Britain is bracing itself for strong winds and heavy rain as Hurricane Helene makes its way across the Atlantic.

"Just because we have a landfall to the south doesn't mean your out of the woods because the wind around this storm is huge", National Hurricane Center Director Ken Graham said Wednesday morning.

The "cone of error" in the forecast track only predicts where the storm's center might go, and even on its edges, winds can push a powerful storm surge into shore dozens of miles from where Florence's eyewall strikes land.

The Category 3 storm will near the coast of the Carolinas Friday.

Helene is among a glut of tropical storms brewing in the region, with mass evacuations under way in southern USA states as Florence barrels across Virginia and the Carolinas. "This storm is extremely unsafe". The storm has 45 miles per hour sustained winds with higher-speed gusts. Florence remains a risky Cat 4 with max winds of 130 miles per hour with a NW movement of 15 miles per hour.

Hurricane Florence isn't the only storm threatening lives and property around the world.

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

The tropical storm remnants are passing south of the island and moving west across the Caribbean region. Earlier forecasts showed that the storm was slated to directly hit around North and SC.

Meteorologists are also keeping an eye on yet another tropical disturbance that's spinning in the western Gulf of Mexico.

Experts said residents in the Caribbean - including Puerto Rico, Hispaniola, Cuba, Jamaica and the Bahamas - and the United States mainland should stay aware of Isaac's path beyond the Lesser Antilles. Regardless of whether a system forms, they say heavy rain and gusty winds are likely along the Texas and Louisiana coast later this week.
