October 18, 2014 2:00 PM |

Latest Update : Hurricane Gonzalo made landfall as a category 2 hurricane with 110 mph winds along the south-central coast of Bermuda. Despite Bermuda being a small target, the center of Gonzalo's large eye still passed over the islands for the second time in five days.

Gonzalo heads towards Bermuda
After scattering showers today in Puerto Rico, Gonzalo spins away from Caribbean Islands and heads towards Bermuda. It is currently moving towards west/northwest followed by a recurve towards northeast. The category-3 storm, Gonzalo is estimated to convert into a category-4 storm before it hits Bermuda by Friday.

Packed with sustained wind of 195 kmph, gust of 237 kmph and speed of 20 kmph, Gonzalo would strengthen due to warm oceanic water and low wind shear.
There could be unforeseen disrupting to travel and structural damage to homes on the shores of Bermuda.

Tropical storm is expected to strengthen in next 48 hours and become a hurricane, packed with sustained wind of 103 kmph when it reached Hawaii by Friday.

However, a gradual weakening is forecast for the weekend as the system will encounter increasing wind shear. Though, heavy rain and gusty winds will prevail over the weekend in the area.

The Hawaiian Islands were hit by Tropical Storm Iselle on Aug. 8, causing extensive damage on the Big Island, and Tropical Storm Julio nearly hit the islands a week later.
