Hurricane Lili

As was the case with Hurricane Isidore roughly two weeks ago, Hurricane Lili is bearing down on western Cuba. In this image, Lili is centered near 21.8 north longitude and 83.7 west latitude. Lili is moving towards the west-northwest near 13 mph (20 km/hr), and this motion is expected to continue with an increase in forward speed during the next 24 hours. Maximum sustained winds are near 90 mph (150 km/hr) with higher gusts. Storm surges of 8 to 10 feet above normal tide levels are expected along the south coast of western Cuba.
