THURSDAY 3PM: John Ghiorse’s Latest Update On Hurricane Earl
Thursday, September 02, 2010
Hurricane Earl continues to move on track and as of 3 PM this afternoon it is located about 225 miles south of Cape Hatteras, North Carolina and about 730 miles south southwest of Providence. It appears to be undergoing an eye wall replacement cycle so intensity has dropped a bit to Category 3 with top sustained winds of 125 mph. If that is so, it could reintensify later this afternoon or evening. It continues to move to the north at a fairly brisk clip of 18 mph. Latest reports indicate that rain bands are beginning to lash the Outer banks of North Carolina and winds are gusting to 20-30 mph at Cape Hatteras out of the northeast. The eye of the storm can now be seen on land-based radar. Remember the storm center is still over 200 miles from that location. I’ll have further updates as the situation warrants.
