    Officials in Bermuda say schools, public transportation and government offices will close early ahead of the likely arrival of Hurricane Humberto as a Category 2 storm Wednesday evening.



    The National Hurricane Center said Tuesday that Tropical Storm Imelda has made landfall near Freeport, Texas.

    Forecasters expect heavy rainfall and potential flash flooding as the storm moves inland.

    Channel 9 meteorologist Tony Sadiku flew with “hurricane hunters” into the eye of Hurricane Dorian and traveled to the Bahamas to see the devastation.
