"Its eye is now starting to move away from Bermuda. We expect hurricane-force winds to leave our area around mid-morning and then tropical-storm-force winds to leave late this afternoon," Bermuda's Meteorological Service reported.
Paulette has no major changes to the previous forecast. It has maximum sustained winds of over 140 kilometers per hour and it will maintain its course toward the northeast between Monday and Tuesday.
"I ask the people to remain in a safe area until the phenomenon moves away from the Island," Bermuda's Prime Minister David Burt tweeted.
