The eye of a hurricane passes over Grand Bahama Island in a direction 60.0° north of west with a speed of 36.1 km/h. Three hours later, the course of the hurricane suddenly shifts due north, and its speed slows to 26.9 km/h. How far (in km) from Grand Bahama is the hurricane 4.6 h after it passes over the island?
