Dennis grows stronger – and moves closer

My parents have a condo in Florida. These kinds of things always make me worry, cause I don’t think they’ve got flood insurance.
Weather: Dennis grows stronger – and moves closer
The news for storm-weary Florida residents got worse Thursday: Not only did Hurricane Dennis grow stronger, its projected path moved closer to the Florida peninsula.
Mandatory evacuations of the lower Florida Keys were ordered as Dennis developed into a Category 4 storm, with sustained winds in excess of 131 mph.
The storm rumbled past Jamaica on Thursday at about 15 mph. Ten-foot waves lashed the island’s shores, flooding low-lying areas. Winds as fast as 115 mph tore off roofs and toppled trees.
Dennis will cross central Cuba today, forecasters predicted, then bear down on the western Florida Keys. Thereafter, the storm is expected to travel northwest through the Gulf of Mexico and make landfall Sunday somewhere between Louisiana and the Florida Panhandle.
