MIAMI -- Forecasters say Nadine has blown up into a hurricane for a second time as it roams the eastern Atlantic.

The U.S. National Hurricane Center in Miami said Nadine was 730 miles (1,175 kilometers) southwest of the Azores islands on Friday morning, with top sustained winds of 75 mph (120 kph).

It was moving northwest at 8 mph (13 kph). Nadine has been swirling around the Atlantic for more than two weeks since becoming a tropical storm Sept. 11.

No coastal watches or warnings are in effect.

In the Pacific, a tropical storm warning has been issued for the west coast of mainland Mexico from La Cruz north to Huatabampo for Tropical Storm Norman.

The storm with sustained winds of 45 mph (75 kph) is moving quickly northward toward the coast.
