(Reuters) - Delta has weakened into a Category 1 Hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale, but is expected to re-strengthen through Thursday, the U.S. National Hurricane Center (NHC) said.
The hurricane was located about 580 miles (935 km) south-southeast of Cameron, Louisiana, packing maximum sustained winds of 85 miles per hour (140 km per hour), the Miami-based weather forecaster said on Wednesday.
“Re-strengthening is forecast when the hurricane moves over the southern and central Gulf of Mexico through Thursday, and Delta is expected to become a major hurricane again,” the NHC said.
