Its top sustained winds were clocked at 90 miles per hour (150 kph) and the storm is moving to the north-northeast at 2 miles per hour (4 kph).

Hurricane-force winds extended up to 25 miles from Ophelia's center Friday morning, and tropical-storm-force winds extended up to 90 miles, forecasters said.

Hurricane Ophelia is getting even bigger as it makes its way across the Atlantic and towards the shores of Britain.

Such a streak has happened before, but not since 1893, at a time when observers usually only noted intense storms which struck land, rather than storms that petered out at sea.

No coastal watches or warnings are in effect, though forecasters say residents of the eastern Azores should keep an eye on the storm.

The hurricane's maximum sustained winds early Thursday were near 85 miles per hour (140 kph) with some slight strengthening possible over the next day or two.

A record 10 consecutive hurricane in the Atlantic is headed toward Europe. The storm's center is forecast to continue moving east-northeast, passing near or to the southeast of the southeastern Azores Saturday and Saturday night, with only slight weakening expected over the next two days.

Experts at the U.S. Hurricane Centre confirmed gusts of 100mph are now emanating from the centre of the hurricane.
