Hurricanes in the Atlantic

Category one hurricane Danielle is over the Atlantic and continues moving to the north-east without affecting any land. Tropical storm Earl attains hurricane strength, this fellow is moving to the west and dangerously approaching to the northern Leeward islands in the Caribbean, the governments of Antigua, Barbuda, Montserrat, St. Kitts, nevis, Anguilla, St. Martin, St. Maarten, Saba and Sr. Eustatius has issued hurricane warning and a hurricane watch is in effect for British Virgin Islands, US Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico. It is expected that Earl makes a turn to the west-northwest before reaching such islands but if it continues with the same west path it will pass near or over them tomorrow.
The area of low pressure between the west coast of Africa and the Caribbean still has a high chance to develop (80%) into a tropical depression, we will continue tracking this one.
Currently there is no threat to Mexico because of any of these tropical systems.
