    Epsilon is not forecasted to make landfall in the United States, but East Coast of the United States and parts of Canada’s Atlantic coast will be affected by the storm in form of large swells with rip-current conditions and life-threatening surf.

    Update: 22nd of October, 2:00 p.m. UTC

    Currently located near latitude 30.6 North, longitude 61.3 West, Hurricane Epsilon is moving toward the west but the longer-term motion is toward the northwest near 7 mph (6 knots). A turn toward the north-northwest is expected later today, followed by a northward motion tonight through Friday night. It is forecasted that Epsilon will then accelerate toward the northeast on Saturday. The center of the system is expected to make its closest approach to, but well to the east of, Bermuda later this evening.

    Maximum sustained winds have decreased to 100 mph (87 knots) with higher gusts. Epsilon is expected to be slowly weakening during the next few days.

    Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 25 miles (35 km) from the center.

    It is expected that tropical storm conditions are expected intermittently on Bermuda through this evening during Epsilon's closest approach east of the island.

    Dangerous and potentially life-threatening surf and rip currents are expected along the coasts of Bermuda, the Bahamas, the Greater Antilles, the Leeward Islands, the east coast of the United States, and Atlantic Canada during the next couple of days.

    Update: 21st of October, 10:30 a.m. UTC

    Epsilon has developed into a Hurricane. Currently located near 28.9N 58.3W, the system is moving toward the west-northwest near 14 mph (12 knots). This general motion is expected through today with a turn toward the northwest tonight, followed by a turn toward the north by Thursday night. The center of Epsilon is forecasted to make its closest approach to Bermuda Thursday afternoon or evening local time.

    Maximum sustained winds are near 85 mph (74 knots) with higher gusts. Additional strengthening is possible today.

    Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 25 miles (35 km) from the center.

    Tropical storm conditions are possible on Bermuda on Thursday, when Epsilon makes the closest approach east of the island as a hurricane.

    Dangerous surf and rip currents are likely to occur along the coast of Bermuda, the Bahamas, the Greater Antilles, and the Leeward Islands. These conditions are expected to spread to portions of the east coast of the United States and Atlantic Canada during the next couple of days.

    Spectacular views taken by the Hurricane Hunters inside Epsilon on Thursday 22 Oct.

    P.S. This year's hurricane season is so active that
    the World Meteorological Organization (WMO)
    have exhausted the regular list of names
    and are working through the Greek alphabet.
