Hurricane Gonzalo major storm, aims for Bermuda
MIAMI - Forecasters say Gonzalo has blown into a major hurricane in the Caribbean, churning up heavy surf as it approaches Bermuda.
The U.S. National Hurricane Center in Miami says Gonzalo is a Category 3 hurricane on with top sustained winds of 115 mph (185 kph) as it moved away from the U.S. and British Virgin Islands Tuesday.
Still intensifying, Gonzalo was centered about 770 miles (1,240 kilometers) south of Bermuda and moving northwest at 13 mph (20 kph).
The storm was expected to take a north-northwest turn late Wednesday and move over open waters toward Bermuda through Friday.
