After hitting the Caribbean Islands as a Category 1 this past Saturday, Hurricane Tammy headed back out into sea and is starting to strengthen again. The path of the storm is taking it straight towards Bermuda.
Life Cycle of Hurricane Tammy
From Friday to Monday, Hurricane Tammy hit the Caribbean Islands with winds of 85 mph, storm surge, and heavy rainfall. Barbados, St. Lucia, the British and U.S. Virgin Islands saw between 2 to 4 inches of rain, while Guadeloupe, Antigua, and Barbuda saw between 4-8 inches. Some residents in Guadeloupe even reported over 9 inches over the weekend.
On Saturday, conditions began to deteriorate, but the Islands were still feeling the impacts. Winds of 90 mph were reported in Barbuda as Tammy headed to the northeast of Leeward Islands.
The storm eventually made its way northwest away from the Caribbean Islands.
