MIAMI (AP) – Forecasters say Hurricane Delta has weakened slightly, but remains a Category 3 storm.
On Friday morning, Delta had maximum sustained winds of 115 mph (185 kph), down from 120 mph (195 kph) a few hours earlier. The National Hurricane Center in Miami says the hurricane is expected to continue a weakening trend until it makes landfall along the U.S. Gulf Coast, but is still a dangerous storm.
Delta is expected to make landfall Friday evening and could strike in the same general area as Hurricane Laura did in late August.
In its latest advisory, the Hurricane Center says Delta is about 130 miles (205 kilometers) south-southwest of Cameron, Louisiana. It is moving north at 13 mph (20 kph).
