BULLETIN   9 PM   THURSDAY  AUGUST 14, 1969

...NO IMPORTANT CHANGE IN CAMILLE DURING THE EARLY EVENING HOURS...

...THE MIDNIGHT ADVISORY WILL BE BASED UPON AIRCRAFT RECONNAISSANCE BY THE NAVY...

AT 9 PM EDT...0100Z...THE CENTER OF STORM CAMILLE WAS ESTIMATED NEAR LATITUDE 20.3 NORTH...LONGITUDE 83.4 WEST.  THIS POSITION IS 440 MILES SOUTH SOUTHWEST OF MIAMI AND NEARLY 85 MILES SOUTH SOUTHWEST OF THE SOUTH COAST OF THE ISLE OF PINES.

CAMILLE IS MOVING ON A NORTHWESTERLY COURSE NEAR 10 MPH.  ANY CHANGE IN DIRECTION LATER TONIGHT OR FRIDAY WOULD LIKELY BE TOWARDS THE NORTH.  THIS WOULD MEAN THAT THE ISLE OF PINES AND THE EXTREME WESTERN PORTION OF CUBA ARE THE AREAS MOST LIKELY TO GET GALE WINDS...HIGH TIDES...AND HEAVY RAINS LATE TONIGHT AND FRIDAY.

WHILE THERE HAVE BEEN NO REPORTS TO INDICATE THAT WINDS ARE HIGHER THAN 60 TO 65 MPH NEAR THE CENTER...CONDITIONS FAVOR SOME INTENSIFICATION.

PRECAUTIONS SHOULD BE CONTINUED ON THE ISLE OF PINES AND WESTERN CUBA AND ALL INTERESTS IN THESE AREAS...INCLUDING THE FLORIDA KEYS...THE YUCATAN...AND THE SOUTHEASTERN GULF OF MEXICO SHOULD KEEP IN CLOSE TOUCH WITH FUTURE ADVISORIES AND BULLETINS.

HEAVY RAINS HAVE OCCURRED ON GRAND CAYMAN AND WIND GUSTS ON THAT ISLAND REACHED 48 MPH.  NO REPORTS OF DAMAGE HAVE BEEN RECEIVED AT THE NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER.

REPEATING THE 9 PM EDT POSITION...20.3 NORTH...83.4 WEST.

THE NEXT ADVISORY WILL BE ISSUED BY THE NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER IN MIAMI AT MIDNIGHT.
