Isaac is forecast to gradually weaken over the next few days and could degenerate into a tropical wave at any time.

As Graham says, "just because you have a landfall to your south doesn't mean you're out of the woods, because the winds are huge around this system". This rainfall may cause risky flash flooding, N.H.C. said.

From the Ocracoke Inlet to the North Carolina-Virginia border and from the South Santee River to North Myrtle Beach, the NHC forecast that water could rise as high as 6 feet.

Florence, a potentially life-threatening Category 4 hurricane, is on track to make landfall in North Carolina or SC on Thursday (Sept. 13).

"Life-threatening, catastrophic flash flooding and significant river flooding is likely over portions of the Carolinas late this week into early next week, as Florence is expected to slow down as it approaches the coast and moves inland". "Intermittent rain bands are expected on St. Croix as Isaac passes south of the big island".

Winds of 40 mph extend outward up to 115 miles (185 km) from the center of the tropical cyclone. Florence has 130 miles per hour winds, enough to make it a unsafe Category 4 hurricane. Multiple states have already declared a state of emergency in preparation for the damaging flooding that Florence is likely to bring.

The turbulent weather is coming off the back of one of number of major storms now raging in the Atlantic, another of which, Hurricane Florence, has caused mass evacuations on the east coast of United States this week.

"Hurricane Joyce is also in the Atlantic so we need to see how those two systems are going to move around each other because that could have an impact".

The implications of a major landfalling hurricane are devastating.

Tropical Storm Issac was one of four weather systems rolling across the Atlantic Thursday, including the unsafe category 2 Hurricane Florence, which was packing winds of nearly 100mph as it headed towards the Carolinas on the east coast of the United States.
