Hurricane Larry strengthened to a Category Three storm and is forecast to remain a major hurricane over the coming days in the Atlantic, Local 10 reported Saturday.
The storm is moving north, away from the United States, but could pose a threat to Bermuda next week.
“At 11 a.m. Saturday, Larry packed maximum sustained winds of 125 mph. It was 1,055 miles east of the Leeward Islands and 1,600 miles southeast of Bermuda, heading west-northwest at 15 mph. The National Hurricane Center predicts that Larry will further intensify into a Category 4 storm later this weekend,” the outlet said.
