Trajectory to see
According to current estimates by the American NHC, Sam will head north and get closer to Bermuda. At present, it is not expected to affect the archipelago, but it will remain a major storm even as it ends in the cold waters of the Atlantic.
Over the next few days Sam will be closely watching the movement. The storm could move westward along the east coast of Canada and hit the ground. On Sunday or Monday, Newfoundland may see some action. It is still too early to determine for sure the strength of the winds and the intensity of the precipitation.
The year 2021 is marked by a fertile tropical season. In fact, the number of hurricanes is too large to say that the Atlantic Ocean provides tremendous power to promote the emergence of violent hurricanes.
