Direct Hit: Major Hurricane Nicole to Bermuda

This could not have worked out worse for Bermuda. Hurricane Nicole has strengthened rapidly into a Category 4 storm the night before the storm is projected to make a direct hit on the small island. Residents in Bermuda are no stranger to tropical storms and hurricanes, but one this strong is rare.


Unprecedented if it doesn't weaken before landfall.


The eye of Nicole is expected to pass very close to or directly over Bermuda early Thursday morning.  The satellite image Wednesday evening was spectacular, but the reality of what may happen in the next 24 hours on the ground is sobering.




The latest advisories from the National Hurricane Center are listed below.
