Hurricane Omar is making it’s move on the Northern Leeward Islands of the Caribbean.

Early Wednesday afternoon, Omar was 195 miles southwest of St. Croix, moving east-northeast at 13 mph. Hurricane hunter aircraft have determined that Omar’s maximum sustained winds are 85 mph, making the storm a category one hurricane.

Omar is expected to track across the Virgin Islands in the next 24 hours and hurricane warnings are in effect for that part of the Caribbean.

Meanwhile, Tropical Depression 16 is tracking westward along the Honduras coast and may briefly reach tropical storm strength before making landfall.
