Tropical storm Epsilon has rapidly intensified over the past 24 hours, and was upgraded to hurricane status Tuesday night as it took aim at Bermuda.

Forecasters noted that, on Tuesday night, the storm had reached maximum sustained winds of 75 mph.

The storm could strengthen over the next two days and should approach Bermuda by late Thursday, according to forecasts. According to the Orlando Sentinel, the weather event could soon become a Category 2 storm.

A tropical storm watch has been put into effect for Bermuda by Wednesday, as the storm was located roughly 400 miles east-southeast of the island. The storm was moving northwest at a rate of 14 mph, according to The National Hurricane Center, with winds gusting at 90 mph.

At last report, the hurricane's winds extended outward for up to 435 miles.

Sizable swells created by the storm could impact Bermuda for days, according to Tuesday night’s advisory. The swells could create potentially life-threatening rip currents, as well.

The official Atlantic hurricane season runs through November, though tropical cyclones can form even later than that.
