Hurricane Bertha is now approx. 215 miles southeast of Bermuda. Bertha remains a category one with sustained winds of 75 mph, and has been stationary for most of the day. While forecasters believe Bertha will begin a Northward drift, little if any strengthening is expected.
Bermuda has been experiencing large swells and high surf from the storm since yesterday and these conditions are expected to continue for at least the next couple of days. The outer bands are expected to produce 1 to 2 inches of rain in Bermuda over the next couple of days as well.
