Hurricane Florence, a Category 3, takes aim at Bermuda, potentially East Coast

Storm season peaks: Hurricane Florence still far from landfall, uncertainty remains for East Coast

Hurricane Florence's Path Shifts Westward, Putting Bermuda On Notice

"This is a classic recipe for a quick intensification trend, and Florence is expected to become a major hurricane by days 4 and 5", wrote Robbie Berg, a specialist with the hurricane center in a Friday afternoon forecast discussion.

Hurricane Florence is our first major hurricane of the 2018 season in the Atlantic. If the southern track continues it may avoid making any landfall in Bermuda and only hit the United States, but Bermuda is likely to feel at least some impact.

As of Wednesday, the hurricane had maximum sustained winds of 125 miles per hour, making it a Category 3 storm.

The president told reporters on Air Force One on Friday that "I don't know Papadopoulos". The deal included a possible prison sentence of up to five years and three months.

A BWS spokesman said at 6am that Florence has now been upgraded to a potential threat to Bermuda as the centre is expected to pass within 460 miles of the island in the next 72 hours.

In 2017, Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, Jose, and Maria wreaked a significant amount of damage, costing the government $200 billion, and claimed more than 100 lives.

While we still have a long way to go and there will be changes/fine tuning in the forecast, Hurricane Florence is running out of opportunities to evade the East Coast. It was moving toward the west-northwest.

Apple issued the recall at the end of August saying affected devices may experience restarts, a frozen screen, or won't turn on. The name iPhone XS Max just sounds odd, nearly something the company is putting out there in an attempt to catch leakers.

"While it is too early to change plans, all interests in Bermuda and along the East Coast of the USA should closely monitor the movement of Florence over this weekend and next week", AccuWeather hurricane expert Dan Kottlowski said. The disturbance, labeled for the sake of forecast modeling as Invest 92, has the potential to become a long-lived tropical storm or hurricane over the next week to ten days as it moves slowly to the west. Or, it could make an actual landfall, with more severe impacts at the beaches, and wind & rain farther inland here in the Piedmont. And folks on the East Coast remain on high alert. At this point, it appears like it will be moving into the Central Caribbean by the middle to end of the week as Hurricane Isaac. Some forecast models showed Florence slamming into land by late next week, while others indicated the storm would curve away from shore.

The Emergency Measures Organisation, which is expected to meet on Monday, announced that public transport, schools and government offices would operate as normal that day.
