[Jyo_hurricane] Hurricane Dean: August 16, Update A

Just a short note for now:

Dean (the storm, not the person I know by that name :)) is now a
Hurricane (although Dean the person could be too...). He's a weak cat 1
with sustained winds of 80 mph (~70 kt) (cat 1: 74-95 mph; 64-82 kt) and
is moving at a fairly fast rate of 24 mph in a west-northwest direction.
He is at about 13.5N and 53.3W. Those on the islands already have
hurricane watches and warnings in place. Stay safe.

I will send more out on this later.


These remarks are just what I think/see regarding tropical storms - not
the opinion of any organization I represent. If you are making an
evacuation decision, please heed your local emergency management and the
National Hurricane Center's official forecast and the National Weather
Service announcements. This is not an official forecast.
