Oscar strengthened into a tropical storm late Saturday over open waters. As of 10 p.m., the National Hurricane Center said Oscar was centered some 660 miles southeast of Bermuda and 645 miles northeast of the northern Leeward Islands and moving west at 16 mph.
Tropical Storm Oscar became Hurricane Oscar, officials with the National Hurricane Center said on October 28. Oscar will be steered west until Monday when the storm system now impacting the U.S. East Coast blocks its progress.
TS Oscar was said to be about 927 miles east south east of Bermuda at midnight. Oscar already packs sustained winds around 60 miles per hour.
Germany's Angela Merkel Says She Won't Seek Re-Election; Will Leave Party Role
Merkel has been in a hard position since September 2017, when a national election left her party without an overall majority. His CDU colleague Christian von Steffen was more blunt: 'We need a meaningful programme with a clear path and new faces'.
At press time, the National Hurricane Center forecast for the storm system put the likelihood of it developing into a tropical cyclone during the next 48 hours at 90 percent. "On a rare occasion, storms that form near the Central America coast can track north into the Gulf of Mexico and turn to the northeast toward Florida", it stated.
Hurricane season in the Atlantic Ocean usually starts from the month of June and lasts till November 30.
