Hurricane Maria Update 5 – LAA/LUS

Hurricane Maria remains a Category 3 Hurricane with 125 mph sustained winds as it passes northeast of the Turks and Caicos Islands. At 1100 EDT, the eye of Hurricane Maria was moving toward the northwest at 8 mph. A turn toward the north-northwest is expected later today, followed by a turn toward the north by late Saturday. On the forecast track, Maria’s core will move away from the Turks and Caicos Islands today, and pass northeast and east of the Bahamas through Sunday.
