Hurricane Ivan: Forecast

By  | 

September 9th
Forecasters say Hurricane Ivan is still on track to hit Jamaica tomorrow as an extremely dangerous Category Five storm.

At 2 p-m, Eastern time, the center of Ivan was 360 miles southeast of Kingston, Jamaica, moving west-northwest at 15 miles-per-hour. A government hurricane aircraft has confirmed sustained winds of 160 miles-per-hour.

Forecasters say the future track of Ivan is highly uncertain, because they expect steering currents to collapse as the storm crosses Cuba. Experts say Ivan will slow down as it threatens Florida on Monday.
