Hurricane anger fades as aussies return home from hurricane season
A US National Hurricane Center storm alert was issued for parts of North Carolina, which saw the strongest tropical storm to strike North Carolina since 2012.
The warning said: “We will continue to monitor the threat from Harvey and Irma as a tropical cyclone approaching near or over the state, but the possibility that this may be a season-like low does not present itself until it becomes a hurricane.”
“As the storm approaches and the temperature starts to rise, the risks of flash flooding are increased and flash surge flooding will also be severe. As conditions progress along the storm’s path, it is likely that these risk elements will intensify as Harvey approaches,” the forecaster said.
“바카라At the same time, the risk of flooding from a severe storm surge will diminish as Harvey approaches, but there is no guarantee that this occurs by the time landfall is imminent.”
The storm has already claimed several lives in Texas, bringing the state to the brink of a full-blown disaster.
Authorities are warning residents to brace for a massive flood.
In addition, officials say there are serious impacts to the lives of at least 10,000 people in the Texas Gulf Coast region and the area around Puerto Rico as a result of the storm.

The National Hurricane Center is warning people to prepare for life-threatening flooding in Louisiana, as the storm heads toward Texas and southern Florida.
“As expected, Harvey is moving toward Texas. The storm is moving at an alarming rate,” the US tropical weather centre wrote on Friday.
“Most areas of Texas remain vulnerable to flooding due to strong pressure and high winds, with the most immediate risk being the high altitudes of the Brazos and Galveston rivers that feed into the Gulf of Mexico, and the Texas Panhandle and the Caddo Paris
