The Category 4 Storm Heads In Bermuda's Direction And Threatens

Filled under:

Earl’s maximum sustained winds surged to 135 miles per hour yesterday as it was about 100 miles north-northeast of San Juan, Puerto Rico.the temperature crested at 92 at 2:23 p.m. at Logan International Airport similar numbers were logged elsewhere in Eastern Massachusetts. More 90-degree heat was expected today, which would be the third day in a row of such high temperatures,according to the National Weather Service.

It was joined in the Atlantic by Tropical Storm Fiona, which formed 900 miles to its east.This is a good time to remind everyone that the National Hurricane Center average track forecast errors are 200 to 300 miles at days 4 and 5,” according to the center’s own analysis. “Given this uncertainty it is too soon to determine what portion of the U.S. East Coast might see a direct impact.

Fiona has maximum winds of 40 mph (65 kph). Fiona is predicted to follow roughly in Earl's path, tracking to the east of many Caribbean islands.Danielle started causing problems for U.S. East Coast residents this weekend with large waves and dangerous surf conditions. News reports indicated that more than 100 people were rescued from dangerous currents in beaches from Maryland to New Jersey over the weekend. Waves near 10 feet (3 meters) however are expected to develop this afternoon along parts of Newfoundland, Canada as Danielle tracks northward.


  1. Great example of lazy journalism. Earl is forecast by the National Hurricane Center to pass some 400 miles away from Bermuda at its closest point. So if by "in Bermuda's Direction" you mean in the same ocean then you are correct. Otherwise a very misleading headline.
