Major Category 4 Hurricane Fiona approaches Bermuda 

Posted: Wednesday, September 21, 2022. 7:09 am CST.

By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: Forecasters at the National Hurricane Center (NHC) have issued a hurricane watch for Bermuda as powerful category 4 Hurricane Fiona approaches. 

 On the forecast track, the center of Fiona will continue to move away from the Turks and  Caicos today, and approach Bermuda late on Thursday.

Maximum sustained winds are near 130 mph (215 km/h) with higher gusts.  Fiona is a category 4 hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale.  

Some additional strengthening is forecast through tonight, with some fluctuations in intensity possible on Thursday.

 Swells generated by Fiona are affecting the northern coast of Hispaniola, the Turks and Caicos Islands, and the southeastern and central Bahamas.  Forecasters say that these swells will continue to spread westward across the southwestern Atlantic toward the northwestern Bahamas and the east coast of the United States during the next day or two.

Swells from Fiona are expected to reach Bermuda by early Thursday.

The swells could cause life-threatening surf and rip current conditions, the NHC noted.
