DISCUSSION: As Tropical Storm Karl regains a little bit of strength as it passes just to the east of Bermuda during the overnight hours tonight, there will continue to be a decent threat to parts of Bermuda. In particular, there will be an increased threat for gusty winds which may take down some weaker structures and consequently power lines as well. Therefore, if you or someone you know is currently living in or on vacation in Bermuda, it would be in their best interest to hunker down until this formidable tropical storm has passed well to the northeast of the Bermuda by later tomorrow afternoon. However, in the wake of Tropical Storm Karl passing just to the east, there may some leftover return flow around the southern edge of the storm and consequently some persistent wave action, beach erosion, and gusty conditions at times making for potentially hazardous travel.
