Earl, the second hurricane of the 2022 Atlantic Hurricane Season, has been forecasted to become the first major hurricane of the season. A major hurricane is categorized as a hurricane that has winds of 111 mph or greater. The hurricane is not a threat to the United States, as it is moving eastward in the Atlantic toward Bermuda. The good news is that experts expect the hurricane to miss Bermuda to the southeast, only causing some gusty winds and some rain and avoiding the really dangerous and damaging stuff. It is expected to reach its peak strength sometime this afternoon as it veers off to the northeast. Although the hurricane will not directly affect the United States, the US could potentially see some swells which will cause some very dangerous rip currents. There are currently two hurricanes active in the Atlantic, along with Earl there is Danielle. Danielle isn't as strong as Earl, failing to reach the "major" category. This is the first time since 2020 that two hurricanes have been active at one time in the Atlantic.
