Tropical Storm Passes Closest Approach

November 11, 2011

At 11am today [Nov.11] the Bermuda Weather Service said Tropical Storm Sean’s closest point of approach to the Island has passed.

“Tropical storm Sean has now passed its closest point of approach and is moving away to the northeast. Gales will continue for a time until Sean moves further away this afternoon.”

“High pressure will then build in quickly from the west bringing fair weather and easing winds through the weekend,” said the BWS.

Last night Government advised that a Storm Warning has been issued for the island, and warned that sustained winds will reach 35 to 45 knots, with gusts as high as 55 knots over the marine area overnight.

American Airlines flights scheduled for today left last night – with a handful of passengers walking over the Causeway to bypass temporary traffic restrictions due to an accident.

There are no known flight cancellations for today as of yet – although at this time flights including the JetBlue JFK and Delta Boston are showing as delayed.

As of 11.30am this morning, a Tropical Storm Warning remains in effect.
