For its part, the tropical storm Helene, located southwest of the Portuguese Azores, has tilted its course to the north and must be maintained with a similar course and speed of translation over the waters of the eastern Atlantic.
The storm would be expected to die out by Wednesday, Ms Smith said.
Hurricane Isaac, we hardly knew ye.
The U.S. National Hurricane Center (NHC) said Helene has 90 miles per hour winds, meaning it is a Category 1 storm.
Despite the county remaining in a state of emergency, Hurricane Florence is beginning to track more northwest, which means the community will feel fewer effects from the storm, according to the National Weather Service.
According to the National Hurricane Center's Tropical Analysis and Forecast Branch, the waves were measured in Hurricane Florence's northeast quadrant.
Florence is now 485 miles from Wilmington, North Carolina. Top sustained winds are now about 65 miles per hour (100 kph) and the storm is moving to the west-southwest at 5 miles per hour (7 kph) - a track that is expected to continue through early Saturday.

At 5 a.m. EDT (0900 UTC), the center of Hurricane Helene was located near latitude 23.5 degrees north and longitude 37.3 degrees west. Helene is now about 1,170 miles (1,885 km) miles southwest of the Azores. "Some wind, no rain and rising sun".
Coastal watches and warnings have been canceled.
There is the potential for damaging winds with gusts up to 70mph possible, with sustained winds of 30 to 40mph.
Beyond that brief period, the cyclone should weaken a bit as it completes extratropical transition while passing just to the northwest of the Azores Islands and traversing much cooler waters. "We got thrown into mailboxes, houses, trees", said Holt, who had stayed at home because of a doctor's appointment that was later cancelled.
"Honestly, I grew up in Wilmington". It should dissipate by early next week, the hurricane center said.
We started tracking Helene as it pushed off of the coastline of Africa and intensified.
