Hurricane Irma set to bypass Bermuda

Category 4 Hurricane Irma is expected to pass 875 miles south of Bermuda on Thursday morning.

But the Bermuda Weather Service's 6pm update last night warned that the storm, due to be closest at 11am, could move closer to the island after that.

Irma — packing maximum winds of more than 132mph with gusts in excess of 161mph — is predicted to pass through the Caribbean in the next few days.

On its present track, it is likely to impact on Antigua and Barbuda, Anguilla and Puerto Rico. The Dominican Republic and Cuba are also in its projected path.

Yesterday, Irma was about 1,319 miles south east of Bermuda.
