Forecasters say Hurricane Rafael has formed in the Atlantic Ocean south of Bermuda.

The U.S. Hurricane Center said Monday night that Rafael’s top sustained winds had risen to near 120 kph, making it the ninth hurricane of the Atlantic season.

The Canadian Hurricane Centre says the storm will likely have an impact on eastern Newfoundland by late Wednesday with heavy rain but the wind threat is descreasing since the current track is putting Rafael far offshore.
