A hurricane warning is in effect for Bermuda as a strengthening Hurricane Igor takes aim.
Igor’s top winds are near 110 mph, with further strengthening possible during the day.
It’s on track to reach Bermuda on tomorrow night.
Meanwhile, authorities in central Mexico are on alert today for possible mudslides and flooding as the remnants of Hurricane Karl push inland.
Two people were killed in a landslide as the storm swept onto the Gulf coast.
Karl, which caused widespread property damage as a hurricane in the port city of Veracruz, weakened to a tropical depression last night and is dissipating over the mountains. Forecasters at the U.S. National Hurricane Center in Miami say it’s still expected to produce up to another 3 inches of rain in some areas.
