“Hurricane Lee barreled over open waters Sunday night just northeast of the Caribbean, unleashing heavy swell on several islands as it regained some strength and expanded in size.

The Category 3 storm is not forecast to make landfall and is expected to stay over open waters through Friday. According to the latest hurricane track from the Canadian Hurricane Centre, the storm appears to be heading toward Nova Scotia.

Late Sunday, it was centred about 310 miles (500 kilometres) north of the northern Leeward Islands. Its maximum sustained winds were clocked at 120 mph (195 kph) and it was moving northwest at 8 mph (13 kph).
