NOAA officials have declared the first major hurricane of the season, “Eduoard,” a category 3 whirlwind currently some 420 miles east of Bermuda.

Hurricane Edouard’s winds top 115 miles per hour and extend roughly 45 miles outward from the eye of the storm. NOAA says it’s moving north and west at 13 miles per hour. Officials expect the storm to lose strength as early as Wednesday, and they predict it has no likelihood of making landfall or causing damage.
