After reaching winds sustained at 115 mph Edouard became the first major hurricane and 5th named tropical system of the 2014 Atlantic Hurricane season, 4 of which have been Hurricanes. Edouard which luckily has no direct impact to land has been downgraded to a Tropical Storm as of 5 PM Thursday evening.
