Oscar Strengthens Into Tropical Storm; No Threat To Land

Oscar continues to swirl over the Atlantic Ocean without posing any threat to the land.

Subtropical Storm Oscar formed late Friday over open waters.

Hurricane Oscar is now the eighth hurricane in the 2018 Atlantic hurricane season. The National Hurricane Center in Miami said Saturday morning that Oscar was centred about 1,040 miles (1,675 kilometres) east-southeast of Bermuda, and it was moving west at 13 mph (20 kph). A turn toward the west-southwest is anticipated later today, followed by a turn back toward the west on Sunday.

Why Jewish hospital president checked on injured synagogue shooting suspect
Authorities say he expressed hatred toward Jews during the rampage Saturday morning and in later comments to police. The victims' ages range between 45 and 97 years old, and four police officers were injured in addition to others.

Maximum sustained winds have increased to near 50 miles per hour with higher gusts. "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. Regardless of strength, Hurricane Oscar is not expected to be a threat to land.

Hurricane winds extend only 15 miles from the center, while tropical storm force winds extend outward up to 115 miles.

The estimated minimum central pressure is 995 mb (29.39 inches).
