Hurricane Larry path tracker LIVE: Greenland braces for storm as Hurricane Olaf makes landfall in Mexico
10th September 2021

HURRICANE Larry is set to transition into a "massive blizzard" as it nears Newfoundland while Hurricane Olaf made landfall as a Category 2 storm in Mexico with 100mph winds.

"Larry is still a powerful hurricane east of Bermuda," Chief Meteorologist for WPDE ABC-15, Ed Piotrowski, tweeted midday Saturday. "It will transition into a massive blizzard that will dump 3-4 FEET of snow on coastal Greenland over the weekend!"

The U.S. National Hurricane Center (NHC) said Larry is forecasted to move near or over southeastern Newfoundland Friday night or early Saturday morning.

Larry moved away from Bermuda on Thursday night after it downgraded to a Category 1 hurricane with maximum winds of 90 mph.

Predicted to remain out to sea in the Atlantic Ocean, Larry was expected to cause "significant swells" along the East Coast from midweek until the weekend.

"These swells will likely cause life-threatening surf and rip-conditions so beach-goers are urged to follow the guidance of lifeguards and local officials," said National Weather Service meteorologist Lara Pagano.

Meanwhile, Hurricane Olaf made landfall very close to San Jose del Cabo, Baja California Sur, Thursday night with sustained winds around 100 mph, NHC Eastern Pacific reported.

    WHAT TO DO IN A RIP CURRENT

    The National Hurricane Center suggests the following:

    • Swim out of the current, then to shore
    • If you can’t escape, float or tread water
    • If you need help, yell or wave for assistance
