Hurricane Danielle Downgraded to Category 1, Heading Toward Bermuda

Hurricane Danielle was downgraded to a Category 1 storm as winds died down from 100 miles per hour to 80 mph on Tuesday, the U.S. National Hurricane Center said.

The storm still posed no threat to energy interests in the Gulf of Mexico as it headed northwest and to the east of Bermuda.

According to the National Weather Service, The National Hurricane Center is issuing advisories for the North Atlantic, the Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico.

It is currently located about 1,110 miles east of the Lesser Antilles. According to the National Hurricane Center, “Showers and thunderstorms continue to become better organized in association with an area of low pressure passing about 100 miles south of the Cape Verde Islands…and it appears that a tropical depression could be forming.”

There is a 90 percent chance that this system could become a tropical cyclone during the next 48 hours.
