Thousands in Bahamas struggle to find work after Dorian

FIRST ALERT Forecast track issued for developing system near the Bahamas

On Saturday, Humberto was slowly moving northwest and gaining strength, but expected to turn "sharply" northeast Sunday night and move away from the USA, the National Hurricane Center's 5 a.m. Saturday forecast said.

A system has to have a closed, defined center of circulation and winds of at least 39 miles per hour to become a tropical storm and get a name.

Forecasters say Humberto is likely to become a hurricane by Sunday night.

But the NHC and NOAA tracking maps suggest the barrelling vortex will track towards Florida, hitting with high winds should it reach "tropical storm" status.

A Tropical Storm Warning has just been issued for the Bahamas, where the storm could hit as soon as overnight Thursday night, Sept. 12 into Friday, Sept. 13.

A tropical storm warning is in effect for areas of the Central and northern Bahamas, including Eleuthera, the Abacos, Grand Bahama and New Providence, which includes the popular tourist port of Nassau.

Forecasters also issued a tropical storm watch for parts of Florida's east coast from Jupiter Inlet up to the Volusia-Brevard County line.

He said the Bahamas would hold a national day of prayer, and named hurricane response coordinators for the two most-affected islands. Its swells could still affect the coasts of Florida, Georgia, South Carolina and North Carolina in the coming days.

Winds of up to 100 km/h were expected and heavy rainfall could bring some flooding to the already saturated islands, said Trevor Basden, the Department of Meteorology's director. The disturbance is forecast to become tropical depression or a tropical storm during the next day or so.

The storm is expected to turn its attention to the US Southeast coast.

Prime minister Hubert Minnis said in a televised address on Wednesday that the government was being transparent and would "provide timely information on the loss of life as it is available". The coastal areas from central Florida into SC could receive 2 to 4 inches of rain through Sunday, the hurricane center says. Dorian's 180 miles per hour sustained winds caused an estimated $7 billion of damage. The islands are only now just beginning to tackle a daunting cleanup.

"As we saw previous year with Hurricane Michael, these things are sometimes quick developing", he said.
