MIAMI (AP) - Hurricane Danielle remains far out over the Atlantic, but the Category 2 storm is still expected to bring dangerous rip currents to the U.S. East Coast.
Danielle's maximum sustained winds were near 110 mph (175 kph) on Saturday. It is about 325 miles (525 kilometers) east-southeast of Bermuda and is forecast to pass well east of the island Saturday. The U.S. National Hurricane Center in Miami says a tropical storm watch has been issued for the island.
Farther out in the Atlantic, Tropical Storm Earl has maximum sustained winds of 55 mph (90 kph). It could strengthen into a hurricane this weekend. A tropical storm watch was in effect for several islands in the eastern Caribbean, including St. Maarten, Antigua and Montserrat.
