MIAMI (AP) — Hurricane Oscar is expected to produce high surf conditions along Bermuda’s beaches as it moves north in the Atlantic Ocean.
Forecasters at the National Hurricane Center in Miami said Oscar was centered about 470 miles (755 kilometers) east southeast of Bermuda on Tuesday morning with top winds of 105 mph (165 kph). The storm was moving north at about 13 mph (20 kph).
The hurricane center says hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 15 miles (30 kilometers) from the center.
Forecasters say Oscar is expected to accelerate and weaken on a track that could take it between Iceland and the British Isles this weekend.
