Storm upgraded - but not a threat to Bermuda
A sub-tropical storm in the Atlantic was tonight upgraded to a storm.
But Tropical Storm Oscar, earlier said to be a potential threat to Bermuda, had altered track and was no longer viewed as a danger.
TS Oscar was said to be about 927 miles east south east of Bermuda at midnight.
The Bermuda Weather Service said the storm was moving west at about 19.5 mph with winds of more than 64 mph and gusts of 79 mph.
The weather service said TS Oscar’s closest point of approach inside three days was expected to be 487 miles to the east south east of the island about 5am on Tuesday.
But forecasters said: “This system may move closer to Bermuda after this time period depending upon its track.”
