All coastal watches and warnings have been dropped as Tropical Storm Gert continues to weaken.
Gert had strengthened on Sunday as it approached Bermuda forcing residents in the area to install storm shutters and haul boats onto beaches.
Wind gusts have since weakened and officials at the U.S. National Hurricane Center say Gert is likely to lose its tropical characteristics by Wednesday.
An initial forecast track for Gert showed it grazing eastern Newfoundland. However, the track was revised Sunday evening and the Canadian Hurricane Centre of Environment Canada says no impacts are expected over land. Rain and southeast winds are likely over the island Tuesday from an unrelated system.
Memories of Hurricane Igor are still fresh in many people's minds. It's been less than a year since Igor blasted the island, killing one person and leaving a trail of destruction.
Gert is the seventh named storm of the Atlantic hurricane season. The sixth storm, Franklin, formed far out at sea and quickly dissipated without affecting land.
