Hurricane Ophelia is hurtling toward Britain as the storm moves through the Atlantic Ocean and is set to smash through the United Kingdom this weekend.
According to JLT Re's Hurricane Activity report, as of 8am Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) today (13 October) Ophelia had strengthened to a Cat 2 Hurricane, with peak wind speeds of 104 miles per hour.
The hurricane is expected to weaken somewhat Friday night but remain a hurricane for the next couple of days.
The storms will not be a hurricane when it reaches us and Ireland is expected to bear the brunt.
