Humberto is the ninth Atlantic storm of this season and the third, which increased to the level of a hurricane.
Earlier in September, the hurricane Dorian devastated the islands of Grand Bahama and Abaco, where estimated 70,000 people have been left homeless in the aftermath. The disaster has also left dozens of people dead.
