LOS ANGELES (LALATE) – The latest Hurricane Leslie 2012 projected path tracking is prompts concerns for Bermuda Friday. Hurricane Leslie 2012 is currently at Category One status. But the National Hurricane Center (NHC) in their latest news update tonight warned that Leslie could become a Category Two hurricane by Friday as she approaches Bermuda.
Hurricane Leslie 2012 tracking does will not bare any resemblance to that of Isaac, officials confirmed to news tonight. But Hurricane Leslie 2012 is prompting comparison by news analysts to a far more deadly storm: Hurricane Igor 2010. Officials are worried that, when Leslie reaches Newfoundland, that she could increase to Hurricane Igor status. Moreover, current tracking models suggest that Leslie could follow the path of Igor.
The Fire and Emergency Services of Newfoundland tonight confirms that they are following Leslie. “Officials with Environment Canada and the Canadian Hurricane Centre indicate there is significant uncertainty around this system, but we remain on the alert” they said in a news statement today. Igor in 2010 left a path of destruction and three deaths.
But for now, the concern is first Bermuda. The NHC tells news that Leslie is “a category one hurricane” showing “gradual strengthening during the next forty-eight hours”. Moreover “Leslie could become a Category 2 hurricane by Friday”, officials tell news.
Leslie is delivering strong winds. While she is moving only two miles per hour currently, her winds are upwards of twenty-five miles per hour. Moreover, her path remains problematic. Officials tell news that Leslie has no consistency in her path, prompting doubts about various projected tracking models. But she is for the meantime moving northward and northwestward.
No hurricane watch or warning remains in place for Leslie. But strong surf and rip conditions could generate themselves across the lower Atlantic states as she passes north this week. For the latest update on Leslie and other hurricanes, click HERE.
