Hurricane Igor Leaps to Cat 4 Status Over Atlantic

Spinning westward, Hurricane Igor was categorized as a Category 4 storm last Sunday.
Although capable of causing catastrophic damage, meteorologists say it poses no threat to land or energy interests.
"Igor continues to intensify at a rapid pace," the Miami-based hurricane centre said.
The hurricane centre said Hurricane Igor was located about 1,005 miles (1,620 km) east of the Caribbean's northern Leeward Islands at 11 p.m. EDT (0300 GMT Monday).
Reuters said "The tropical cyclone was packing top sustained winds of 40 miles (65 km) per hour, the hurricane centre said."
The Miami Herald said, "Warm water would be the No. 1 factor, as long as you have warm water, you have the fuel."
