MIAMI (AP) - Forecasters say Hurricane Danielle is expected to
become a major hurricane as it churns across the open Atlantic,
headed for Bermuda.
Danielle has developed a well-defined eye and had maximum
sustained winds Thursday near 110 mph (175 kph).
Danielle is several hundred miles away from Bermuda, but still
headed that way.
Farther east in the Atlantic, Tropical Storm Earl has maximum
sustained winds near 45 mph (75 kph). Forecasters expect Earl to
become a hurricane by early Saturday.
In the Pacific off Mexico's coast, Hurricane Frank is getting
stronger with maximum sustained winds of 90 mph (150 kph). It is
expected to weaken over the weekend as it moves over cooler waters.
