Hurricane Edouard has grown to become the Atlantic’s first major hurricane since Hurricane Sandy two years ago. But the latest is that Edouard isn’t a threat to the East coast, according to NBC News.
Edouard is the fifth named hurricane of the 2014 hurricane season and reached category 3 status Tuesday morning.

According to the Weather Channel the storm is expected to head northeast and then continue east throughout the week, heading away from the East coast of the United States. The category 3 hurricane is expected to die down once it hits a cold front over the Atlantic.
Hurricane Sandy was issued a category 3 status back in 2012. Sandy was the second deadliest hurricane in the country’s history with only Katrina ahead of it.
