At 11 AM Sunday October 4, The National Hurricane Center has reported Hurricane Joaquin down to Category 2 with winds of 110 mph. This is a large storm, and the outer rain bands are now reaching Bermuda as they are under a hurricane warning. Life threatening storm surge along with flooding rain up to 5 inches is expected. Below is a link to see this live webcam video and others on the island (power supply permitting).
The center of the hurricane is forecast to the west of Bermuda, but the storm trend has been to move to the east. Tropical storm force winds reach 205 miles from the center, while hurricane force winds extend 60 miles away. Either way, the worst part of a hurricane is on the right side as the circulation works with the forward speed to maximize the wind and surge. So this will be strong hit.
Top winds: 110 mph
Moving North at 17 mph
