    Here is what happened to Robert Simmons Jr. and his kitten, Survivor, after the picture was taken.
    National Weather Service animation showing the lifespan of Hurricane Florence from the west coast of Africa to North Carolina in the US. The one-minute time lapse video begins on Aug. 29 and shows Florence slowly taking shape, then rushing across the Atlantic before it stalls and churns along the coast of the Carolinas. The hurricane, which reached Category 4 status but hit the coast as a Category 2, made landfall on Sept. 14.
    “After Florence: What’s Next in the Atlantic?” (9/19/18) “The remnants of Florence moved off the Northeast U.S. coast on Tuesday as an elongated zone of low pressure. We may not have seen the last of Florence, though. As a high-latitude upper low stretches out the zone of ex-Florence’s low pressure zone even more, there is the potential for two powerful low pressure systems to develop from Florence’s remnants, with one of them transitioning to a tropical or subtropical storm. The most confident forecast is for the northern branch of Florence’s remnants to evolve into a powerful non-tropical low that will intensify just west of Europe, then plow across Ireland and England over the weekend and slam into northern Europe by Monday. It’s been a stormy week already in the U.K., with the remnants of Helene moving through on Tuesday; a midlatitude storm dubbed Ali bringing winds as high as 91 mph in Ireland on Wednesday, resulting in at least one fatality; and another midlatitude storm set to cross the U.K. on Thursday with more wind and heavy rain.” See map @
