Hurricane Danny strengthens slightly but poses no threat

MIAMI (AP) -

Hurricane Danny, the first hurricane of the Atlantic season, has strengthened a little more.

Danny's maximum sustained winds Thursday morning have increased to near 85 mph (120 kph) and additional strengthening is forecast during the next 24 hours but it will begin to weaken after that.

The hurricane is centered about 1,030 miles (1,655 kilometers) east of the Windward Islands and is moving west-northwest near 10 mph (17 kph).

The U.S. National Hurricane Center says Danny is a small storm with hurricane-force winds only extending outward up to 10 miles (20 kilometers) from the center.

The storm does not currently pose a threat to any land.
