Hurricane Florence Approaches Bermuda

CD Hurricane Florence Approaches Bermuda

"Bermuda's government told residents to prepare for powerful winds and high seas on Sunday as Hurricane Florence headed toward the British Atlantic territory and looked poised to strengthen.

After gaining hurricane status early on Sunday, the storm's maximum sustained winds were at 90 mph (145 kph), easily making it a Category 1 hurricane, the least powerful on the Saffir-Simpson scale, the U.S. National Hurricane Center said.

Forecasters predicted Florence would intensify to Category 2 as it passed Bermuda on Monday morning. Category 2 hurricanes have top sustained winds of at least 96 mph (154 kph) and are capable of moderate damage."
