Joaquin Strengthens, Expected to Become Major Hurricane

         A hurricane warning is in effect for central Bahamas and northwestern Bahamas as Hurricane Joaquin strengthens Wednesday, September 30, 2015. The National Hurricane Center reports the center of Joaquin is expected to move near or over portions of the central Bahamas Wednesday night and Thursday, and be near or over portions of northwestern Bahamas Thursday night or Friday.

         Reports from an Air Force Reserve Hurricane Hunter aircraft indicate Joaquin’s maximum sustained winds have increased to near 105 mph with higher gusts. Additional strengthening is forecast during the next 48 hours, and Joaquin is expected to become a major hurricane during the next 24 hours.

         Joaquin’s general motion toward the southwest at near 7 mph is expected to continue through Thursday. A turn toward the northwest and north is forecast Thursday night or Friday, NHC states.

         Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 35 miles from Joaquin’s center and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 125 miles, it adds.
