VIDEO: Hurricane Beryl barrels towards Jamaica as Cat 4 storm

Hurricane Beryl, which was the Atlantic’s earliest Category 5 hurricane on record, is now a powerful Category 4 storm and is racing towards Jamaica. The storm has weakened a little today over the Caribbean Sea, but winds are only down by a few kilometres an hour (or a couple miles per hour). There is very little difference between where it was as a Category 5 storm and where it is now.

We track Beryl’s destructive winds and heavy rain as it brushes Haiti and Dominican Republic right now, but aims more directly towards the southern side of Jamaica in particular tomorrow – within the next 24 hours.

Beyond that Beryl is likely to track near the Caymans, Mexico and potentially into Texas, USA next week.
