Tropical Storm Isla, which is now a hurricane, hovered over Bermuda on Sunday before heading out to sea and out to sea. According to the National Hurricane Center, the storm had maximum sustained winds of 75 mph. At 5 p.m. on Sunday, Isla was 35 miles east of Bermuda with little change in strength expected. Bermuda, which sits roughly halfway between Florida and Bermuda, has not faced a hurricane in nine years. According to the U.S. National Hurricane Center, Isla will move parallel to Bermuda and may approach it late on Monday. Once passing, Isla will be at least a Category 1 hurricane. In the wake of Isla, there is no tropical weather threat to Florida.

It seems it’s pivoting right now, going back and forth.” At 3 p.m. on Sunday, Bermuda was placing a high priority on its core of life-saving measures on Sunday, including shutting down ports and advising residents to prepare emergency kits. An airport may have been closed to flights as well. Just before noon on Sunday, the BBC reported Isla’s winds were more than 200 miles per hour at times. RELATED: Storm Isla lumbers toward Bermuda From the U.S. National Hurricane Center: Isla is merging with a large cold front and may experience some diminishing winds over the next 48 hours as it moves to the northeast and away from Bermuda. Most of Isla’s energy and potential tropical activity may remain well to the east of Bermuda in the Atlantic basin. However, forecasters are keeping an eye on any additional strengthening that may occur on Sunday as Isla remains well within the system’s central circulation.
