After causing major destruction in Puerto Rico, and then hitting Dominican Republic and Turks and Caicos, Hurricane Fiona was scheduled to pass close to Bermuda late Thursday as a Category 4 storm.

Bermudan authorities were opening shelters and announced schools and offices would be closed Friday.  As of late Thursday night, the US National Hurricane Centre said Fiona had maximum sustained winds of 130mph.

It was centred about 195 miles southwest of Bermuda, heading northeast at 21 mph.  Hurricane-force winds extended outward up to 115 miles from the centre and tropical-storm-force winds extended outward up to 275 miles.
