STORM SURGE FLOODING OF 6-8 FEET ABOVE NORMAL TIDE LEVELS...
ALONG WITH LARGE BATTERING WAVES...ARE LIKELY OCCURRING OVER

THE HURRICANE.

RECENT REPORTS INDICATE THAT STRONG NORTHERLY WINDS HAVE EMPTIED THE

SHOULD IMMEDIATELY SEEK HIGHER GROUND.

HEAVY RAINS ARE CURRENTLY AFFECTING PORTIONS OF THE YUCATAN
PENINSULA AND BELIZE. THESE RAINS COULD PRODUCE LIFE-THREATENING
FLASH FLOODS AND MUD SLIDES. DUE TO THE SLOW MOTION OF THE
HURRICANE...ADDITIONAL DEVASTATING RAINFALL ACCUMULATIONS IN THE
VICINITY OF KEITH COULD EASILY EXCEED 15 TO 20 INCHES.

REPEATING THE 1 PM CDT POSITION...17.7 N... 87.9 W. MOVEMENT
