    Beryl is the earliest Category 5 storm ever to form in the Atlantic, fueled by record warm waters.

    Late Tuesday morning, the storm was located about 235 miles southeast of Isla Beata in the Dominican Republic. It had top winds of 160 mph (and was moving west-northwest at 22 mph.

    In Miami, National Hurricane Center Director Michael Brennan said Jamaica appears to be in the direct path of Beryl.

    It is NOT coincidence that "record hurricanes", "record warm waters", "atmospheric CO2 powering over 420 PPM" & "atmospheric methane leaping to 1928 PPB" are often spoken in the same breath.
