Hurricane Norbert - October 9th, 2008

As of October 8th, Norbert had become a major hurricane, strengthening into a category 4, though it weakened back to a category 3 the morning of October 9th.

According to the U.S. National Hurricane Center, Norbert’s maximum sustained winds had fallen from 215 km/h to 205 km/h (125mph) late on October 8th, though some fluctuations in intensity are expected over the next 24 hours. Even though it has weakened, it is still to be considered a dangerous hurricane.

Its hurricane-force winds reach out 55km (35mi) from the center, and it has tropical storm force winds up to 220km (140mi) from the center.

As of 2:00 PDT, Norbert’s center was located about 660km (410mi) south-southwest of the southernmost part of Baja California. It was moving northwest at approximately 11km/h (7mph) and is expected to turn towards the North, then to slightly increase in velocity and turn North-Northeast. Bloomberg reports that it is forecasted to hit Baja California north of Cabo San Lucas early on October 11th and then continue on to mainland Mexico later the same day.
