A hurricane warning is in effect for Bermuda as Hurricane Joaquin moves on a path that will take it very near the archipelago Sunday into early Monday. The current forecast path brings the center of Hurricane Joaquin just west of Bermuda Sunday. However, hurricanes are not simply a point on the map, but have impacts well away from the center.
Tropical storm-force winds extend out just over 200 miles from the center and hurricane-force winds extend 70 miles out. This means that tropical storm-force conditions will undoubtedly lash Bermuda by late Sunday morning and the possibility exists for hurricane-force winds to also impact the island in the afternoon and early evening.
Interests in Bermuda should now be prepared for hurricane conditions (winds 74 mph or greater) during the second half of the day on Sunday, along with significant coastal flooding from storm surge and large, battering waves. Rainfall amounts of 3 to 5 inches are also expected.
Joaquin is forecast to be a Category 2 hurricane as it makes its closest approach to Bermuda.

The Chilean cities of La Ligua, Salamanca, and Illapel were the closest to the epicenter, with the latter being some 29 miles (46 kilometers) away.

There have been no immediate reports of damage or injuries, and the quake did not generate the necessary conditions for creating a tsunami, Reuters reported, citing emergency services.
The quake is the latest tremor in a series of aftershocks that followed a massive earthquake in the same area last week. An 8.3 quake hit Chile at that time, which generated a destructive tsunami and killed at least 13 people...
