So apparently I’m famous yet again! Hurricane Kyle is making it’s way towards the US and Canada.
Kyle, a Category 1 hurricane, is forecast to make landfall late Sunday or early Monday near the border between Maine and Canada.
As of 11 a.m. Sunday, Kyle’s center was about 140 miles (225 kilometers) east-southwest of Nantucket, Massachusetts, and 355 miles (570 kilometers) southwest of Halifax, Nova Scotia, the National Hurricane Center said.
The storm formed Thursday east of the Bahamas.
Kyle’s maximum sustained winds were near 80 mph (130 kph), with higher gusts. The winds had strengthened since Saturday night, when maximum sustained winds were barely above hurricane strength at about 75 mph, forecasters said.
A Category 1 storm has winds from 74 to 95 mph.
Kyle was moving north Sunday morning at near 24 mph and was expected “to pass east of Cape Cod, Massachusetts, and the coast of Maine later today and tonight,” the forecasters said.
It’s been a long while since the last Hurricane Kyle. Maybe this one will be more memorable, but in a safe way. 😉
