"MIAMI (AP) Bill became a major hurricane far out in the Atlantic on Tuesday, with winds whipping near 125 mph, and forecasters say it could strengthen even further.
"The National Hurricane Center said people in the Leeward Islands should monitor Bill's progress, though the core of the dangerous storm was expected to pass well northwest of the islands late Wednesday and early Thursday.
"Hurricane hunter planes found that Bill, the first hurricane of the Atlantic season, had strengthened to a Category 3 storm Tuesday night."
