Hurricane Ophelia becomes 10th Atlantic hurricane of 2017 season

Ophelia becomes 10th straight Atlantic hurricane, marking busiest season since 1983

"Ophelia is expected to transition to a hurricane-force post-tropical cyclone by Monday when it moves near Ireland and the United Kingdom", the NHC said.

The Met Office has issued a Yellow Warning for the tail end of Hurricane Ophelia which is set to hit Northern Ireland on Monday.

At this time in the hurricane season, conditions usually begin to become unfavorable for storms to develop, but some meteorologists are saying this year is different because of warm temperatures.

It is now around 760 miles south-west of the Portuguese Azore islands, whipping up 75mph winds as it trundles eastwards. And while cooler northern waters mean Ophelia won't have the intensity of recent storms that have slammed the U.S., it is still likely to pack hurricane-force winds.

Ophelia is forecast to drift northeast through today and to pass just south of the Azores into the weekend.

One member of Congress who viewed the ads said that of about 70 that person had viewed, all of them had racial themes. Asked what he wanted to know from Sandberg, Hoyer said: "What they knew and when they knew it".

The storm will coincide with the 30th anniversary of the Great Storm of 1987, which hit southern England on October 15 1987, costing an estimated £1 billion and claiming 18 lives.

The storm was upgraded to a category one hurricane last night and is taking an unpredictable path across the Atlantic.

The remnants of Ophelia are predicted to strike the British Isles on Sunday and although it will no longer be a hurricane, experts have warned it could still pack a punch.

A Met Office statement said: "A spell of very windy weather is likely on Monday in association with ex-Ophelia".
