Subtropical Storm Melissa gets a little stronger

Posted: Updated:

MIAMI (AP) - Subtropical Storm Melissa has gained a little strength as it swirls over the central Atlantic.

The storm's maximum sustained winds early Tuesday are near 65 mph (100 kph). Additional strengthening is expected and the U.S. National Hurricane Center says the storm could transition to a tropical storm later in the day or overnight.

Melissa is centered about 595 miles (960 kilometers) east of Bermuda and is moving north near 10 mph (17 kph).

The National Hurricane Center says large swells from the storm will continue affecting parts of the northern Leeward Islands, Puerto Rico, Hispaniola and the southeastern Bahamas. The swells can bring life-threatening surf and rip currents.
