Adjust Comment Print

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

If Oscar becomes a hurricane it will be the eighth so far this season, which will come to a close on November 30.

The National Hurricane Center in Miami said Sunday morning that Oscar was centered about 895 miles (1,440 kilometers) east-southeast of Bermuda, and it was moving southwest at 15 mph (24 kph). A westward to west-southwestward motion with an increase in forward speed is expected today and tonight, followed by a reduction in speed on Sunday. It was moving southwest at 12 miles per hour with maximum sustained winds of 70 miles per hour. It will weaken and become a powerful extratropical low over the north-central Atlantic by late Wednesday, forecasters said. If the forecast holds, Oscar would be the 8th Atlantic hurricane of 2018.
