Hurricane activity continued to build yesterday — but none of the three storms in the Atlantic are considered threats to Bermuda.

Hurricane Dorian, which battered the Bahamas for almost two days and caused at least twenty deaths, was off the coast of northern Florida yesterday and forecast to travel up the East Coast.

The system is expected to make its closest point of approach to Bermuda at about 2am on Saturday, when it is expected to pass 532 miles to the island’s northwest as a Category 1 hurricane.

Meanwhile Tropical Storm Gabrielle was still 2,074 miles east-southeast of Bermuda yesterday. The storm is expected to pass well to the island’s east.

A third storm, Tropical Storm Fernand, made landfall yesterday in northern Mexico.

Meteorologists are still monitoring a disturbance near the island, which could become tropical in the next two days.

The system was yesterday 150 miles northeast of Bermuda, and travelling away from the island.
