Hurricane Category 4 approaches Bermuda

NewsDesk, Sept 23 – Forecasters expect Hurricane Fiona, a powerful Category 4 storm, to hit Bermuda on Thursday and bring the island strong winds and heavy rain.

The storm was situated 910 miles south-southwest of Halifax, Nova Scotia, and 195 miles west of Bermuda, according to the National Hurricane Center’s 11 p.m. EDT report. It was travelling at 21 mph northeast and had a top sustained wind speed of 130 mph.

The NHC said that Fiona is still quite strong and that Bermuda’s weather will get worse overnight.

From now through Friday, a north-northeastward or northeastward motion with an increase in forwarding speed is anticipated. In its update, the NHC stated, “A shift to the north with some drop in forwarding speed is predicted for Friday night through Sunday”.

It also reminded, the core of Fiona will overnight pass just to the west of Bermuda according to the predicted trajectory. Fiona’s center will then approach Nova Scotia on Friday, pass Nova Scotia on Saturday to enter the Gulf of Saint Lawrence, and then traverse Labrador on Sunday across the Labrador Sea.

On Tuesday, Fiona developed into a significant hurricane, and on Wednesday, it reached Category 4 status. When a storm’s maximum sustained winds reach at least 130 mph, it is classified as a Category 4 hurricane.

Fiona is not expected to make landfall in the United States, but experts warn that swells may move westward across the southern Atlantic into the east coast of the United States and into Canada.
