The center of the hurricane is predicted to move over the southwestern Atlantic Ocean between Bermuda and the Bahamas by Wednesday and could intensify into a Category 4 storm, with winds reaching 130-156 miles per hour, before it makes US landfall sometime Thursday or early Friday.

Forecasters were also tracking two more storms further out in the Atlantic, with Tropical Storm Isaac expected to become a hurricane later on Sunday as it barreled toward the Caribbean.

Over the weekend, the governors of Virginia, North Carolina and SC declared states of emergency, according to CNN.

Forecasters at the NHC said Florence would continue to strengthen and "is expected to remain an extremely risky major hurricane through Thursday". Forecast models show the center of Florence cutting between the Bahamas and Bermuda on September 11 and September 12 before making landfall on the night of September 13, and it appears that the storm is still targeting around North and SC.

Florence was producing large swells expected to reach from the northern Caribbean to the southern coasts of Canada´s Maritime provinces. Such swells can lead to risky surf and rip currents, the NHC warned.

Florence had maximum sustained winds of 105 mph, and was about 1,000 miles away from Bermuda as of 5 a.m.

Some portions of the Carolinas could see as much as 20 inches of rain from Florence, the National Weather Service said, which would lead to river flooding that "could last for days or weeks" after the storm.

"Satellite imagery indicates that the maximum sustained winds have increased to near 105 miles per hour (165 km/h) with higher gusts".

Isaac is forecast to become a hurricane by Sunday evening or Monday. The storm was centered about 750 miles southeast of Bermuda and moving west at 6 mph.

Florence is still moving slowly, and could become a hurricane soon, the National Weather Center said. Forecasters had predicted between nine and 13 named storms this season, four to seven of them hurricanes.

Henry McMaster, governor of SC, warned the United States should be braced for the hurricane to hit.

She said: "Florence has our attention, and it should because by Thursday we should be seeing major impacts along the south-east coast".
