Sandy may reach Category 3 before landfall in Southeast Cuba.
Sandy has rapidly intensified over the last twelve hours, including a large drop in pressure. This classifies her as a “bomb” in the meteorological sense.
She is a very large storm, covering almost a million square miles. Because of her girth, we don’t expect the Islands to weaken her much, and she will impact South Florida over the next 24 hours.
Winds: 110 mph
Pressure 957 mb
