Florence officially became the first major hurricane of the 2018 hurricane season as the National Hurricane Center revealed that the now Category 4 storm had maximum sustained winds of 130 mph. Currently the storm sits 2,000 miles away from the US coastline, which makes it too far out to determine potential landfall.

The news comes one day after Tropical Storm Gordon brought huge rains to the Gulf Coast after making landfall near the Alabama – Mississippi border. The strong winds of the storm have already knocked out power in the Florida panhandle and southern Alabama, leaving 30,00 people without electricity. Gordon has claimed the life of a young boy, who was crushed when a tree fell on a mobile home in Pensacola.
