Forecasters say Epsilon is now a hurricane.

Forecasters at the National Hurricane Center in Miami say the 26th named storm of the busiest hurricane season has strengthened into a hurricane.

At 9 a-m (C-D-T), the center of the hurricane was located about 1-thousand, 220 miles west of the Azores and is moving toward the northeast near 14 miles-per-hour. Maximum sustained winds are near
75 miles-per-hour, but forecasters say little change is strength is expected and a gradual weakening is forecast to begin tonight or tomorrow.

The Atlantic hurricane season lasts six months and officially ended Wednesday.
