Default Bermuda is facing a very dangerous storm

My weather service (crown weather) is predicting wind gusts up to 200mph at 7pm Friday. Never been there but would like to. Sure hope this Hurricane abates before landfall.

God be with everyone in Bermuda. Looks like they are going to get hit pretty hard.

spent my honeymoon on Bermuda. Beautiful place! I'm praying for the people there and hoping the island is spared major damage.

From crownweather, not a 4 at this time but still very bad news

Forecast Weather Conditions Across Bermuda Today Through Tonight: Gonzalo will make a direct hit on Bermuda this afternoon through this evening. Winds will rapidly increase to 40 to 70 mph along with increasingly heavier rainfall and rough seas this morning. These winds will increase to hurricane force by this afternoon. The most extreme conditions with the hurricane will occur from late this afternoon through this evening and this will include winds of 100 to 125 mph with wind gusts to 140 mph, very heavy rainfall, a storm surge of at least 10 feet and seas of 35 to 40 feet. It needs to be pointed out that the height of the hurricane will be coming at the time of high tide (which is 5 pm) and this will only make the flooding even worse.

Best Wishes to everyone staying safe in Bermuda.

I lived there for a year back in the 80s and met lots of great people.

Cheers,

Dave
