HURRICANE Larry has shifted to the west, with forecasts suggesting the storm could make landfall in eastern Newfoundland early Saturday.
Larry churned on Wednesday closer to Bermuda as it continues to affect the Northern Leeward Islands.
The Canadian Hurricane Centre in Halifax issued a tropical cyclone chart this morning showing the centre of the storm crossing over the Newfoundland’s Avalon Peninsula at 3am on Saturday.
However, Larry’s maximum sustained winds are expected to be 140 kilometres per hour, a Category 1 hurricane.
Predicted to remain out to sea in the Atlantic Ocean, Larry was expected to cause “significant swells” along the East Coast from midweek until the weekend.
“These swells will likely cause life-threatening surf and rip-conditions so beach-goers are urged to follow the guidance of lifeguards and local officials,” said National Weather Service meteorologist Lara Pagano.
