Hurricane Maria Rapidly Intensifies Into A Cat 5 Storm!


Blog Updated At 6:58 PM MDT.


Snapshot Taken At 5:45 PM MDT Monday, Dept 18, 2017.







Hurricane Maria has undergone rapid intensification today as was forecast and as of 6 PM MDT has blown up into a Category 5 Hurricane. She now has sustained winds of 160 mph with gusts near 195 mph! Her central pressure has fallen to 925 millibars or 27.32 inches of mercury. Maria has a 10 nautical mile diameter eye and is moving to the west-northwest at 9 mph.

Now the bad news...she was located 15 miles east-southeast of Dominica and is forecast to roll over that island shortly. There remains a real possibility that Maria will maul parts of the Leeward Islands as a Category 5 Hurricane including the Virgin Islands and sadly maybe even Puerto Rico between now and Wednesday. Should she maintain her current strength the destruction she will leave behind will be incredible...as bad or even worse than Irma.

The Truth Is Stranger Than Fiction!
