Hurricane Danny continues to move westward with Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic, Haiti, Cuba and Jamaica in its sights.
The storm continues to pace westward at 10 mph. Winds increased to 105 mph with higher gusts. However, the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) predicts Danny will run into a “less conducive environment” in the next 48 hours and lose some steam. Charts indicate it may hit the aforementioned islands as a tropical storm. NOAA Hurricane Hunter aircraft will investigate the system this afternoon.
In the meantime, Danny remains a compact hurricane with hurricane force winds extending just 15 miles from the center of the storm. Tropical storm winds extend just 70 miles out.
