NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE – The 8 a.m. Wednesday National Hurricane Center update on Tropical Storm ‪#‎Erika‬, has the system re-strengthened with max sustained winds of 50 mph with higher gusts.

8:00 AM AST Thu Aug 27
Location: 16.5°N 62.7°W
Moving: W at 16 mph
Min pressure: 1005 mb
Max sustained: 50 mph

The forecast track has changed little with Erika moving west-northwest and reaching the Bahamas this weekend with a gradual increase in strength.

Erika may pose a threat to Florida as early as Sunday night and while the official track continues just offshore of the east coast into early next week, the entire Florida peninsula remains at risk.

Since plenty of uncertainty in the track and intensity remains with Erika into the weekend and early next week, it is never too early to have an emergency preparedness plan in place so that you can be ready to act if necessary.
