MIAMI (AP) -- Hurricane Joaquin (wah-KEEN') is weakening as it moves rapidly across the Atlantic.

The National Hurricane Center in Miami says the storm's maximum sustained winds Wednesday have decreased to 70 mph (120 kph) with additional weakening expected.

The storm is centered about 540 miles (870 kilometers) southeast of Cape Race, Newfoundland, and is moving east-northeast at 35 mph (56 kph).

It poses no threat to land, and no watches or warnings are in effect.
