MIDWAY, Fl. (WTXL) -- Hurricane Florence is bearing down on North Carolina. In addition to Florence, three other tropical cyclone are still active in the Atlantic: Tropical Storm Helene, Tropical Depression Isaac, and Tropical Storm Joyce.
Florence: The Category 1 hurricane has been inching closer and closer to landfall near Wilmington, North Carolina. As of the 5:00am advisory, maximum sustained winds were at 90 mph, and the center of the hurricane was located about 10 miles east of Wilmington, North Carolina. While North Carolina is receiving the worst of the rain, winds, and storm surge right now, South Carolina and inland section of both states will see conditions deteriorate this weekend.

Helene: The former hurricane continues to accelerate north in the eastern Atlantic, located about 760 miles SW of Lajes Air Base in the Azores. The tropical storm had maximum sustained winds of 65 mph. The storm will approach the Azores, and a TROPICAL STORM WARNING is in effect for the all of the Azores islands.
Isaac: The weakening tropical depression is expected to move west to west/northwest as a depression. It is forecast to stay weak and disorganized due to persistent wind shear in the Caribbean Sea. Further intensification is not anticipated at this time.
Joyce: Now a tropical storm, Joyce (located 1090 miles WSW of the Azores) continues to move SSW. It is expected to turn northeast and speed up into the far northern Atlantic, likely not threatening anyone.
