The Storm 'Lorenzo' It has become a category 3 hurricane and may gain strength and intensity over the next few hours, the United States National Hurricane Center.
The hurricane, the fifth of the season in the Atlantic Ocean, is located about 1,600 kilometers west of the southern tip of the island of Cape Verde, with winds of more than 200 kilometers per hour.
At the moment, the alarms have not jumped because most forecasts keep you away from the Islands and the Peninsula, but you have to be cautious and be aware of their movement because hurricanes with these magnitudes are a bit beyond numerical models.
It is expected that 'Lawrence' move northwest and move at a slightly slower speed early Friday, said the agency, based in Miami.
