Hurricane Harvey roars out to sea

Hurricane Harvey, the most dangerous storm so far this season, turned eastward and steered its 130-mile-per-hour winds clear of Bermuda. The eye of the storm was about 300 miles east-southeast of the resort islands , heading northeast at 18 miles an hour, the National Hurricane Center reported at noon Sept. 15.

Although Bermuda could still get gusty winds from the western edge of the storm, the threat of major damage to life and property has abated, forecasters said.

Harvey, the strongest hurricane since Allen, which devastated the alabama coast last year, "looks like it's going to spend its lifetime at sea," said forecaster Joe Pelissier.
