Tropical Storm Danny has strengthened into the first hurricane of 2015 Atlantic hurricane season, the National Hurricane Center in Miami, Florida announced Thursday morning.

Hurricane Danny, as it is now known, is currently located hundreds of miles east of the Barbados and north of Brazil, with a track headed west-northwest at 12 miles per hour. It’s expected to make landfall over Grenada, Saint Lucia, Dominica and Montserrat late Sunday night.

It will likely pass over Puerto Rico by Tuesday.
