Erika to strengthen but is not a threat

Meteorologists are expecting Tropical Storm Erika to strengthen, but the system is not considered to be a threat to Bermuda.

As of press time last night, the storm was 1,197 kilometres southeast of the Island and moving in a westerly direction. It is set to turn in a northerly direction and strengthen during the week, potentially reaching hurricane strength, but is not forecast to approach the Island.

Tropical Storm watches were in effect for Montserrat, Antigua and Barbuda, St Kitts and Nevis, Anguilla and several other Islands.
