We're reimagining the Surfline experience with you in mind.

Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 25 miles from the center and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 70 miles. After all, this is just an uncommon occurrence, not completely unheard of.

Ophelia is centered about 725 miles (1,165 kilometers) southwest of the Azores and is moving northeast near 3 mph (6 kph). Three Category 4 hurricanes - Harvey, Irma and Maria - made landfall in USA territories, and that has not ever happened on record!


The consecutive hurricane streak began quietly on August 9 when Tropical Storm Franklin strengthened into the season's first hurricane while over the Bay of Campeche in the Gulf of Mexico. Be sure to check the National Hurricane Center for the latest updates. Over the weekend it accelerates off to the north-northeast, continuing on this track through early next week.

Hurricane Ophelia is moving northeastwards far out over the Atlantic Ocean.

Ophelia's arrival will coincide with the 30th anniversary of the Great Storm of 1987, which hit southern England overnight on October 15. It actually has happened four times (in 1878, 1886, 1893 and 2017), but named storms were much more likely to be hurricanes back in the 1800s because a lack of satellites and other technology meant only the strongest storms and those making landfall would be noticed. So depending on when the transition occurs, these areas could be impacted by a hurricane or a post-tropical storm, though the hurricane or tropical strom-force winds impacting the region won't care about the official storm designation.
