MIAMI (AP) — Tropical Storm Dorian is weakening some as it moves across the open Atlantic, far from land.
The storm's maximum sustained winds were near 50 mph (80 kph) late Thursday.
Dorian is centered about 1,550 miles (2494 kilometers) east of the Northern Leeward Islands, off the coast of west Africa, and is moving west-northwest near 20 mph (32 kph).
Currently, there are no land threats from the storm.
