MIAMI (AP) — Hurricane Sam is a powerful Category 4 storm again with forecasters predicting a glancing blow to Bermuda as it spins north in the Atlantic Ocean. A tropical storm watch was issued on Thursday for the island. The U.S. National Hurricane Center said Sam is centered about 550 miles south-southeast of Bermuda and should pass to the east of the island, but with tropical storm-force winds extending 150 miles from its center. Sam’s top winds were near 145 mph Thursday night. Swells from Hurricane Sam also could send high surf and dangerous rip currents to U.S. East Coast beaches this weekend. Tropical Storm Victor is also at sea but poses no threat to land.
