Hurricane Isaac is not expected to have any impact on the U.S. as it drifts out further into the Atlantic Ocean, said forecasters.

Tropical Depression Nine strengthened into Tropical Storm Isaac Thursday, and then became a hurricane shortly thereafter. The storm now has sustained winds of 80 miles per hour and is currently located 275 miles north-northeast of Bermuda.

National Hurricane Center forecasters say the storm's projected track has it remaining out in the Atlantic Ocean.

Isaac's hurricane force winds extend outward up to 40 miles. The storm is only moving at about nine miles per hour.

Hurricane Isaac is the ninth named storm in the 2006 Atlantic Hurricane Season.
