 Ophelia strengthens to a Category 2 hurricane

The Latest on tropical weather (all times local):

4:45 p.m.

Hurricane Ophelia has strengthened to a Category 2 storm, swirling far from land in the eastern Atlantic.

The U.S. National Hurricane Center says Ophelia is barely moving and is continuing to strengthening, now boasting top sustained winds of 100 mph (kph).

On Thursday afternoon, Ophelia’s core was located about 715 miles (1,150 kilometers) southwest of the Azores, where it was virtually stationary.

The Miami-based hurricane center says Ophelia should lose a little strength in the next 48 hours but is expected to remain a hurricane for the next couple of days.

The hurricane center’s five-day forecast, which can change, has Ophelia heading close to the British Isles by Monday afternoon. That’s a bit of an unusual track for Atlantic storms. Currently there are no coastal watches or warnings in effect.

Ophelia remnants to pelt Britain with 80mph gales triggering 'danger to life' warning

Volatile remnants of ex-Hurricane Ophelia has sparked "danger to life" warnings of 80mph winds, heavy downpours and large waves, as it continues to hurtle towards to UK.

The country is on course to be thrashed by the remains of the storm system, which has set the record for the strongest hurricane to hit east of the Atlantic.

Weather officials have warned of a "danger to life from flying debris" with gale-force gusts expected in coastal areas, particularly in Northern Ireland where an amber weather alert has been issued.

The ex-hurricane is expected to crash into the UK on Sunday night, according to the National Hurricane Center.

Trump is concerned now....because there are some golf  courses in Britain  which may be damaged..and he doesnt have the proper golf club to assure his golf ball doesnt hit or get stuck in a house roof laying in the middle of the fairway!!!!

I'm sure that some "off the wall" country that no one ever heard of will be over bestowed with gifts from the USA....So the Administration will go down as a Great Benefactor....and our own people ..."never filled out the proper paper work etc"""
