Cumulative wind distribution.
This display shows how the size of the storm has changed, and the areas affected so far by tropical storm and hurricane force winds, in orange and red, respectively. It is based on information contained in the set of advisories indicated in the caption at the top of the figure. Note that the display is based on estimated coverage of one-minute average winds, not gusts.

INDICATE THAT STRONG NORTHERLY WINDS HAVE EMPTIED THE BAY OF

EXTREMELY DANGEROUS SITUATION BECAUSE THE BAY WATER CAN RAPIDLY
RETURN AND FLOOD THE ENTIRE BAY AND SURROUNDING AREAS IN VERY SHORT
