MIAMI (BNO NEWS) — The remnants of tropical storm Colin regenerated on Thursday afternoon and became tropical storm again, meteorologists said. Immediately, the government of Bermuda issued a tropical storm warning for the islands.

Tropical storm Colin remnants regenerate just before 05:00 p.m. EDT (2100 GMT) and its center was located about 835 kilometers (520 miles) south of Bermuda.

U.S. National Hurricane Center said tropical Colin is moving toward the northwest at a speed of approximately 32 kilometers (20 miles) per hour. “A gradual turn toward the north and a decrease in forward speed are expected during the next 48 hours,” said the Miami-based center.

The center said reports from an Air Force Reserve Hurricane Hunter plane indicate that maximum sustained winds are near 75 km/hr (45 mph). “Little change in strength is expected tonight and Friday, with slow strengthening forecast Friday night and Saturday.”

According to forecasters, tropical storm-force winds are expected to spread over Bermuda within the next 36 hours.
