Dawn has broken over the northern gulf coast with light rain and moderate winds. Both of which are expected to increase in intensity as Hurricane Dennis approaches.
After weakening to a Category Two storm over Cuba, Dennis regrouped in the Gulf yesterday and became a Category Four storm
again early this morning, with sustained winds of 145 miles per hour. The National Hurricane Center has no record of a Category Four storm ever hitting the Florida Panhandle or Alabama.
At 7 a-m, Dennis' eye was about 165 miles south-southeast of Panama City in the Panhandle and 205 miles southeast of Pascagoula, Mississippi. Forecasters say it's moving north-northwest at about 15 miles per hour and expected to turn more to the north before landfall.
