August 27, 2010

The National Hurricane Center (NHC) has issued advisories on Hurricane Danielle, Tropical Storm Earl and Hurricane Frank.

No watches or warnings of possible landfall have been issued.

Danielle, a Category 4 hurricane, is expected to strengthen and pass Bermuda on Saturday night, then move East. Large waves and dangerous surf conditions will affect Bermuda over the next few days. Swells from Danielle will begin to arrive on the East Coast of the U.S. on Saturday and are expected to cause dangerous rip currents throughout the weekend.

Meanwhile, Tropical Storm Earl at 11 am. EST was near the northern Leeward Islands. It is expected to follow a path similar to Danielle’s. Earl could become a hurricane by Sunday.

Also, Hurricane Frank is being monitored on the southern tip of Baja California but is expected to weaken to a tropical storm over the next few days.
