Hurricane Felix jumps to Category 4
The AccuWeather.com Hurricane Center is keeping an eye on strengthening Hurricane Felix in the southeastern Caribbean Sea. As of 5:00 p.m.EDT, it is a Category 4 storm. Strengthening Tropical Storm Henriette in the eastern Pacific continue to impact western Mexico with flooding rain.

The Hurricane Center reports that Felix is the sixth named storm in the Atlantic and the second hurricane of the season, and it was located about 440 miles southeast of Kingston, Jamaica at 5:00 p.m. EDT Sunday.

At 5 p.m. EDT on Sunday, the maximum sustained winds were near 140 mph, with 165-mph gusts. As it moved west-northwest at 20 mph into the warm waters of the eastern Caribbean, it became Tropical Storm Felix early Saturday morning. Felix continues to show signs of strengthening, even after a quick ramp up Sunday morning and afternoon. The storm soon could reach Category 5 status as it continues westward over warm Caribbean waters.
