Caribbean: Hurricane Larry is predicted to bring ‘dangerous and life-threatening’ rivers and swells to the east coast of the US and Canada by the middle of the week after overtaking Bermuda at hurricane strength, experts said.

A recent advisory by National Hurricane Center read that Larry Remains a Large Formidable Hurricane. Expected to Cause Dangerous Surf and Rip Currents Along Western Atlantic Shores Later This Week.

Larry’s wind reached 125 km / h on Sunday, just 5 km / h far from the minimum threshold for a category 4 hurricane. After falling to 120 km / h early Monday, the wind again rose to 125 km / h.

Larry is expected to pass east of Bermuda and approach the nearest on Thursday. A tropical storm advisory could be issued for the island on Tuesday, the hurricane center said.

Because Larry is such a big storm, “the impact can be felt even if the center of Larry stays far east of the island,” the hurricane center said.

According to hurricane expert Phil Klotzbach from Colorado State University, hurricanes Larry, Grace and Ida all had gusts of more than 125 km / h this season. Only three other Atlantic seasons on record had three hurricanes with winds of more than 125 km / h by this time in September: 1933, 2005 and 2008, he said.

From 23:00 On Monday, Larry was 900 miles southeast of Bermuda, moving on a road to the northwest at 10 km/h. Larry is expected to slow down in the coming days.

Forecasters said Larry will exist until next week and become the longest system of the season, surpassing Ida, which lasted nine days.

The next storm to be mentioned is Mindy.
