Hurricane Fiona takes aim at Bermuda as Category 4 storm

A report from ABC
 
Hurricane Fiona, now a monster Category 4 storm with 130 miles per hour winds, is taking aim on Bermuda as hard-hit Puerto Rico looks to recover.
 
A hurricane warning is in effect for Bermuda, where tropical storm conditions are expected to begin this evening.
 
The storm is expected to still be at Category 4 force when it passes close to Bermuda overnight, and its outer bands are already reaching the British territory.
 
It is likely to still be dangerously potent when it reaches Canada's Atlantic provinces, late Friday, as a post-tropical cyclone.
 
Hundreds of people in Puerto Rico remained cut off by road four days after the hurricane ripped into the U.S. territory earlier this week. 
 
98L
 
In the meantime, a Tropical Wave north of Venezuela, known now as 98L, is said to have a 90 per cent chance of becoming the next named storm - Hermine. 
 
The system will travel through the Western Caribbean, and should pass close to Cuba. 
 
The US Gulf Coast will also need to be on alert, as it could come under threat by late next week.
