Tracking the tropics:
Hurricane Fiona continues as a category 4 hurricane with wind speeds currently reaching 130 mph. As this storm moves away from the Bahamas, it is expected to move northward and curve back out toward the Atlantic before it decreases in strength. We are also keeping an eye on the West Atlantic where I-98-L is gaining strength near the coast of South America. This storm is expected to move into the Gulf of Mexico by next week.
