September 20, 2022

Tuesday Morning Update 

The big story continues to be Hurricane Fiona. It has been upgraded to A Major Hurricane Category 3, with 115 mph winds as it crosses Grand Turk Island this morning and is getting stronger. It is expected to track east of the Bahamas and head towards Bermuda.

Locally we still have warm, but less humid weather today.  A strong cold front will bring in a taste of Fall with the arrival of Autumn later this week. That is the system which will push Fiona away from the East Coast. 

Hurricane Fiona Update

As of 5 AM EST the eye was located 20 miles from Grand Turk Island.  Winds are up to 115 mph, and it is expected to continue strengthening as it travels north.

Flooding Video: 

Some places have had OVER 30 inches of rain. Anna Maria here states Puerto Rico has not recovered since the 2017 hurricane.
