MIAMI (AP) - Forecasters say Hurricane Danielle has reached major hurricane status and keeps getting more dangerous.
National Hurricane Center forecasters say Danielle is now a Category 4 storm with maximum sustained winds of 135 mph.
Forecasters say swells churned up by Danielle could reach parts of the U.S. East Coast by the weekend and that dangerous surf conditions are expected in Bermuda, though the eye will likely move well east of the island.
Farther east, Tropical Storm Earl is racing west over the Atlantic with winds near 45 mph. Forecasters expect Earl to become a hurricane by early Saturday. Another system is following Earl's track and could become a depression soon.
In the Pacific off Mexico's coast, Hurricane Frank has winds of 85 mph.
