TALLAHASSEE, FL (WTXL) -- At this time, there is still only one area of interest in the Atlantic Basin. Hurricane Oscar continues to churn and strengthen slightly in the central Atlantic Ocean, but it is not expected to be a threat to land.
Hurricane Oscar is now the eighth hurricane in the 2018 Atlantic hurricane season. This storm is about 730 miles southeast of Bermuda with sustained winds of 75 mph. Oscar is still moving toward the west at 16 mph.
Over the next few days, this storm will slowly begin turning toward the northeast. Additional strengthening is possible as well due to the warm waters and low wind shear directly above the storm. Regardless of strength, Hurricane Oscar is not expected to be a threat to land.
