Bertha, the second hurricane of the 2014 Atlantic season, is expected to weaken on Tuesday, the US National Hurricane Center (NHC) said in its latest advisory on Monday.

The hurricane is located about 490 miles (790 km) west of Bermuda, with maximum sustained winds of 75 miles per hour (120 km per hour), NHC said.

"A turn towards the northeast with increasing forward speed is expected over the next day or so," the Miami-based center said. "Bertha will pass about midway between the US east coast and Bermuda on Tuesday."
