Caribbean: Hurricane Emily - Jul 2005
UPDATE ON HURRICANE EMILY
The National Hurricane Committee has issued the All Clear for all three islands as Hurricane Emily continues on her west- northwesterly path at 20mph.
With the 4 am advisory from the National Hurricane Centre in Miami placing Hurricane Emily 105 miles south-southwest of Grand Cayman, slightly more to the south than anticipated, the island is now experiencing winds of lower intensity than originally forecast for this time.
Key Message: The Cayman Islands is now under a Hurricane Watch. On its current path, Hurricane Emily is expected to pass close to the south of the Cayman Islands Saturday.
Emily is at this time a Category Three Hurricane, and some intensification is expected over the next 24 hours, taking Emily to Category Four.
The high pressure area in the vicinity of the Cayman Islands continues to raise expectations that Emily will continue on a more southerly course.
