Hurricane Karl Stays in Atlantic for Now
2004 09 20
MIAMI Sept. 19, 2004 — Hurricane Karl maintained Category 3 strength Sunday but remained on a course that will keep it in the Atlantic, a threat only to shipping, forecasters said.
Karl, the seventh hurricane this season, had top sustained winds near 115 mph and was expected to fluctuate in strength for the next day or so, according to the National Hurricane Center in Miami.
At 5 a.m. EDT, Karl was centered about 1,210 miles west of the Cape Verde islands closer to Africa than the Caribbean and was moving west-northwest near 12 mph.
Karl comes on the heels of Tropical Storm Jeanne, which early Sunday was near the southeastern Bahamas and was moving north-northwest away from the islands toward open seas, where it could gain strength.
Karl is the 11th named storm of the Atlantic hurricane season, which runs from June 1 to Nov. 30.
