Three hurricanes and two tropical storms surround the US


Two tropical systems, Madeline and Lester, could pose hazards to Hawaii from the middle of the week into Labor Day weekend.
Madeline and Lester are both major hurricanes at this time and are expected to weaken by the time they reach Hawaii.
However, both are expected to be either a strong tropical storm or category 1 hurricane when they make their closest approach to the islands.
Latest indications suggest that Madeline will continue its westward path before taking a slight jog to the south as it approaches the Big Island on Wednesday, according to AccuWeather Meteorologist Ed Vallee.
On its approach, Madeline will kick up rough surf and rip currents, especially along the east-facing beaches.
At this time, the greatest threat for flooding downpours and gusty winds are expected to focus on eastern portions of the Big Island from Wednesday into Thursday.
Sporadic power outages are possible.
Tropical Depression Seven strengthened into hurricane Gaston during today with another system attempting to form around the northern Caribbean islands.
Tropical Depression 8 to batter Carolinas with rough surf, downpours
Tropical Depression Eight could become a tropical storm while brushing the North Carolina coast with rough surf, downpours and locally gusty thunderstorms into midweek.
Part of the old circulation from Fiona and an old non-tropical storm system helped to spawn Tropical Depression Eight southwest of Bermuda this past weekend.
