The U.S. National Hurricane Center in Miami said Sandy was expected to become a hurricane as it nears Jamaica on Wednesday. The late-season storm is expected to travel from south to north over the Caribbean country, which hasn’t sustained a direct hit from a hurricane’s eye since powerful Hurricane Gilbert in 1988. Hurricane conditions were possible in eastern Cuba by Wednesday night.
