Igor is a Category 4 storm with maximum sustained winds near 150 mph. The forecast track Monday showed it staying well south of Bermuda for the next five days. It's too early to tell if it might threaten land beyond that.

Also in the Atlantic, Tropical Storm Julia is moving west, away from the southern Cape Verde Islands. Julia's maximum sustained winds were near 50 mph and it could soon become a hurricane.

Officials issued a tropical storm warning for parts of the Cape Verde Islands including Maio, Sao Tiago, Fogo and Brava.
