Hurricane Danielle strengthened a little this morning as it continues to linger far out over the Atlantic Ocean while Frank gains strength as it begins to drift away from Mexico.
According to the National Hurricane Center, Danielle is presently located about 795 miles east of the Northern Leeward Islands and is moving west-northwest near 17 mph. Maximum sustained winds increased to near 85 mph and it’s expected to get even stronger over the next 48 hours.
Tropical Storm Frank is also building enough strength to be classified as a hurricane by later today. If it does, it will become the third hurricane of the season thus far, according to the National Hurricane Center.
Frank is located about 200 miles south-southeast of Manzanillo, Mexico, and is moving west-northwest near 9 mph .
