The tropical storm Joaquin is upgraded to hurricane level 3 and could potentially be very damaging at the end of the week, warns the US National Hurricane Center (NHC).
The hurricane has now wind gusts of up to 185 km/h and is located 270 kilometers east of the central Bahamas, according to NHC.
- The Joaquin's hurricane center is expected to approach parts of the central Bahamas on Thursday or Friday, and it may be near the northwestern Bahamas Thursday night or Friday, said NHC.
It is expected that Joaquin will bring heavy rain to the Bahamas and potentially deadly floods.
Although the hurricane will not hit the US, it is expected that it could contribute to severe flooding from South Carolina and as far north as Massachusetts, reports the weather service AccuWeather.com.
Joaquin is the third hurricane in a row during this year's hurricane season in the Atlantic.
