There is a lot going on in the oceans of our world and things are not looking that great at the moment. If you look at a map of the storms before us you will see something that looks almost unreal.
Four of these powerful storms can be seen from space and are quite terrifying but the rest are no walk in the park either. Three of these storms are moving across the Atlantic one by one as it seems headed right for the East Coast here in the US as well as the Caribbean. Hurricane Florence, Tropical Storm Isaac, and Hurricane Helene are all storms we should be paying close attention to.
Now, this is not to say they are the only storms present in the oceans today. There is also Tropical Depression Paul, Tropical Storm Olivia, and several other stormy bodies that could become something dangerous as time passes. TS Isaac has continued to move west with 70 mph winds and it appears will continue to do so in the days to come. It is expected to reach hurricane status before Friday.
Hurricane Florence is according to ABC13 expected to bring serious catastrophic damage/impact to the Carolinas Friday which means everyone should at the moment be making preparations to ensure their safety. Florence could come with category 4 winds and also flood both the Carolinas and the Virginias.
All the while this is happening it seems TS Olivia will also be making her way to the Hawaiian Islands but will hopefully weaken as it passes. This will also bring forth flash-flooding and affect areas already affected by Hurricane Lane not too long ago. Tim Heller of ABC13 actually says that in his 35 years being a weatherman on television he has never seen this much activity in the tropics at the same time. It is both shocking and unnerving at the same time.

This is no joke. There is a lot going right now and we are at peak in hurricane season. Do what you need to do to stay safe and if you can help anyone in need during this time, please do. We all need to come together before things get worse and make an effort to do better. Hurricanes take lives and ruin homes, they are truly terrifying in every sense of the word.
