The storm also threatened to become the first November hurricane to make U.S. landfall in half a century and could be in southern Florida in 72 hours, National Hurricane Center forecaster Bob Case said in Coral Gables, Fla. The storm was last reported 75 miles east of Grand Turk Island, about 700 miles east-southeast of Miami.
