Hurricane Maria has grown to be a very powerful storm at a Cat 5 with winds of 160 mph and needs to be closely watched. The present track takes her east of Eleuthera but we are still in the cone area of possibility. Hopefully she will continue her trek in a more easterly position as even out a ways at sea we may feel her effects.
Above is the 5 AM Tues morning view from the NHC and if you look at the photos below you will be able to see the progression of her movements. Start at the bottom photo when she was a Tropical Storm and scroll up to see how she has moved and grown. Please keep a close eye on this storm as it is big and powerful and it’s best to be as prepared as possible. You’ll notice a slight movement leaning towards the east this morning with Eleuthera still in the cone.
