September 10, 2004

Right now Ivan is bearing down on Jamaica. The storm is just southeast of Kingston. It's expected to bring its center to Jamaica tonight or early tomorrow morning.

Ivan's winds are near 145 miles an hour and is being blamed for the deaths of at least 23 people.

Evacuations in the Florida keys are already underway. After it blows through Jamaica, it will hit western Cuba, probably Sunday. Then up into the Gulf just offshore from the Tampa Bay area and coming ashore a little farther north.

At 5:00pm, the eye was located near Latitude 17.0 north, longitude 76.2 west, or about 80 miles south-southeast of Kingston Jamaica.

Ivan is moving toward the west-northwest near 13 mph, with a gradual decrease in forward speed. This motion is expected to bring the core of Ivan to near or over Jamaica tonight or early Saturday and over the Cayman islands late Saturday.

Maximum sustained winds have decreased to near 140 mph, with higher gusts.

Stronger winds, especially in gusts, are likely over elevated terrain. Some fluctuations in intensity are likely during the next 24 hours.

Hurricane force winds extend outward up to 60 miles, from the center, and tropical storm force winds extend outward up to 175 miles.

Where is it likely to go?
