What is Hurricane Larry’s projected path?
Larry is a Category 3 hurricane with the potential to turn into a Category 4 storm, according to Accuweather meteorologists.
The storm is expected to be in the Atlantic Ocean for several more days before eventually making its way to Bermuda around the middle of the week, moving closer to North America, Accuweather said.
“At this point, it is most likely that Larry will miss the United States and stay a few hundred miles away from the Northeast coast,” the center stated.

On Monday, September 6, the storm was about 715 miles east of the Northern Leeward Islands, moving northwest at 10 mph with winds at 120 mph, the National Hurricane Center said.
