Subtropical Storm Otto not moving much in Atlantic
MIAMI — The National Hurricane Center says Subtropical Storm Otto isn’t moving much as it swirls over the Atlantic.
Otto has maximum sustained winds Thursday near 60 mph (95 kph). The storm could transition to a tropical storm later in the day and could become a hurricane over the next two days.
Otto is located about 235 miles (380 kilometers) northeast of Grand Turk Island and is moving north near 2 mph (4 kph).
Subtropical storms share the characteristics of tropical storms, which get their power from the warm ocean, and extratropical storms that form when warm and cold fronts collide.
