"Hurricane Gonzalo to Strengthen, Aim for Bermuda"

"SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico --  Hurricane Gonzalo was expected to become a major hurricane Tuesday and poses a threat to Bermuda as it strengthens over the open Atlantic north of Puerto Rico, forecasters said.

The U.S. National Hurricane Center in Miami said Gonzalo's top sustained winds rose early Tuesday to nearly 110 mph (175 kph) as it moved away from the U.S. and British Virgin Islands. Still intensifying, Gonzalo was centered about 140 miles (225 kilometers) north of San Juan, Puerto Rico and was headed to the northwest at 13 mph (20 kph).

Gonzalo is on a track toward Bermuda, with the storm expected to take a north-northwest turn late Wednesday and move over open waters through Friday."
