Hurricane Teddy moves across Atlantic as powerful Category 4

Posted: Friday, September 18, 2020. 7:40 am CST.

By BBN Staff: The National Hurricane Center (NHC) is issuing advisories on Hurricane Teddy.

Teddy is a category 4 hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale.

Some fluctuations in strength are expected  during the next day or so, the NHC reports.

As of this morning, the center of Hurricane Teddy was located near latitude 21.6 North, longitude 55.4 West.

Teddy is moving toward the northwest near 12 mph (19 km/h) and this general motion is expected to continue for the next couple of days, followed by a  turn to the north by early next week.

Maximum sustained winds are near 130 mph (215 km/h) with higher gusts. 

Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 60 miles (95 km) from the center and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 230 miles (370 km).

Large swells generated by Teddy are affecting the Lesser Antilles and the northeastern coast of South America and should spread westward to the Greater Antilles, the Bahamas, Bermuda, and the east coast of the United States by the weekend. 

These swells are likely to cause life-threatening surf and rip current conditions. 

The NHC notes that interests in Bermuda should monitor the progress of Teddy.
