Philippe keeps its strength in far Atlantic
MIAMI (AP) -- Forecasters say Tropical Storm Philippe is maintaining its strength in the far Atlantic but it's not expected to threaten land.
The storm's center was located Tuesday about 720 miles (1,160 km) southeast of Bermuda and was moving west at 10 mph (17 kph).
Its maximum sustained winds were 65 mph (100 kph) and Philippe could become a hurricane by late Wednesday. Tropical storm force winds extend outward up to 105 miles (165 km) from the center.
Philippe is expected to slow down and turn to the northwest on Wednesday.
