Officials temporarily suspended aid efforts and closed a couple of small airports in the Bahamas on Saturday as Tropical Storm Humberto threatened to lash the archipelago's northwest region that was already hit by Hurricane Dorian two weeks ago.

It had maximum sustained winds of 65 miles per hour, slightly below hurricane strength, but was expected to gain power through the day.

Thankfully, the Bahamas, which recently suffered the devastating hurricane Dorian, dodged the worst part of Humberto, the National Hurricane Center says.

The disturbance in the Atlantic is forecast to move north-northwest in the coming days and could strengthen into a hurricane by Friday, according to CNN Meteorologist Michael Guy. "On the forecast track, the center of Humberto will continue to move away from the Bahamas and remain well offshore of the east coast of Florida through Wednesday".
