The start of September has brought with it the beginning of hurricane season, and a new storm system named “Hurricane Florence” is brewing in the Atlantic.

The peak of hurricane season falls on Sept. 10 and will remain active through Nov. 10.

Hurricane Florence has sustained winds of more than 125mph according to the National Weather Service.

Current European and American models of the storm show it hitting the North Carolina Outer Banks, which is a “significant westward shift” from earlier predictions according to a tweet from research meteorologist Ryan Maue.

Hurricane Florence is still roughly 2,000 miles off the eastern seaboard and will continue to shift depending on weather conditions in the Atlantic Ocean over the next seven to ten days.

UNC-Wilmington has yet to comment on the progress of Hurricane Florence.

This is a developing story and more information can be expected in the coming days.
