Tropical Storm Epsilon strengthened into a hurricane Friday, but still poses no threat to the U.S.

Epsilon is the 14th named hurricane in the record-breaking 2005 season. The storm formed Tuesday evening in the central Atlantic. It now has winds of 75mph and is located southwest of the Azores islands.

Although the Atlantic hurricane season officially ended Wednesday, forecasters warn additional tropical storms may form in December.

This year there have been 14 hurricanes - the most since 1969 when there were 12 hurricanes.
