TS Watch issued for Bermuda as Hurricane Humberto strengthens


    A Tropical Storm Watch has been issued for Bermuda, as Hurricane Humberto continues to strengthen in the Atlantic.

    Humberto currently contains sustained winds near 150 km/h, and is expected to get stronger over the next 48 hours.

    The National Hurricane Centre expects it to become a major hurricane by Tuesday night or Wednesday morning.

    It is forecast to approach Bermuda on Wednesday night.

    Meanwhile eyes remain on a well-defined small low pressure system located about 1200 miles east of the Lesser Antilles.

    The NHC says it continues to produce disorganized showers and thunderstorms, however, environmental conditions are conducive for the formation of a tropical depression during the next day or so.
