Tropical storm forms but not expected to threaten island

Imagery from the US-based National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

A tropical storm has formed to the east-northeast of Bermuda but is not expected to hit the island.

The US-based National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration confirmed that Tropical Storm Martin, which formed earlier today, was about 630 miles away from Bermuda at 5pm and moving eastward away from the island.

The storm is moving at 13mph and has 60mph winds with stronger gusts, with tropical storm force winds extending up to 105 miles from the storm’s centre.

The system is expected to speed further away from the island and potentially become a hurricane tomorrow night before transitioning into a “powerful extratropical system” on Thursday.

While hurricane development typically peaks in the period between August and October, the season does not conclude until the end of November.
