Hurricane Danielle becomes Category 4 storm

MIAMI (AP) - Hurricane Danielle has become a Category 4 storm far out over the Atlantic today as it heads in Bermuda's direction. It threatens to bring dangerous rip currents to the U.S. East Coast.

Danielle's maximum sustained winds were near 135 miles-per-hour with some slight strengthening possible.

Danielle was located about 480 miles southeast of Bermuda and moving north-northwest near 12 miles-per-hour. The hurricane's center is forecast to pass well east of Bermuda tomorrow night. But the National Hurricane Center in Miami says large waves and dangerous surf conditions are expected in Bermuda over the next few days.

Swells from Danielle also will begin arriving on the East Coast tomorrow and likely will cause rip currents through the weekend.
