Waves Crash Against Bermuda Coast as Hurricane Sam Whips up Currents

Hurricane Sam weakened off the coast of Bermuda and drifted well to the east of the country as a tropical storm warning was in place in the early hours of October 2, the National Hurricane Center (NHC) said.

According to the NHC, while Hurricane Sam weakened in intensity on Saturday morning, it maintained maximum sustained winds of 140 mph.

The center warned of storm swells with the potential to cause “life-threatening surf and rip current conditions.”
