A sub-tropical storm in the Atlantic was tonight upgraded to a storm.

Subtropical Storm Oscar formed Saturday morning in the Atlantic.

TS Oscar was said to be about 927 miles east south east of Bermuda at midnight. Oscar already packs sustained winds around 60 miles per hour.

Oscar is the eighth hurricane in the Atlantic this season, and is located approximately 725 miles southeast of Bermuda in the open waters of the Atlantic.

Game 5 is Sunday at Dodger Stadium, where the Red Sox can close out a spectacular season with their fourth title in 15 years. Roberts obviously knew he'd have questions to answer regarding his decision and the Dodgers soul-crushing loss.

No coastal watches of warnings are in effect. "Near or just beyond 96 hours, the shear is forecast to increase substantially and Oscar should begin to make the transition to an extratropical cyclone". Hurricane season runs through November 30. Then through the middle of the week, the storm is expected to accelerate quickly toward the northeast and drop to a tropical storm, likely by Thursday night. The storm is expected to become a hurricane Sunday as its track curves toward the North Atlantic, the National Hurricane said.

Thirty-five people have died in Florida and 10 died in other states.

The storm also hit Georgia, the Carolinas, and Virginia.
