The year of the hurricane continues ..
As of 11 a.m., Maria had grown into a “rapidly intensifying” Category 3 storm with maximum sustained winds of 120 mph and was about 60 miles east of Martinique, a French island that is home to some 400,000 people, the National Hurricane Center said.
Maria could grow into a “major hurricane” by Monday night or early Tuesday as it takes aim at Puerto Rico’s southern coast, the hurricane center said…
This will be he first time since 1928 that Puerto Rico had a cat 4 or 5 storm hit it..
And then? Looking more like landfall along the United States east Coast may occur..
