MIAMI — Hurricane Danielle is swirling 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 105 mph Saturday. It is about 330 miles east-southeast of Bermuda and is forecast to pass well east of the island. The U.S. National Hurricane Center in Miami has discontinued a tropical storm watch for the island.
Farther out in the Atlantic, Tropical Storm Earl has maximum sustained winds of 60 mph. It’s expected to become a hurricane this weekend. A tropical storm warning was in effect for several islands in the eastern Caribbean, including St. Maarten, Antigua and Montserrat.
