PostSubject: Hurricane Paloma   Sat Nov 08, 2008 8:59 am

Major Hurricane Paloma, now moving away from Cayman Island, is now impacting Little Cayman and Cayman Brac.
As
of 7 a.m. EST, Hurricane Paloma was located about 110 miles
east-northeast of Grand Cayman Island, or near Cayman Brac, moving to
the northeast at 8 mph.

Paloma
continues to strengthen and based on the latest information for Air
Force Reserve Hurricane Hunter Aircraft, winds near the center have
increased to 140 mph; it remains a major category 4 hurricane.

Paloma has about peaked in intensity. Weakening late today into Sunday will begin as shearing winds aloft increase.
Bands
of heavy rain, destructive wind, and high waves will impact the eastern
Cayman Islands this morning. Conditions will rapidly deteriorate over
central Cuba later today and especially tonight as Paloma makes
landfall over central Cuba.

Hurricane
warnings remain in effect for the Cayman Islands, as well as for most
of the southwestern and northeastern central coasts of Cuba. Tropical
storm warnings have been posted for the southern Cuba coasts as well.

Heavy
rain will bring flash flooding and mudslides to east-central Cuba today
through Sunday, along with strong winds and high surf along coastal
areas.

Beyond Sunday, the aforementioned
increase in shearing winds aloft, combined with the higher elevations
of Cuba, should quickly weaken Paloma to a tropical storm after
landfall. It may then emerge south of the Bahamas early next week.

As a result, tropical storm watches have been posted for the central Bahamas.
