Hurricane Bret is now a MAJOR CATEGORY 4 HURRICANE. CAPABLE OF EXTREME DAMAGE. People in TEXAS should Prepare, and other folks in the Gulf need to watch it VERY CLOSELY.
Still moving North, and still unsure the exact point of Landfall. Texas is most likely.
Pressures down to 655 MB and STILL STRENGTHENING.
More to Come
Minor Update: 9:19PM EDT: Other than Bret, Cindy still is moving west and the Wave Northeast of the Leeward Islands is starting to intensify, and may be TD#5 by tomorrow. We'll need to watch them all closely.
