AT 5 A.M. THE centre of Tropical Storm Danny was located near latitude 11.3° north, longitude 40.2° west, or about 1 445 miles east of the Lesser Antilles.

The National Hurricane Center says Danny is moving toward the west at near 14 miles per hour and a track to the west-northwest is expected during the next 48 hours.

Maximum sustained winds remain near 50 miles per hour (85 kilometres per hour) with higher gusts.

Some strengthening is forecast during the next 48 hours and the possibility still exists that Danny could become a hurricane on Thursday.

Tropical storm force winds extend outward up to 45 miles or 75 kilometres from the centre. (NB)
