Forecasters Telling Carolina Residents To Watch "Maria"

posted by 560 WVOC-AM -

National Hurricane Center forecasters are advising residents of the Carolinas to keep an eye on Hurricane Maria in the Caribbean.

The Category-Five hurricane made its first landfall last night on the island of Dominica with destructive 160 miles-per-hour winds. It's expected to barrel in on Puerto Rico sometime tonight or tomorrow morning as a major hurricane with winds greater than 129 miles-per-hour.

At least two long-range computer models from NOAA have the system approaching the South Carolina coast sometime next week.

Meteorologists say it's too early to know where the storm will go, but that residents should follow the storm's progress over the next few days.
