Hurricane Paulette made landfall early Monday morning in Bermuda. While Paulette is currently moving away from Bermuda, hurricane conditions are still impacting the island.

Paulette is also expected to continue to strengthen as it tracks into the open Atlantic.

Tropical Depression Rene, which had once been a tropical storm this past weekend, will continue to weaken as it tracks through the central Atlantic Ocean.

Hurricane Sally has gone through a remarkable rapid intensification on Monday.

It was upgraded to a Category 2 hurricane by the NHC.

An extremely dangerous and life-threatening storm surge is expected for areas from Port Fourchon, Louisiana, to the Okaloosa/Walton County Line in the Florida Panhandle.

Dangerous hurricane Sally is likely to bring destructive and life-threatening coastal flooding, storm surge, and hurricane-force winds into the Gulf Coast of Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, and southwest Florida over the next day.

The expected extreme amount of rainfall (locally 750-1000 mm possible) combined with major storm surge could be potentially catastrophic for these areas.
