Ophelia is moving slowly northeast through the Atlantic at 3mph.

University of Miami hurricane researcher Brian McNoldy says Ophelia is the 10th straight tropical storm to become a hurricane in an Atlantic season.

On average, according to the National Hurricane Center, one hurricane forms in October. However, the west coast could see gusts of up to 70mph when Ophelia hits.

A hurricane is headed for the United Kingdom - and it's due to hit on the 30-year anniversary of the 1987 Great Storm.

Ophelia is also expected to hit the United Kingdom next week.
