Hurricane Bill has strengthened since this morning’s update at the NHC.  Hurricane Bill now has sustained winds of 90mph, which makes him a strong Category 1 storm.  Wind speeds need to be sustained at 96mph to be designated a Category 2 storm.  That will happen within the next 6 hours – Bills’ minimum pressure has decreased from 987mb to 977mb.  Intensification will continue throughout today and tomorrow.
