MIAMI (AP) — Tropical Storm Bonnie is moving away from the U.S. East Coast on Friday, a day after re-forming into a tropical system.

Bonnie's maximum sustained winds Friday were near 40 mph (65 kph). The U.S. National Hurricane Center says Bonnie has strengthened again into a tropical storm but does not threaten land.

But weakening is expected again Saturday.

The storm is centered about 335 miles (540 kilometers) east of Cape Hatteras, North Carolina, and is moving east at 12 mph (20 kph).
