The eye of Hurricane Paulette crossed over Bermuda this morning, bringing heavy rain, rough surf, and damaging winds to the island in the Atlantic.
In the latest update from the National Hurricane Center, Paulette was roughly 55 miles north-northwest of Bermuda. With a minimum central pressure of 970 mb or 28.64 inches and maximum sustained winds of 100 miles per hour, the hurricane was still moving to the north-north-west at 13 mph.
With the southern eyewall impacting Bermuda now, conditions will continue to be rough through lunchtime today.
As the system pulls away from Bermuda, it is forecast to curve out to the east, intensifying as it does so. Conditions will improve in Bermuda tonight and tomorrow morning as Paulette heads off to the northeast.
For now, hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 45 miles from the center and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 175 miles . While the storm moves away, tropical-storm-force winds will continue possibly into the early afternoon across the entire island.
