Flash flooding in eastern Texas forces hospital evacuation, home rescues

That turn should keep the storm away from the US, but several computer models show Jerry will track at least very close to Bermuda early next week.

The U.S. National Hurricane Center says Humberto's maximum sustained winds were about 100 miles per hour (155 kph) Tuesday afternoon and it's predicted to strengthen, possibly to major hurricane force by Wednesday morning.

It is expected to remain a major hurricane through early tomorrow.

Officials in Bermuda say Hurricane Humberto blew off rooftops, toppled trees and knocked out power as it blew past the British Atlantic island.

The Bermuda Weather Service said Humberto would bring unsafe sea conditions to the island ahead of it.

Jerry is now the 4th hurricane of the 2019 Atlantic hurricane season.

Caines said Thursday that, "The worst of it is behind us".

Humberto is a large hurricane and continues to grow in size.

Also in the Atlantic, Jerry now is a tropical storm with winds of 70 miles per hour.

The map terrain will feature land, sea, and air, which will be traversable by ATVs, helicopters, and tactical rafts. Players can play solo, in duos or in teams of four and can switch between first-person or third-person perspective.

Two to 4 inches of rain, risky waves along south-facing beaches and a storm surge of 1 to 3 feet also are expected, the hurricane center said.

The storm had maximum sustained winds of 70 mph (110 kph) and it was centered about 15 miles (25 kilometers) west-northwest of Cabo Corrientes, which juts into the Pacific below Puerto Vallarta.

The last time Bermuda suffered a hurricane landfall was in 2014, with category 1 Hurricane Fay, and category 3 Hurricane Gonzalo less than a week later.

A tropical depression in the eastern Atlantic is expected to strengthen into Tropical Storm Jerry on Tuesday or Wednesday, and then into a hurricane, forecasters said.

The storm grew larger and more powerful Wednesday morning, with maximum sustained winds of almost 120 miles per hour, with higher gusts.

"Although the core of Jerry is now expected to pass north of the islands, tropical-storm-force winds and locally heavy rainfall are possible, and tropical storm watches have been issued for a portion of this area", it said.

The storm was centred west of Bermuda early on Wednesday and was moving to the east-northeast.

Meanwhile, Tropical Storm Lorena formed off Mexico's Pacific Coast, and forecasters predicted heavy rains and flooding by Thursday, likely without it reaching hurricane force.

Locally, Tropical Storm Imelda will not impact us much except to produce a few scattered showers the next couple days and clouds to hold temperatures in the 80s.
