Tropical Storm Humberto will be strengthening on a hurricane Sunday



Humberto is moving away from the Bahamas and, according to the National Hurricane Center, is currently located about 135 miles north of Great Abaco Island and 175 miles east of Cape Canaveral, Florida, according to the NHC. However, according to CNN meteorologist Derek Van Dam, it will slowly intensify and is expected to become a hurricane on Sunday.

It is expected to migrate from Florida to the north and then from the US mainland, the NHC said.

There was some concern as to what would bring Humberto to the Bahamas, where hundreds are still missing after Hurricane Dorian met Category 5 in the Abaco Islands and Grand Bahama. The death toll is currently around 50, but search and rescue forces are still ransacking destroyed neighborhoods.
  3,900 evacuees from the Bahamas have come to South Florida.

"Even if you only speak 2 to 4 inches (of rain), you have to remember many of these houses, they have no roofs, many of the buildings are already structurally affected, leaving even a wind of 80 or 90 km / h can do more damage, "said CNN meteorologist Allison Chinchar.

The islands got some rain, Van Dam said, but Humberto's full effect was not achieved.

"They were spared the heaviest rainfall and strongest winds centered north and east of the storm," said Van Dam, adding that the storm surge in the Bahamas was negligible.

Dorian Evacuees

Many in the Bahamas are still out of the house after the devastating Hurricane Dorian, which was hit by the islands about two weeks ago.

About 3,900 evacuees were processed So far by air and sea through South Florida, officials said, with few were turned away.

The figure includes US citizens, rightful residents, the Bahamas, and people from other countries who evacuated the islands after the storm.

Palm Beach County, Florida, has begun registering expelled students who have fled Dorian's harm. School-worn backpacks will be provided to students from the Palm Beach County Education Foundation, which plans to open their school supplies business to allow evacuated families to shop for free, said district spokeswoman Julie Houston, Christina Maxouris and Jason Hanna contributed to this report.
