NHC – Hurricane Lee has surged to Category 4 status, packing maximum sustained winds of 130 mph.
The storm, currently positioned at 16.9N latitude and 51.3W longitude, threatens the Northern Leeward Islands, located approximately 780 miles east. Lee is moving west-northwest at 15 mph but is expected to gradually slow.
While fluctuations in intensity are likely, the hurricane is projected to remain a potent major hurricane.
Coastal regions in the Caribbean, including the Lesser Antilles, British and U.S. Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, Hispaniola, the Bahamas, and Bermuda, face life-threatening surf and rip current conditions.
The U.S. East Coast should also prepare for these hazards beginning Sunday.
