Igor Heading For Bermuda

Recommended Posts

IGOR HEADING FOR CLOSE CALL WITH BERMUDA- CONDITIONS WILL BEGIN TO WORSEN TOMORROW

Looking at the latest satellite pictures, Igor seems to be trying to regain some strength once again. The powerful hurricane has been on the maps since September 8th! Tomorrow, it will really begin to bear down on Bermuda and make its closest approach, if not go right over the island, on Sunday. Tropical storm winds extend out some 345 miles from the center- quite a bit more than normal. Hurricane force winds extend outward up to 105 miles from the center. Bermuda will be lashed no matter how close the core gets. It is probably going to take another day of computer model runs to know just how close the eye will pass to the island and even then, it may come down to the final hours as Igor closes the gap. Large swells are already impacting Bermuda and portions of the East Coast of the United States, the Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico. These hazards will continue throughout the weekend and will actually get worse for portions of the U.S. coastline. It is critical that people going to the beach heed the advisories from the local NWS office on surf conditions. Beach erosion will be possible in some of the more vulnerable areas that see this type of problem during hurricanes and Nor'easters.
