<!-- wp:oxygen-vsb/ovsb-section-w-text {"headline-4-253470_string":"STORM SUMMARY","text_block-3-253470_string":" At 1100 AM EDT (1500 UTC), the center of Hurricane Humberto was located by an Air Force Reserve Hurricane Hunter aircraft near latitude 30.7 North, longitude 73.5 West. Humberto is moving toward the east-northeast near 8 mph (13 km/h), and this general motion with a gradual increase in forward speed is expected through early Thursday. On the forecast track, the center of Humberto is expected to pass just to the north of Bermuda Wednesday night.

Data from the Hurricane Hunter aircraft indicate that maximum sustained winds remain near 100 mph (155 km/h) with higher gusts. However, some strengthening is forecast during the next 36 hours, and Humberto could become a major hurricane late tonight or Wednesday morning.

Humberto is a large hurricane. Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 60 miles (95 km) from the center and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 175 miles (280 km).

The minimum central pressure recently measured by the reconnaissance aircraft was 961 mb (28.38 inches).
