this storm. lawrence. yeah, the storm continuing to churn and actually gaining some strength as we're seeing it move. >> away from the islands. that's the good news. but as it moves away, start to see the strengthening sf the system. and that's where we'll see overnight tonight and tomorrow. this couple is going really watch it closely as likely to get near bermuda as lpwe head in toward the next fe days. so here it is. you can see very impressive looking tightly eyes. you see rolling off the coastline. now the hurricane force are about 45 miles out from the center of the storm system. that's where you're seeing those category 4 hurricane force winds. and that's why we're tracking this very closely will want to know exactly where that eye is going, because that is the most dangerous part of the hurricane. now, the latest track has currently at 130 mile an hour winds sustained right around the core of that storm. and it is moving to the north now at 9 miles per hour. you can see watches and warnings already going up and bermuda. you see right there. watch what happens as we move through time, though. here's the good news. i think they're
getting close to bermuda. but right now live forecast models have been staying off the coastline. they're going to feel the effects of it. they're kind of in that right front quadrant of the hurricane's path. and usually that is a very dangerous area. but they're far enough away. they're not likely to see those hurricane force winds probably tropical storm force winds. they'll see some rise in the sea level as well with the storm surge there, too. but i think for the most part, i think they're going to miss the burn of that storm. maybe more importantly, watch latest track, though. it's not done there. yeah, that's right. looks to possibly come on shore near a nova scotia a possible is weaker storm, but still as a hurricane on saturday morning, that could cause, of course, is some flooding along the coastal areas there. they'll see the upstorm surge to go along with that as well. so the storm system not done by any means. it's got a long way to go. the track is likely to shift here in the next couple of days. but the good news for bermuda doesn't look like they're going to take a direct hit. a cat 4 is a direct in and that is a dangerous or potentially deadly storm right now. doesn't look like it's going to come on shore, right?
