At 800 PM AST (0000 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Harvey was
located near latitude 12.9 North, longitude 56.5 West. Harvey is

hours.

Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 35 miles (55 km) to

aircraft is 1005 mb (29.68 inches).


HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND

Lesser Antilles within the warning area by early Friday, making
outside preparations difficult or dangerous. Tropical storm

2 to 4 inches across portions of the Windward Islands from
