WEAKER HURRICANE DANIELLE EXPECTED TO AVOID U.S.

Hurricane Danielle, far weaker than last week's Hurricane Bonnie and much farther out to sea, is expected to stay away from the United States.

"We don't think it's going to be any threat to land," said Miles Lawrence of the National Hurricane Center. "It's moving toward the northwest right on the track we've been forecasting for several days, and our forecast track keeps it away from the U.S. coast."

Early today, Danielle was about 225 miles northeast of Great Abaco Island in the Bahamas. It was moving north-northwest at about 6 mph. Maximum sustained winds were near 80 mph.
