Severe thunderstorms capable of producing tornadoes and potentially damaging winds could impact Bermuda on Friday as Hurricane Epsilon barrels into the island.

The U.S. National Hurricane Center said Epsilon is expected to pass east of Bermuda early on Friday, but forecasters have warned that it could hit the island later in the day.

Bermuda has limited airstrips, meaning that the country could be particularly vulnerable to severe weather.

Bermuda’s Met Office is expected to issue a tropical warning by 5 p.m. on Friday. Severe weather warnings have already been issued for Bermuda. Meteorologist Liam Collier said on Twitter: “Isolated severe thunderstorms and tropical downpours could develop in the west of Bermuda.”

Residents have taken to social media to express their concerns about the storm.
