Hurricane update - 17 August (II)

Although Fay is at present not a strong tropical storm (maximum sustained windspeeds 55 knots), everyone in Florida is advised to keep a close eye on the storm's progression. NHC is now drawing a parallel with Hurricane Charley, which affected the state in 2004 as a category 4 hurricane.

Hurricane Local Statements have been issued from the NWS offices in Key West, Miami, Melbourne and Tampa Bay. If you are in the areas concerned, please read these statements and keep abreast of updates on them.
