"While it's still too early to know the storm's path, we know we have to be prepared", Cooper said in a new release.

The impact, if it happens, would most likely be north of Florida, unless Florence weakens dramatically and comes, essentially, due west, which is not impossible, but is not expected at this time.

Cooper signed a transportation waiver that would allow farmers to harvest and transport their crops more quickly.

As of 8 a.m. Thursday, Hurricane Florence had 115 miles per hour winds and was located northeast of the Leeward islands, according to the National Hurricane Center.

On Wednesday, the storm was ranked a Category 4 hurricane, packing winds up to 130 miles per hour.

A map of the tropical storm activity stretching across the Atlantic Ocean looks a little like someone suddenly opened a floodgate, with a series of four storms strung out across the sea between the United States and Africa.

It is important to note that significant impacts are possible well away from the center of the storm, and that the track error can be quite large at day 5 and beyond.

The remnants of Tropical Storm Gordon were also dying off Thursday, with the storm downgraded to a depression as it moved inland over Mississippi. It's likely that Florence will be a rather strong hurricane, and it will begin to angle to the northwest again. The storm was centered about 905 miles (1,457 kilometers) east-southeast of Bermuda and moving west at 8 mph (13 kph). Helene will pass close to or perhaps over the southernmost Cabo Verde Islands Saturday night and Sunday.

In the photos, Florence seems massive, albeit somewhat disorganized since the hurricane's eye isn't immediately noticeable and the storm has lost some of it's symmetry. But it was expected to move on a mostly westward course during the next 24 hours. The weakening trend is expected to continue for a few days, and then the storm will enter an atmospheric pattern more favorable for restrengthening. Residents of the Cabo Verde Islands were advised to monitor the development of the system.
