Northwest Florida Residents Watching Ivan

Hurricane Ivan still has not made that expected turn to the northwest, but remains a dangerous Category Five hurricane.

A hurricane warning remains posted for the westernmost parts of Cuba. There's also a tropical storm watch for the Florida Keys from the Seven-Mile Bridge westward, but that could be lowered later Monday. The evacuation order for the Keys has already been
rescinded.

This morning, Hurricane Ivan is centered about 110 miles south-southeast of the western tip of Cuba. Movement remains to the west-northwest at about nine miles an hour, though the turn to the northwest is still expected in the coming 24 hours.

Top sustained winds are back up to about 160 miles an hour. Some fluctuation is expected.

The center of the official forecast track shows Ivan's center about at Pensacola or Mobile at midweek, but forecast models vary landfall from Apalachicola westward to New Orleans.

Forecasters say it's highly dependent on just when Ivan makes its expected turn, and that northern or even some northeastern movement can be and that northern or even some northeastern movement can be expected later.
