florence within 110 miles of Wilmington

"There are no coastal watches or warnings in effect", said the NHC in its 11 a.m. September 12 update.

This general motion is expected to continue through the next few days.

But the weather system will have weakened by the time it hits the western side of the United Kingdom, becoming more of a storm, the Met Office said.

The tropical storm-force winds from Helene should begin impacting the Azores around 8 a.m. Monday.

Tropical storm watches were in effect Tuesday for Antigua, Montserrat and St. Kitts and Nevis.

Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 105 miles (165 km) from the center.

Tropical storm force winds are in the 39-73 miles per hour range, says NOAA. Although this tropical storm will not be near Arkansas and Oklahoma, you may have family or friends that are in the unsafe path. Here's how it breaks down: Expect a breezy and mostly dry day Friday, with increasing winds up to 20mph.

From North Myrtle Beach to Cape Fear, and Cape Lookout to the Ocracoke Inlet, water could rise 6-9 feet.

Numerous communities throughout the region have issued either mandatory or voluntary evacuation orders.

"Florence is forecast to be an extremely unsafe major hurricane as it approaches the US coast", the NHC said.

Speaking during a visit to Moscow less than an hour after the hurricane made landfall in North Carolina, Perry says "we've done this many times before".

The storm is now around 530 miles southeast of Cape Fear, North Carolina, and is moving west-northwest at 17 mph.

As of 2 p.m., the slow-moving storm barely had Category 1 hurricane strength and was nearly at a standstill over southeastern North Carolina, according to the Associated Press.

The city warns that people "may need to move up to the second story" but tells them to stay put as "we are coming to get you".

There remains some uncertainty in the track of the system.

A smaller hurricane dubbed Isaac is reportedly heading for the Caribbean, while Hurricane Helene - now also in the Atlantic - is forecast to track towards the UK.

"Regardless of development, heavy rainfall and gusty winds are expected across portions of northeastern Mexico, Texas, and Louisiana late this week, and interests there should monitor the progress of this system", it added.
