Hurricane Nicole is now a category four storm and is expected to make landfall Thursday.

The U.S. will not be impacted.

The core of Hurricane Nicole is expected to pass near or over the Bermuda island today.

Hurricanes reaching category four and higher are considered major because of their potential to cause significant damage.

Nicole is expected to produce four to eight inches of rain over Bermuda.

The storm will then move out to sea.
