Hurricane Cristobal continued to turn to the northeast on Tuesday, moving away from the Bahamas and the U.S. East Coast, but is still likely to cause dangerous coastal conditions, the National Hurricane Center said. Centered about 435 miles (700 km) west-southwest of Bermuda, Cristobal was moving at 15 mph (24 kph) and had strengthened slightly, with winds reaching 80 miles per hour (130 km per hour), the NHC added. The center of Cristobal is expected to pass northwest of Bermuda on Wednesday, causing tropical storm conditions on the British territory about 640 miles (1,030 km) off the coast of North Carolina.
