How strong is Hurricane Maria?

How strong is Hurricane Maria?”

These swells are likely to cause life-threatening surf and rip current conditions.

Acadia National Park has issued a warning to visitors to keep an eye out for high surf and risky waves.

The storm is heading northward through the Atlantic and may come near northeastern states midweek including Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Jersey and Rhode Island. It wasn't expected to make landfall but tropical storm watches were posted along the coast from DE to Massachusetts' Cape Cod. Currently, this depression in moving west at 8 miles per hour, and is expected to continue on this path.

This includes the coast from DE north to the Cape and islands in MA. "All of Puerto Rico will experience hurricane force winds". While a direct hit from Jose is still unlikely, ME will see a glancing blow from the storm.

A stray shower is possible, but most of us stay dry, warm and muggy for Monday.

Jose is forecast to make a north-northeast turn Tuesday night and should pass well offshore of the Outer Banks of North Carolina. While New York City residents will likely be spared the worst of the storm, New Yorkers should still prepare for two days of rain and heavy wind gusts.

Maria doesn't have the historic size and strength of Irma, and its hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 15 miles - far short of the 70 miles such winds extended from Irma's center. He didn't expect widespread severe weather in South Georgia this week, but said isolated "pop-up" wind damage was possible.

AT 11 p.m. THE centre of Hurricane Maria was located near 14.2°N, 58.4°W or about 100 miles or (165 km) north-east of Barbados.

In Miami-Dade County, the state's most populous county, meanwhile, 11 percent of the population still has no electricity, but authorities have announced that classes will resume on Monday after schools have been closed since September 6 due to the storm.

Warnings of surges which may be 9ft higher than normal tide levels have also been issued.

By Thursday, Jose will be weaker and will be further east from the New England coast.

Beach erosion will be possible, and unsafe rip currents will continue to be a concern down the shore.

In fact, while it affects the Leeward Islands, Maria will reach the status of a major Hurricane status. Maria is projected to hit Puerto Rico on Wednesday, according to the center's five-day cone of probability.
