A federal disaster declaration was declared in the U.S. territory of Bermuda on Saturday as Hurricane Epsilon bore down on the British island for its second storm in as many months.
In a statement on Saturday, the National Hurricane Center noted that the storm was a Category 2 with winds between 140 and 160 miles per hour.
The federal disaster declaration declared in Bermuda includes the Atlantic region, Puerto Rico, and U.S. Virgin Islands.
Hurricane Jean, which was a Category 3 storm, passed over Bermuda on Sept. 22 and caused extensive damage on the island. The island’s government estimated it could cost between $110 million and $125 million to repair.
Epsilon was first a hurricane on Wednesday and since then moved from southeastern Turkey into the Gulf of Mexico and dissipated.
According to the NHC, the first bad weather is expected to hit Bermuda on Monday and the island is expecting sustained winds of 50 mph.
The government agency is also warning of a “significant risk of heavy rainfall and flash flooding.”
