As a result, two foreign governments and one local government have taken the decision to end their islands' storm warnings or storm watches.

Joyce and Helene are both now tropical storms that will continue to stay out to sea and not impact the U.S.

A Tropical Storm Watch is in effect for Montserrat, St Kitts, Nevis, Saba and St Eustatius. The tropical storm is tracking to the west at 20 miles per hour with top winds of 60 miles per hour with higher gusts.

The deepest water will occur along the immediate coast in areas of onshore winds, where the surge will be accompanied by large and destructive waves. At that time, Isaac is expected to be a tropical storm with top winds of 50 miles per hour.

Isaac's death knell was sounded around 5 a.m. Saturday when the National Hurricane Center's aircraft was unable to find a well-defined center and as a result the center reported that the storm had "dissipated".

The Hurricane Centre says Isaac is almost completely devoid of deep convection at the moment and is not trackable in radar data from Guadeloupe and Martinique.

Tolentino and other officials advised them not to return home until the lingering danger had passed. Airlines such as flagship carrier Cathay Pacific canceled many flights last week.

Despite the downgrade the National Hurricane Center (NHC) warned that "life-threatening storm surges" would continue into the night, predicting "catastrophic freshwater flooding" over parts of North and SC.

Tropical Storm Isaac was edging towards the Leeward Islands Thursday morning on a path that could bring the storm into the Cayman Islands area. This rainfall may cause risky flash flooding.

At 500 PM EDT (2100 UTC), the center of Hurricane Florence was located near latitude 30.9 North, longitude 72.5 West. Florence is moving toward the northwest near 16 miles per hour (26 km/h), and this general motion, accompanied by a gradual decrease in forward speed, is expected to continue through Saturday. "We should also continue to keep our brothers and sisters located in the Carolinas in our thoughts and prayers as Hurricane Florence approaches their area".

The hurricane center said Isaac is expected to weaken in the coming few days.

Swells generated by Isaac are affecting portions of the Lesser Antilles.
