Hurricane Nadine takes shape in Atlantic
MIAMI, Sept 15 |
MIAMI, Sept 15 (Reuters) - Hurricane Nadine swirled east of Bermuda over the open Atlantic Ocean on Saturday and forecasters said it posed no threat to land or to U.S. energy interests in the Gulf of Mexico.
Nadine, the eighth hurricane of the Atlantic season, formed on Friday night.
The U.S. National Hurricane Center said the cyclone was packing top sustained winds of 80 miles (130 km) per hour late Saturday morning.
It was located about 880 miles (1,420 km) east of Bermuda and moving east-northeast at 15 mph (24 kph), the Miami-based hurricane center said.
