Tropical Storm Gaston

Jump to Comments

Gaston, the season’s newest tropical storm which formed yesterday, is expected to strengthen into a hurricane over the weekend.

 It’s currently in the open Atlantic but is forecast to head west toward the northeast Caribbean.

 Gaston follows on the heels of Fiona which is moving away from the region and will likely veer toward Bermuda over the next several days.

 Meanwhile, a tropical storm watch has been issued for the British territory.

Before Fiona, there was Hurricane Earl which caused between $50 and $150 million in insured losses in the Virgin Islands, St Maarten, St Martin and Puerto Rico when it blew through the northeast Caribbean earlier this week.
