Hurricane Florence expected to reintensify in Atlantic on Friday: NHC

(Reuters) - Florence is clinging to hurricane status in the Atlantic and is expected to reintensify on Friday, the U.S. National Hurricane Center (NHC) said on Thursday.

The category 1 hurricane is about 1,050 miles (1,685 km) east-southeast of Bermuda with maximum sustained winds of 80 miles per hour (130 km/h), the NHC added.

“Swells generated by Florence will begin to affect Bermuda on Friday and will reach portions of the U.S. East Coast over the weekend,” the Miami-based weather forecaster said.
