Portugal's National Protection Agency said over 300,000 people suffered power outages overnight after power lines were damaged across the country.

Many across Hampton Roads were impacted by now post-tropical storm Michael, which was a tropical storm when it crossed over Hampton Roads and northeastern North Carolina on Thursday.

He also gave the injury toll but added that none were life-threatening.

Hundreds of people remained in an arts centre in Figueira da Foz after a concert because of the high winds.

The exact trajectory of the hurricane, however, remains uncertain due to the presence of another storm approaching the region from the north, Portugal's meteorological institute said. "People were very anxious".

The National Hurricane Center in Miami said Friday night that the Category 1 storm was about 690 miles (1,125 kilometers) southwest of Lisbon, Portugal.

NASA-NOAA's Suomi NPP satellite passed over the Eastern Atlantic Ocean and captured a visible image of Hurricane Leslie as it continues to travel toward southern Spain and Portugal. Risky winds with gusts reaching 75mph, perhaps as high as 90mph with exposure, unsafe surf and heavy rainfall (locally over 100mm) will affect Portugal and western Spain tonight and into Sunday before the system weakens as it moves inland.

Neighbouring Spain was also preparing itself for what was dubbed a "zombie" hurricane, as it first formed on Sep 23 and has been meandering through the waters of the Atlantic Ocean for weeks.

It was hovering over the Atlantic for so long because it didn't encounter a strong enough weather system to force it towards land, according to Accuweather.

The last tropical system to follow in Leslie's path was Vince in 2005.
