Final update: Tropical Storm Warning ends
The Bermuda Weather Service has lifted the island’s Tropical Storm Warning as Hurricane Humberto continues to speed away.
As of 3am, the storm was 195 miles north-northeast of Bermuda and speeding away at 23mph.
A small craft warning remains in effect as rough conditions in Bermuda’s waters are expected to continue today.
Kim Zuill of the BWS said: “Things are quieting down quite nicely. We have downgraded and we are no longer in Tropical Storm Warning.”
The BWS forecast said: “As Humberto moves away local conditions will rapidly improve with a bright and mainly dry day and seas rapidly decreasing.
“Northerly winds will persist for a few days bringing a cool off to our temperatures.”
The American-based National Hurricane Centre said this morning “Large swells and dangerous surf generated by Humberto will continue along the coast of Bermuda through today, and these could continue to cause coastal flooding. “Storm surge along the coast of Bermuda should subside today.”
The next update will be at approximately 6am.
