Epsilon strengthens to a hurricane, charges toward Bermuda oEi世界播


Tropical storm Epsilon strengthened to a hurricane Tuesday night as it moved on a projected path that could take it close to Bermuda, forecasters said. oEi世界播


Hurricane Epsilon, named from the Greek alphabet because there have been so many storms that the traditional names ran out, became the earliest 26th named storm on record Monday morning. oEi世界播


Tuesday night, the stom had maximum sustained winds of 75 mph, making it a Category 1 on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale, the hurricane center said in an advisory at 11 p.m. oEi世界播

Large swells generated by the storm could affect Bermuda for several days, the hurricane center said in Tuesday night's advisory, which are expected to generate potentially life-threatening surf and rip currents. oEi世界播


In September, the list of traditional names for hurricanes — which come from an international committee of the World Meteorological Organization, a United Nations agency — ran out when Tropical Storm Wilfred formed in the Atlantic. oEi世界播

今年9月,热带风暴威尔弗雷德(Wilfred)在大西洋形成后,飓风的传统名称名单-来自联合国机构世界气象组织(World Metomological Organization)的一个国际委员会-用完了。oEi世界播

That meant that the names then went to the Greek alphabet. oEi世界播


The official Atlantic hurricane season doesn't end until Nov. 30, but tropical cyclones can form even later than that. Tropical storm Zeta in 2005 formed in late December. oEi世界播
