The Bahamas, drying out from Hurricane Dorian, now faces a tropical depression, which is expected to grow stronger overnight.
Star chef Jose Andrés, who has been feeding hurricane victims, said he's stocked up on food in anticipation.
.As the island nation continues to dig out from that calamity, it must now prepare for what could be another.Earlier Friday, Humberto had been a weaker tropical depression, but its sustained winds later strengthened beyond 39 mph, making it a tropical storm.
The Bahamian Department of Meteorology said in a statement that a military flight tracked the weather system Friday and placed it about 190 miles east-southeast of Marsh Harbour, Bahamas, which is part of the country's northern Abaco Islands.Sept. 13, 2019
00:00"The system has been meandering during the past few hours," the department said,"but is expected to resume a slow motion toward the northwest and north-northwest later today. The system is anticipated to move across the northwest Bahamas tonight."
Grand Bahama, the Abaco Islands and the Berry Islands were under a tropical storm warning tonight, according to the department. About 2-4 inches of rain could be expected with some isolated showers pushing 6 inches, it said.The system appears to be moving east of Florida, out to the Atlantic, but forecasters are still warning people along the East Coast of the United States to pay attention to forecasts and warnings, said Dennis Feltgen, spokesman for the National Hurricane Center.
"The models trend it more to the east, which is good," Feltgen said."At this point we’re not calling for landfall on the U.S. coast."The center expects the storm to develop into a full-on hurricane, perhaps in the next five days, he said. Bermuda could be in play, but it's too soon to tell, Feltgen said. A hurricane has maximum sustained surface winds of 74 mph or greater.Read more: MSNBC »
