Only four days after going through Hurricane Georges in Puerto Rico, I was able to intercept the storm a second time in the lower Florida Keys. From September 22-24, Georges made landfall in the Dominican Republic, crossed into Haiti, emerged over the Windward passage and then made landfall in Eastern Cuba. The hurricane moved west-northwest skirting the northern coast of Cuba for a day, before emerging into the Florida Straits on the 24th. Georges began strengthening as it approached the Florida Keys, passing directly over Key West as a Category Two, with sustained winds of 105mph and gusts to 125mph. The minimum central pressure reported at landfall in Key West was 981mb (28.97in). I was accompanied on this chase by fellow storm chaser Jim Edds.
