Bill Gaining In Strength
Hurricane Bill formed early Monday. The storm had maximum sustained winds near 90 mph that were expected to gain speed and top 110 mph.
"Some strengthening is forecast during the next 48hrs and Bill could become a major hurricane by Wednesday”, said Daniel Brown, a hurricane specialist for the National Hurricane Center in Miami.
Bill was centered about 1,160 miles east of the Lesser Antilles and moving west-northwest at 22 mph. The three-day forecast anticipates the storm passing northeast of Puerto Rico and heading toward Bermuda.
