Humberto strengthens into a Category 3 major hurricane as it tracks toward Bermuda

September 20, 2019 Destination Global No Comments Email Email

Humberto reached Category 3 major hurricane strength on Tuesday night as it tracked closer to Bermuda. The powerful hurricane is expected to skirt just north of the islands with rain, wind and pounding seas.

As of 8 a.m. EDT Wednesday, Humberto was located about 240 miles west of Bermuda and moving east-northeast at 16 mph with maximum sustained winds of 115 mph with higher gusts. A hurricane warning is in effect for Bermuda.

The hurricane is expected to turn fully to the northeast into Thursday.

This turn to the northeast is likely to spare Bermuda from a direct strike.

However, even with the hurricane’s glancing blow to the islands, rounds of heavy rain, thunderstorms and strong winds will ramp up into early Thursday, according to AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Alex Sosnowski.

The last major hurricane to strike Bermuda was Nicole in 2016.

Swells will build, and rip currents will become stronger and more frequent than usual through Wednesday as Humberto tracks closer to the islands.
