Tropical Storm Humberto is still expected to become a hurricane as it moves away from the United States today but the good news is the tropical storm warning has been lifted for the Bahamas left with catastrophic damage from Hurricane Dorian.
Forecasters at the National Hurricane Center (NHC) say the new storm is expected to become a hurricane by Sunday night.The NHC predicts the storm will take a sharp turn northeast away from coastal Florida this weekend.The ‘not so good’ news is based on its current track, Bermuda is in Humberto’s path, although forecasters say we’re still five days out and there could be minimal impacts on the island.

According to the Bermuda Weather Service: “A trough linked to Tropical Storm Humberto will shift towards Bermuda on Tuesday and Wednesday, producing rainy periods with possible thunderstorms.

“The latest Humberto forecast advisory intensifies the system as it moves in close proximity to the island mid-week.”

As of 11pm Saturday, Humberto was located some 85 miles north of Great Abaco Island and 115 miles northeast of Freeport, Grand Bahama Island, with maximum sustained winds of 60 mph, moving north-northwest at about 6 mph.
Meanwhile, UN Secretary General António Guterres, who toured the devastation from Dorian on Abaco Island, said he was “horrified” at what he saw.
He told CBS News: “I’ve never seen such a level of systematic devastation. Hurricane Dorian has been classified as Category Five. I think it’s category hell.”
The UN is coordinating relief efforts with the Bahamian government.
“A group organized by retired Navy Seals and the conservation group Sea Shepherd has been loading up supplies to send to remote islands that may be impacted by the approaching storm.
“When CBS News caught up with them, the group had four tons of essentials — food, water and generators — it had loaded onto a ship,” the report said.Devastated by Hurricane Dorian, entire neighborhoods were flattened, homes shredded, shipping containers and boats hurled inland. Some airports were submerged, while terminals were covered in debris.

Forecasters say if current projections hold, the storm “would not actually make landfall anywhere in the US, but would instead track north, parallel to the Florida/Georgia coast, before making a hard right turn out to sea”.
