Tuesday, September 28, 2021 1:26 PM – Hurricane Sam became the most severe tropical storm of the year, with winds of up to 250 km / h. Its course is northerly and it affects the country coast.

In short:

  • Sam remains the strongest hurricane of the season;
  • Stable winds reached 250 km per hour;

Violent hurricane

Sam is getting closer to Category 5. At storm intensity, winds of up to 250 km per hour were recorded overnight from Monday to Tuesday. Currently, it is in category 4, although it has lost its intensity. Sam is less than 1000 kilometers from the lower Antilles.

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.

Dangerous coast

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.
