Danny Now a Major Hurricane

Although it’s a small cyclone, it’s packing quite a punch.  Hurricane Danny is now considered a major hurricane with Category 3 storm status.

Tropics_650x366Data gathered from NOAA Hurricane Hunter Aircraft shows that Danny has sustained winds of 115mph with gusts to 138mph! The storm continues to move to the west-northwest at 9mph, and that movement is expected to continue through the weekend.

Long range forecasts continue to show that Danny will weaken as it moves into the northeast Caribbean early Monday morning. We’ll continue to watch Danny closely.
