Hurricane Sandy Heads To Eastern Cuba

Hurricane Sandy is now heading for Eastern Cuba, however, the Meteorological Service has continued the hurricane warning for Jamaica even as the eye of Hurricane Sandy moves over Jamaica’s north coast.

The Met Service says Jamaicans should still expect rainfall especially over central and eastern parishes, as rainbands associated with Hurricane Sandy continue to impact the island.

Sandy is a category one hurricane and is expected to strengthen before reaching Cuba tonight, weaken over the Spanish-speaking country and then re-strengthen over The Bahamas tomorrow.

Hurricane force winds extend outward up to 45 km (30 miles) from the centre, and tropical storm force winds extend up to 220 kilometres (140 miles), primarily east of the centre.
