Must Read

Tropical Storm Alex was set to bring damaging winds and a few inches of rain to Bermuda on Monday, days after the weather system caused flooding across South Florida and killed at least three people in Cuba.

As of Monday morning, a tropical storm warning was in effect for Bermuda, according to the National Hurricane Center. Alex, which became the first named storm of the 2022 Atlantic hurricane season early Sunday, had sustained winds of 65 miles per hour.

Alex was quickly moving east-northeast at 29 m.p.h. and was expected to pass near Bermuda later on Monday and then weaken, becoming an extratropical low by the evening. Up to two inches of rain was expected on the island.

In an update on Monday, the Hurricane Center said that Alex's winds extended up to 205 miles from the storm’s center. By 11 a.m., L.F. Wade International Airport had reported sustained winds of up to 43 m.p.h., the center said.
