Oscar Strengthens Into Tropical Storm; No Threat To Land

Oscar is the eighth hurricane of 2018 in the Atlantic. The National Hurricane Center in Miami said Saturday night that the storm was centered about 930 miles east-southeast of Bermuda, and it was moving west-southwest at 20 mph. A turn toward the north-northwest is forecast on Monday.

The storm's winds have increased to 75 miles per hour, making it a Category 1 hurricane. It was moving west at 12 miles per hour.

But Tropical Storm Oscar, earlier said to be a potential threat to Bermuda, had altered track and was no longer viewed as a danger.

Tropical Storm Oscar became Hurricane Oscar, officials with the National Hurricane Center said on October 28.

No coastal watches or warnings are in effect. Oscar is expected to become a powerful extratropical low over the north-central Atlantic by late Wednesday. According to a forecast discussion, Oscar is moving over "sufficiently warm water" that would help make it stronger.

If Oscar becomes a hurricane it will be the eighth so far this season, which will come to a close on November 30.
