MIAMI (AP) — Tropical Storm Oscar has formed in the Atlantic Ocean, but does not pose a threat to land.

Oscar strengthened into a tropical storm late Saturday over open waters. The National Hurricane Center in Miami said Saturday night that the storm was centered about 930 miles (1,495 kilometers) east-southeast of Bermuda, and it was moving west-southwest at 20 mph (31 kph).

The storm had top sustained winds of 65 mph (100 kph).

Forecasters said Oscar is expected to become a hurricane Sunday as its track curves toward the North Atlantic.

It is this hurricane season’s 15th named storm.
