By early Thursday, the center had discontinued all warnings for Bermuda as Humberto churned about 195 miles north northeast of Bermuda.
The island was still feeling the storm’s tropical storm-force winds Thursday morning, which extended 220 miles from the center.
Bermuda rarely sees storms as big and powerful as Humberto. Only 21 hurricanes have passed within 100 miles of the Atlantic Ocean paradise over the past century, with Hurricane Gonzalo in 2014 being the last to make landfall there.
As the spinner continues over the ocean, it’s expected to impact parts of the UK by Tuesday of next week, CNN meteorologist Michael Guy said.
Humberto is one of three storms
Meantime, Tropical Storm Jerry, brewing in the Atlantic, is expected to become a hurricane by the time it reaches the northern Leeward Islands on Friday, the hurricane center said.
“Although the core of Jerry is currently expected to pass north of the islands, tropical-storm-force winds and locally heavy rainfall are possible, and tropical storm watches have been issued for a portion of this area,” it said.
