Hurricane Dean Update -- Saturday Morning

Hurricane Dean continues to strengthen in the Caribbean. As of the 5am update from the National Hurricane Center, Dean was a category 4 storm and wasn't far from category 5 status.
Dean is forecast to track very close to Jamaica tomorrow and eventually toward the Gulf of Mexico next week. It is still too early to call an exact landfall, but locations from the Texas coast to the coast of Mexico appear to be in the greatest danger by the middle of next week. A lot can change between now and then though.

For the very latest on Dean, tune in for our tropical update at :21 after the hour on News 14 Carolina. You can also find more on the track and other satellite images on the National Hurricane Center's website at
