Hurricane Danielle has formed far from land in the Atlantic with winds of 75 mph, and it's expected to strengthen in the next couple of days.
Danielle is the second Atlantic hurricane of the year. On Monday afternoon, it was about 1,320 miles east of the Lesser Antilles islands.
Forecasters at the U.S. National Hurricane Center in Miami expect the storm to become a major hurricane by Wednesday.
At this time, it does not appear that Danielle is a threat to the U.S. east coast or mainland.
