Tropical Storm Emily Predicted Path

July 13th 2005

Tropical Storm Emily

Tropical Storm Emily is expected to come across Barbados today.  This is the fifth storm of the Atlantic hurricane season.  Storm warnings have been issued from Venezuela to Martinique.  Emily had 60 mph (miles per hour) sustained winds and may grow to hurricane strength.   

At 11 a.m. EDT (1500 GMT), the center of Emily was about 165 miles (265 km) southeast of Barbados and moving to the west at 20 mph (32 kph), according to the U.S. National Hurricane Center. If and when the winds reach 75 mph the storm then becomes classified as a hurricane.

Tobago, the northern island of Trinidad and Tobago, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, St. Lucia and Grenada were told to expect hurricane conditions within 24 hours.  The storm is expected to pass Jamaica on Saturday and may reach the Yucatan peninsula on Monday.  . 


This comes after Hurricane Dennis, which killed 70 people in Haiti and Jamaica.  Dennis then pounded Florida killing seven people, one in Mississippi and one in Georgia.
