ORIGINAL (Feb 22)
An intense storm low over the west-central North Atlantic was producing storm to hurricane force winds (50-65 knots) and waves building up to 11 meters (36 ft.) during the next 18-24 hours within 300 NM southwest of the center. This system is developing along the shipping routes between Northern Europe and the Mediterranean Sea to/from US East and Gulf Ports and will likely cause some delays.
