MIAMI (AP) -- Tropical Storm Sean has weakened slightly as it
picks up speed and continues to move over the Atlantic, kicking up
choppy surf and gusty winds on Bermuda.
The National Hurricane Center in Miami said Friday that
Sean had maximum sustained winds of 60 mph. It was about
95 miles west-northwest of Bermuda and moving northeast at 22 mph.
A tropical storm warning remains in effect for Bermuda, which is
expected to see 1 to 3 inches of rainfall. Little change in
strength is expected before Sean is absorbed by a frontal system
Friday night or Saturday.
Swells generated by the storm also are affecting the
southeastern U.S. coast with life-threatening surf and rip
currents. The swells should subside in a day or two.
