Hurricane Delta

Hurricane Delta Strengthening, Life-Threatening Storm Surge

MORGAN CITY, LOUISIANA – Delta is strengthening. In satellite imagery, an eye is now seen in the cold cloud tops of the central dense overcast. On the aircraft side, just received reports from an Air Force Reserve Hurricane Hunter aircraft included 700-mb flight-level winds of 119 kt, SFMR winds estimates near 90 kt, and a central pressure of 959 mb inside a 30 n mi wide eye. A blend of the flight-level and SFMR wind estimates give an initial intensity of 100 kt, and Delta is again a major hurricane.
