Karl Now a Major Hurricane - About to Make Landfall

At 7am CDT this morning...the center of Hurricane Karl was located 50 miles Northeast of Veracruz, Mexico...and moving West at 9 mph.

In yesterday morning's post...we mentioned that Karl had intensified rapidly upon moving back into the Gulf from the Yucatan Peninsula the day before.  That strengthening continued yesterday, and Karl is currently packing winds of 120 mph, which makes him a "major" hurricane.

Karl will make landfall later this morning along the lower Mexican coast.
