Category 3 Hurricane Dean Heads Towards Gulf Of Mexico And Possibly Texas or New Orleans – Projected Path North West

Dean Projected Path

(Best Syndication) The first hurricane of the season, Dean, has blown into the Caribbean Sea knocking out power and causing landslides in the Lower Antilles. Some projections have the hurricane becoming a category 5 hurricane upon entering the Gulf of Mexico. The National Hurricane Center in Miami says Dean is currently a category 3 storm.

Hurricane hunters have entered the storm and have reported wind speeds of 125 knots (140 mph). Since the winds are faster at higher altitudes they calculate the winds at sea level to be about 125 mph. Currently Dean is headed towards Cancun and then possibly towards Texas or Cuba. Over the past couple hours the models have shifted the direction of the storm to the north of Jamaica. Even some models have it going even further east towards New Orleans.
