‘Humberto’ strengthens to hurricane status, will continue to swirl off the Atlantic shore

Tropical Storm Humberto officially formed just before 10 PM CDT on Friday, and on Sunday night, it strengthened into a Category 1 Hurricane with maximum sustained winds of 75 mph.

Hurricane Humberto will continue to swirl just offshore from the Atlantic coast of Florida and the Carolinas. Swells from Humberto may cause dangerous rip currents along the Florida to Carolina beaches; a few rain bands may also swipe the East Coast. If travel plans take you to the Atlantic Coast of Florida to the Carolinas, be sure to monitor future weather updates if travel plans take you to the Atlantic coast of Florida, Georgia and the Carolinas.
