This means that tropical storm conditions are possible tonight and tomorrow. As of 5:00 am, Tammy was approximately 300 miles east-southeast of Road Town and moving northwest at 9mph. Sustained winds for Tammy were up to 80 miles per hour. Tropical storm-force winds extended out up to 125 miles from the centre of the hurricane.
