Hurricane Nicole forms off Bermuda in the Atlantic and could be absorbed by Matthew as they cross paths

Nicole strengthens into hurricane south of Bermuda

Tropical Storm Nicole has now intensified into a hurricane some 345 miles of the coast of Bermuda. With maximum sustained winds of 80mph, it is a Category 1 hurricane. Matthew by comparison was upgraded earlier on Thursday to a 'catastrophic' Category 4. Matthew is expected to eventually head back into the Atlantic after making its way up past Florida, Georgia and South Carolina. As a result, it could get in Nicole's path, which would see both storms interacting with one another

US East Coast keeps close watch over Hurricane Matthew

People along the East Coast entered better-safe-than-sorry mode Tuesday, flocking to hardware stores, grocery aisles and gas stations as Hurricane Matthew marched toward Florida, threatening to become the first hurricane to hit the state's Atlantic coast in over a decade. Matthew, a Category 4 storm packing winds of 145 mph, pummeled parts of Haiti and the Dominican Republic on Tuesday. The eye of Hurricane Matthew has now moved off the northeastern coast of Cuba (center inset) as the storm is expected to head over to the Bahamas before nearing the Florida coast by Thursday. Florida residents emptied store shelves buying food supplies and other items crucial to survive the storm (top). A United Nations official said Hurricane Matthew has caused the biggest humanitarian crisis in Haiti since the devastating earthquake of 2010.
