Hurricane Oscar gains strength but still not threat to land

The National Hurricane Center in Miami said Saturday morning that Oscar was centred about 1,040 miles (1,675 kilometres) east-southeast of Bermuda, and it was moving west at 13 mph (20 kph).

Oscar is the 15th named storm this season, the 7th storm to be subtropical.

Hurricane Oscar has strengthened to a Category 2 hurricane as it swirls in the Atlantic Ocean, forecasters said Tuesday.

Oscar is the eighth hurricane of 2018 in the Atlantic.

A Small Craft Warning was expected to remain in effect through Tuesday night.

At 500 a.m. AST (0900 UTC), the center of Hurricane Oscar was located near latitude 28.6 north, longitude 58.2 west. Oscar is moving toward the north near 13 miles per hour (20 km/h).

Forecasters at the Miami-based hurricane centre say Oscar has slowed down as it starts to turn north. According to a forecast discussion, Oscar is moving over "sufficiently warm water" that would help make it stronger.

The Atlantic hurricane season ends on November 30 and usually peaks in mid-September.
