Tropical Storm Delta nears hurricane strength

MIAMI (AP) — Tropical Storm Delta neared hurricane strength Thursday in the central Atlantic, continuing a record-breaking hurricane season.

The 25th named storm of the season formed Wednesday and poses a threat only to shipping, according to the National Hurricane Center in Miami. It was not headed for the United States.

"It's way out there in the middle of nowhere," hurricane specialist Stacy Stewart said.
