Hurricane Maria Spaghetti Models Move Farther From Florida

Hurricane Maria Spaghetti Models Move Farther From Florida

But beyond shredded foliage, downed trees and physical damages, what Skerrit said he feared most were injuries to Dominicans and possible deaths from likely landslides triggered by persistent rains.

The islands that could be struck by the hurricane are now recovering from hurricane Irma, which was one of the most powerful storms in history.

According to reports, the winds reached 160 miles per hour and are believed to be headed towards St. Croix and Puerto Rico next.

After being rescued, Skerrit appealed for "help of all kinds" but noted specifically that authorities would need helicopters to survey the damage.

All ports and airports have been closed in the area and any residents near the coast have been ordered to go to authorized shelters.

In a Facebook post, he added: "So far we have lost all what money can buy and replace". The storm might make landfall on the eastern side of Puerto Rico and could bring major damage to the USA territory late Wednesday morning and into the afternoon - two weeks to the day since Hurricane Irma tore through Puerto Rico, killing at least three.

At one time, Jose was a powerful category 4 border line category 5 storm with maximum sustained winds at 155 miles per hour as reported by the National Hurricane Center on September 9 as it was approaching the northern Leeward Islands.

Security Worries Prompt Federal Halt On Kaspersky Software
It said it was not a telecoms provider and so not subject to the Russian laws Duke referred to on cooperation with the government. The Department of Homeland security ordered government agencies to stop using any software products made by Kaspersky Lab .

The hurricane regained strength and was upgraded to Category 4 after passing through Dominica, according to a 8:00 a.m. update from the National Hurricane Center.

On the forecast track, the eye of Maria will move over the northeastern Caribbean Sea today, and approach the Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico tonight and Wednesday. It was moving west-northwest at about 9 miles per hour, threatening places like the U.S. Virgin Islands, St. Kitts and Antigua with heavy rains, risky storm surges and life-threatening surf conditions.

Puerto Rico's governor, Ricardo Rosselló, has declared a state of emergency ahead of Maria's expected arrival Wednesday.

"Initial reports are of widespread devastation". Remaining over warm water allowed Jose to strengthen back into a hurricane on September 15 as wind shear across the storm diminished.

At the Puerto Rico Convention Center, where many Irma evacuees still reside, volunteers are gearing up for Hurricane Maria.

Maria is the second hurricane to reach Category 5 status this season. A tropical storm warning is also in force for Martinique, Antigua and Barbuda, Saba, St Eustatius, St Maarten, St Lucia and Anguilla.
