HAVANA TIMES, Oct. 29 — Tropical Storm Shary formed in the South Atlantic south of Bermuda on Thursday night, the 18th such weather system during the current season, reported Cuba’s Meteorological Institute (INSMET).
The projected path of the storm takes it far to the north and then northeast of Cuba.
The center of TS Shary was located at 11:00 p.m. EST to be 565 kilometers (350 miles) south of Bermuda and moving fast in a northeast direction at 37 kph (23 mph).
The storm currently packs 65 kph (40 mph) winds, notes INSMET.
The Cuban forecasters predict that Shary will gain in strength before passing near the Bermuda Islands on Friday. It is then expected to continue on northeast in the open Atlantic.
The National Hurricane Center in Miami is also tracking Tropical Storm Shary. See the NHC projection cone.
