ARLX052 Hurricane Marilyn 1
 
At 8 pm EDT/AST or 0000z, Friday, September 15, the center of
Hurricane Marilyn was located near latitude 17.9 North, longitude
64.8 West, or just north and very near St. Croix.  It is moving
toward the northwest near 12 mph and this motion is expected to
continue through Saturday.  On this course, Marilyn will move by the
remaining U.S. Virgin islands and near the eastern tip of Puerto
Rico tonight.
 
Hurricane warnings continue in effect for U.S. and British Virgin
Islands northwestward through Puerto Rico.  A hurricane watch is in
effect for the northeast coast of the Dominican Republic from
Cabrera to Cabo Engano.
 
Maximum sustained winds are near 100 mph.  Some additional slow
strengthening is possible and Marilyn could become a Category 3
hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson scale tonight or Saturday.
 
Amateurs are advised to monitor storm-related nets, especially the
Hurricane Watch Net on or near 14.325 MHz, but to not transmit on
emergency net frequencies unless directed to do so by net control
stations.
