MIAMI -

Humberto has strengthened to a Category 1 hurricane far out in the Atlantic, becoming the first hurricane of the Atlantic season.

Humberto's maximum sustained winds early Wednesday are near 75 mph. The U.S. National Hurricane Center says the hurricane could gain more strength before a weakening trend likely starts on Thursday.

Humberto is centered about 310 miles west-northwest of the southernmost Cape Verde Islands and is moving north-northwest near 8 mph.

Meanwhile, Tropical Storm Gabrielle is weakening as it moves away from Bermuda after hitting the wealthy British territory with wind, rain and rough surf. Gabrielle's maximum sustained winds decreased to near 50 mph.
