According to the National Hurricane Center of the United States, the storm surge produced by Larry will increase ocean currents especially from next Sunday.

The center of the storm was located near latitude 14.6 north, longitude 38.9 west; placing it 1,560 kilometers from southern tip of Cape Verde Islands.

Larry is moving west at about 31 kilometers per hour (km/h) and this pattern is expected to continue for coming days before turning northwest next week.

Its maximum sustained winds increased to about 150 km/h with stronger gusts and further strengthening is forecast as Larry acquires greater organization as a hurricane on Friday night.

Hurricane force winds extend up to 35 kilometers from the center and tropical storm force winds up to 240 kilometers. The estimated minimum central pressure is 982 hectoPascal.
