Hurricane Emily

By  | 

The second major hurricane of the season is moving on a track that will likely take it just south of Jamaica by early Saturday.

The National Hurricane center in Miami reports Hurricane Emily is a Category Four storm with sustained winds of 135 miles-an-hour. It's moving west-northwest at 20 miles per hour.

Emily slammed into Grenada Thursday. At least one man was killed.

The hurricane has unleashed heavy surf, gusty winds and torrential rains on areas hundreds of miles away, including Trinidad, Venezuela and the Dominican Republic. Authorities in Venezuela ordered oil tankers to stay in port as a precaution.

Forecasters say Emily could pose problems for the Gulf Coast of Texas and Mexico by Tuesday.
