Hurricane Florence strengthened into a Category 4 hurricane Monday afternoon

Meanwhile in the Pacific, Tropical Storm Olivia was close to Hawaii, where tropical storm warnings and watches are in effect, according to the Pacific Hurricane Center.

Hurricane Warnings are in effect from the South Santee River in SC to Duck, North Carolina.

The storm is moving at 17 miles per hour to the west and has 60 miles per hour winds. In addition to wind impacts, there's going to be a unsafe storm surge ("wall of water" that arrives) and then persistent rainfall.

For this reason, all warnings and storm surveillance for the Lesser Antilles have been raised. Maximum sustained winds are near 60 miles per hour or 95 km/h.

Mid September is peak hurricane season and it's not unusual to have multiple storms in the ocean at the same time.

Officials in several states have declared states of emergency, including Virginia and Maryland where coastal areas are still recovering from summer storms.

However, hurricane watches are in effect for Guadeloupe, Martinique and Dominica, while storm warnings have been issued for Antigua, Montserrat and St. Kitts and Nevis.

Some slight strengthening is possible during the next couple of days.

The Portuguese weather service said that wind gusts of up to 74 mph are possible by the weekend in the Azores, an island chain about 850 miles west of Portugal. Based on the current forecast track, the North Carolina coast is most susceptible to a direct strike while impacts are to extend far from the center.

KHOU reports the storm could bring 10 inches of rain to isolated spots in South Texas. "However, upper-level winds are forecast to become a little more conducive for development, and a tropical depression could still form Thursday or Friday before the system reaches the western Gulf Coast".
