At 1100 AM AST (1500 UTC), the center of Hurricane Jose was located

the northwest near 16 mph (26 km/h). A northwest motion is expected

Maximum sustained winds are near 130 mph (215 km/h) with higher

48 hours.

Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 40 miles (65 km) from the

(260 km).

The estimated minimum central pressure is 944 mb (27.88 inches).


HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND

SURF:  Swells generated by Jose are affecting portions of the
Leeward Islands, the Virgin Islands, and the northern coast of
Puerto Rico, and will begin to affect Hispaniola, portions of the
Bahamas, and the Turks and Caicos Islands over the next couple of
days. These swells are likely to produce life-threatening surf and
rip current conditions. Please consult products from your local
weather office.
