Hurricane Ophelia Moving At Snail's Pace To Northeast

The Category 1 storm now poses no threat to land, forecasters said, and no watches or warnings have been issued.

It is now around 760 miles south-west of the Portuguese Azore islands, whipping up 75mph winds as it trundles eastwards. Ophelia remains well away from any landmasses at the present time. Forecasters say slight strengthening is possible over the next couple of days.

Hurricane Ophelia is expected to move towards Europe in the days ahead, Silverang said. The element set a record for the most successive storms that have reached the height of a hurricane, a meteorologist at Colorado State University said.

A hurricane is headed for the United Kingdom - and it's due to hit on the 30-year anniversary of the 1987 Great Storm.
