Bermuda battens down for Cat 3 storm

MIAMI (AP) — Bermuda’s government called up troops and urged people on the British Atlantic island to make final preparations for an expected close brush today with Hurricane Humberto, a powerful Category 3 storm. Authorities ordered early closings of schools, transportation and government offices.

Gov. John Rankin called up 120 members of the Royal Bermuda Regiment to prepare for possible storm recovery efforts and National Security Minister Wayne Caines said schools, government offices and ferries on the island would close at noon and bus service would halt at 4 p.m.

The U.S. National Hurricane Center said Humberto’s maximum sustained winds strengthened to 120 mph and it would probably remain a Category 3 hurricane through Thursday, though there could be some fluctuations in its winds. The storm was centered about 195 miles  west of Bermuda early Wednesday, moving east-northeast at 16 mph.

In Texas, the remnants of Tropical Storm Imelda threatened to drench parts of Southwest Texas and southwestern Louisiana with up to 18 inches of rain over the next few days.

Tropical Storm Jerry also formed this morning, forecast to become a hurricane as it nears the outermost Caribbean islands Thursday night or Friday.

Meanwhile, Tropical Storm Lorena was moving off Mexico’s Pacific Coast, and forecasters now expect it to become a hurricane Fridayt.
