A “tiny” Hurricane Danny continued to churn west-northwest in the central Atlantic and was expected to weaken Saturday, the National Hurricane Center has said.

“Danny remains a tiny hurricane,” a Hurricane Center advisory said.

At 5:00 am on Friday the eye of hurricane Danny was located near latitude 13.7 north and longitude 47.4 west or about 985 miles east-southeast of the Leeward Islands.

The Hurricane is moving toward the west-northwest near 10 mph. Maximum sustained winds have increased to near 85 mph with higher gusts.

Danny became the first Atlantic hurricane of the 2015 season on Thursday.

Forecasters said strengthening is possible in the next 24 hours, but the storm should weaken by Saturday.

Hurricane Danny is forecast to turn west Saturday evening.

No coastal watches or warnings are in effect in relations to the hurricane but local disaster authorities have told Dominicans to be alert and vigilant.
