SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (AP) - Islands at the eastern end of the Caribbean Sea are making preparations for approaching Hurricane Irma, which could threaten the area Tuesday.

Hurricane watches were posted Sunday for Antigua and Barbuda, Anguilla, Monserrat, St. Kitts and Nevis, St. Martin, Guadeloupe and the British Virgin Islands.

The U.S. National Hurricane Center said the center of the storm could near that region late Tuesday. It said islands farther north, including the U.S. Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico, should monitor the progress of the storm.

The U.S. hurricane center said Irma had maximum sustained winds of 115 mph (185 kph) on Sunday. It was centered about 790 miles (1,275 kilometers) east of the Leeward Islands and moved westward at 14 mph (22 kph).
