The Event: At 11:00 am July 16, 2005 Eastern Caribbean Time, the center of Hurricane Emily was located near latitude 16.2 north, longitude 77.3 west or about 130 miles SSW of Kingston, Jamaica and about 335 miles SE of Grand Cayman. Emily is once again a Category 4 Hurricane on the Saffir Simpson Scale and is moving WNW near 18 mph, with maximum sustained winds of 145 mph with gusts. This general motion is expected to continue for the next 24 hours and should bring the centre of Hurricane EMILY south of Jamaica today and near Grand Cayman Island tonight.
Episcopal Relief and Development is monitoring Hurricane Emily, a powerful Category 3 storm with 125 mph winds, as it heads towards the central Caribbean Sea.
On Thursday, the hurricane struck the Windward Islands, hitting St. Vincent with strong winds which tore the roofs off homes. Damage assessments continue, particularly of the island's banana crop.
One person was killed in Grenada following heavy rain which caused flooding and mudslides. The storm also flooded areas in Trinidad and Tobago.
Hurricane Emily is now headed toward Jamaica and the Cayman Islands.
