DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK
----------------------
At 500 AM AST (0900 UTC), the center of Hurricane Epsilon was
located near latitude 30.6 North, longitude 60.9 West.  Epsilon
has been wobbling around since last evening, but its longer-term
motion is toward the northwest near 7 mph (11 km/h).  A turn toward
the north-northwest is expected later today, followed by a 
northward motion tonight through Friday night, and an acceleration
toward the northeast on Saturday.  On the forecast track, the center
of Epsilon is forecast to make its closest approach to, but well to
the east of, Bermuda later this evening.

Maximum sustained winds have decreased to near 110 mph (175 km/h)
with higher gusts.  Additional weakening is forecast during the
next few days.

Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 25 miles (35 km) from the
center and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 310 miles
(500 km).

The estimated minimum central pressure is 955 mb (28.20 inches).


HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND
----------------------
WIND:  Tropical storm conditions are expected intermittently on
Bermuda through this evening.

SURF:  Large swells generated by Epsilon will affect Bermuda, the
Bahamas, the Greater Antilles, the Leeward Islands, the east coast
of the United States, and Atlantic Canada during the next few days.
These swells are likely to cause life-threatening surf and rip
current conditions.  Please consult products from your local weather
office.
