Hurricane Ophelia Moving At Snail's Pace To Northeast

As we move into the start of the new week, Ophelia is forecaat to undergo extratropical transition, becoming a post-tropical storm. "There is still a chance of one more major (Category 3) hurricane".

The 10th hurricane of the 2017 Hurricane Season: Ophelia, continues to swirl in the northeastern Atlantic.

Perhaps the most impressive statistic is that if Ophelia strengthens to a hurricane, which it is forecast to do, it will be the tenth consecutive hurricane.

"There is a lot of uncertainty as to the exact evolution and movement of this weather system during the coming four days, but storm-force winds, outbreaks of heavy rain, and very high seas are threatened".

It will coincide with the 30th anniversary of the Great Storm of 1987, which hit southern England overnight on October 15. The intensity is somewhat uncertain, however, as there have been no aircraft investigations of the hurricane since it is well away from land over the open Atlantic, forcing forecasters to rely on remote sensing techniques to estimate wind strength.

Paddock reportedly killed himself as police moved in on the 32nd-floor hotel room he was using to shoot down on the crowd. It claimed an attack on a Philippine casino on June 2, 2017, where a gunman had killed 36 people.

The remnants of Ophelia are predicted to strike the British Isles on Sunday and although it will no longer be a hurricane, experts have warned it could still pack a punch.

Forecasters predict that Ireland, Northern Ireland and western portions of Britain will likely bear the brunt of Ophelia.

The Met Office has also said there is a "slight chance" of damage to buildings, like tiles falling from roofs.

Mr Burkhill said: "It's definitely something that we are keeping an eye on, for the possibility of some disruptive weather early next week".
