MIAMI, Florida (CNN) -- Hurricane Omar churned across the eastern Caribbean on Wednesday on a course that will take it near Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands, the National Hurricane Center said.

1 of 2 Omar formed Tuesday in the eastern Caribbean and was dumping heavy rain Wednesday on the islands of Aruba, Bonaire and Curacao off the coast of Venezuela.

At 11 a.m. ET Wednesday, its center was about 235 miles (378 kilometers) south-southwest of San Juan, Puerto Rico.

The storm was moving northeast at near 9 mph (14 kph). Watch Venezuelans try to save homes, dogs »

Omar's maximum sustained winds were near 85 mph, making it a Category 1 hurricane. Hurricane-force winds extended outward up to 15 miles from Omar's center. Tropical storm-force winds extended 105 miles from Omar's center, forecasters said. See where Omar is headed »

"Omar would move through the northern Leeward Islands late tonight and early Thursday," the hurricane center in Miami, Florida, said.

A hurricane warning is in effect for several Leeward Islands, including the U.S. and British Virgin Islands, the Puerto Rican islands of Vieques and Culebra, St. Maarten, Saba, St. Eustatius, St. Barthelemy, Anguilla, St. Kitts and Nevis.

The island of Puerto Rico is under a tropical storm warning and a hurricane watch, but there could be a hurricane warning later Thursday, the hurricane center said.

A hurricane warning means hurricane conditions are expected in the warning area within the next 24 hours.

Antigua, Barbuda and Montserrat are under a tropical storm warning, meaning these locations could experience tropical storm conditions in the next 24 hours. iReport.com: Are you there? Tell us what you see

The storm's forecast track shows it heading into the open waters of the Atlantic Ocean after crossing over the Virgin Islands -- possibly as a Category 2 hurricane -- late Wednesday or early Thursday. Hurricane tracks are subject to variation, however, and predictions can change.

The storm is expected to dump up to 8 inches of rain over the Netherlands Antilles -- the chain of Caribbean islands off Venezuela's coast -- according to the NHC. Some areas could get 12 inches of rain.

Puerto Rico and some portions of the northern Leeward Islands, which include the Virgin Islands, could get up to 20 inches of rain, according to the forecast.

"These rains could produce life-threatening flash floods and mudslides," the hurricane center warned.

Also, the storm could produce large swells affecting the western and southern coasts of the Lesser Antilles -- the Caribbean islands that stretch from the Virgin Islands southward to the islands off Venezuela's coast.


The swells could cause beach erosion and damage coastal structures, the hurricane center said.

Omar is the 15th named storm of the Atlantic hurricane season, which began June 1 and ends November 30.
