Hurricane Bill Track: August 18, 2009
Hurricane Bill, the first Atlantic hurricane of the season, is on track to Bermuda. Hurricane Bill is gaining strength out in the Atlantic and is expected to become a Category 3 hurricane. It is expected Bill will bypass the East Coast of the U.S. and make a landfall in Canadian Maritimes -- the provinces of Nova Scotia or Newfoundland.
“Bill is still a very remote threat to the U.S. mainland at this time,” said Dan Leonard, a meteorologist with WSI Corp. in Andover, Massachusetts. “The primary threat is first to Bermuda.”
"Bill is expected to become a major hurricane tonight or Wednesday," the NHC said
