Danielle becomes category 4 storm
~In the US, Hurricane Danielle has gather strength to become a category four storm as it sweeps across the North Atlantic Ocean heading towards Bermuda.
The US National Hurricane Center said on Friday that a category-four Danielle could very well bring dangerous rip currents to the country's East Cost.
Danielle's maximum sustained winds increased to near 215 km/h (135 mph) early in the day with some additional strengthening possible.
The hurricane center's forecast map indicates that it will begin to lose steam over the weekend.
"A gradual turn toward the north-northwest is expected by tonight followed by a turn toward the north on Saturday," the forecast said, CNN reported.
"On the forecast track ... the center of Danielle is expected to pass well east of Bermuda Saturday night."
