Forecasters Keeping Eye On Tropical Storm Emily

Forecasters expect Tropical Storm Emily to become a hurricane any day now. Tropical Storm Emily is gaining strength and increasing in forward speed.

Emily is expected to be classified a hurricane as it nears Barbados sometime tomorrow. Tropical Storm Emily is expected to gain strength as it enters the Caribbean, taking a similar path that Hurricane Dennis did.

When Emily reaches the Caribbean, it could quite possibly become a category two hurricane with winds in excess of 96 mph (Category Two winds/Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Scale).
