Hurricane Ophelia moving over northeast Atlantic

MIAMI - Hurricane Ophelia is continuing to pack a punch as it accelerates to the east-northeast across the Atlantic.

The U.S. National Hurricane Center says Ophelia is still far out at sea and no threat to land, some 480 miles (770 kilometers) southwest of the Azores. But the storm's five-day forecast, which can change, shows a post-tropical Ophelia nearing the British Isles by Monday.

On Friday afternoon, the storm had maximum sustained winds of 100 mph (155 kph) and was moving to the east-northeast at 13 mph (20 kph). The Miami-based hurricane center says the British Isles, including Ireland, should be watching the storm's progress.
