NEW YORK -- Hurricane Fabian, a Category 4 storm packing winds of
135 mph, spared the Caribbean, but continued its slow turn to the
northwest on a track that could take it near Bermuda this weekend.
The closest that Fabian's 30-mile-wide eye got was approximately
225 miles north-northeast of St. Martin, according to the National
Hurricane Center in Miami.
Puerto Rico and the U.S. and British Virgin Islands Wednesday
issued coastal flood watches as a precaution against high waves and
rough surf from the storm.
