(FOX NEWS) – An “extremely large” Hurricane Lorenzo is threatening to bring waves of up to 70 feet as it bears down on parts of the Azores Islands this week as officials announced Tuesday that additional bodies have been recovered from the vessel the storm sunk last week.
The National Hurricane Center in Miami said as of 8 p.m. ET that Lorenzo is still a Category 2 storm with maximum sustained winds of 100 mph as it moves northeast at 32 mph about 205 miles southwest of Flores in the western Azores.
The storm is forecast to bring hurricane and tropical-storm-force winds to the Portuguese islands beginning Tuesday night, with conditions continuing into Wednesday.
“On the forecast track, the center of Lorenzo is expected to pass near the western Azores early Wednesday,” the NHC said, adding “Only slow weakening is expected during the next 48 hours.”
