Major hurricanes have their destructive power set on possibly targeting the United States 

On September 9, 2018, Florence, Isaac, and Helene were all churning up the North Atlantic. The trio of storms is visible in this image acquired by the Suomi NPP satellite.

Hurricane Florence was the most dangerous for people in the United States. Forecasters at the National Hurricane Center expect the slow-moving Category 4 storm to reach the coast of the Carolinas on September 12 or 13, bringing a life-threatening storm surge, exceptionally heavy inland rains, and damaging winds.

Isaac, a much weaker will reach the Caribbean by September 13. Helene is still far in the Atlantic basin and could possible push north away from the US mainland.

Another unnamed tropical disturbance has a high chance of developing and moving into the Gulf of Mexico later in the week
