Oscar is the 15th named storm of the six-month Atlantic hurricane season that ends November 30.

At 1100 a.m. AST (1500 UTC), the center of Subtropical Storm Oscar was located near latitude 27.3 north, longitude 48.4 west.

No coastal watches of warnings are in effect.

Vardhan said farm fires alone are not to blame for the pollution problem. "We need strong commitments and actions from everyone". According to World Health Organization , one third of deaths from stroke, lung cancer and heart disease is due to air pollution.

As of Thursday morning, what is designated as Disturbance 1 was about 900 miles east-northeast of the Caribbean's northern Leeward Islands and still more than 2,000 miles from South Florida. Hurricane season runs through November 30. This storm is about 730 miles southeast of Bermuda with sustained winds of 75 mph.

Tropical Storm Oscar has formed in the Atlantic Ocean, but does not pose a threat to land.

"Environmental conditions appear conducive for further development and this system will likely become a tropical or subtropical cyclone later today or tonight while it moves generally northward over the central Atlantic".
