Powerful Hurricane Gonzalo Approaching Bermuda

Powerful Hurricane Gonzalo Approaching Bermuda

MIAMI (AP) — Hurricane Gonzalo is roaring toward the British territory of Bermuda as a powerful Category 4 storm and forecasters say it will likely bring damaging winds and life-threatening storm surge to the island in coming hours.

The U.S. National Hurricane Center in Miami says conditions in Bermuda, where a hurricane warning is in effect, will begin deteriorating later Friday morning. Gonzalo is about 240 miles (385 kilometers) south-southwest of Bermuda and packing top sustained winds of 130 mph (215 kph)s.

Forecasters say Gonzalo is moving north-northeast at 15 mph (24 kph) and its eye is expected near Bermuda by Friday afternoon or evening.

Bermuda residents have been rushing to make preparations for Gonzalo, days after Tropical Storm Fay damaged homes and knocked down trees and power lines there.
