Bertha Weakens Back to Tropical Storm



    Tropical Storm Bertha as of 5 a.m. Tuesday.

    Less than a day after it became a hurricane, Bertha weakened back to a tropical storm as it continued to head north out over the Atlantic Tuesday.

    Bertha had maximum sustained winds of 65 mph as it moved at 22 mph about 475 miles west of Bermuda, forecasters at the National Hurricane Center in Miami said.

    There were no coastal watches or warnings in effect and no hazards affecting land.

    Bertha became the second hurricane of the 2014 Atlantic Hurricane Season Monday. It's expected to continue to weaken over the next 48 hours as it stays away from the east coast.
