Rain and strong winds continued to lash the island. The Category 3 storm was packing sustained winds of 120 mph. The storm's strong winds extended 80 miles outward from its center as it churned about 75 miles north of Bermuda.
Southern coastal parts of the island are under flood threat through Thursday from the storm surge and dangerous breaking waves,

Humberto could dump up to 6 inches of rain by Thursday in some spots, forecasters said.
Large swells will also continue to increase into tomorrow.
