Hurricane Nicole Takes Direct Aim At Bermuda

Hurricane Nicole has strengthened this morning, now a major Category 3 hurricane with winds of 135 mph. It is unfortunately on a path that will take the center very close to or directly over Bermuda where a Hurricane Warning is in effect.

The center was 55 miles south-southwest of Bermuda as of 8 am Thursday, moving north-northeast at 15 mph. Even if the eye does not pass directly over Bermuda, Nicole is a large storm with hurricane-force winds extending 65 miles from the center. Devastation is likely.

Once past Bermuda, Nicole will stay over the ocean through the next 5 days and will not be a threat to the East Coast of the United States.
