Hurricane Danielle Path as Tropical Depression Joins Forces
You might want to rethink your vacation plans: Hurricane Danielle has been joined by Tropical Depression 7 approximately 430 miles west of the Cape Verde Islands in the Atlantic Ocean. Neither storm poses a threat to the mainland U.S., but it's projected to come close to Bermuda. Danielle, moving west-northwest but likely to turn more northward, now has maximum sustained winds of 85 mph, a 10 mph increase from Tuesday night. The depression, with winds of 35 mph, is not quite strong enough yet to meet the 39 mph threshold to get a name as a storm, but will likely accelerate Wednesday as it moves over the warm waters in the tropical Atlantic. If so, it will be dubbed "Earl."
