Hurricane Earl swirled swiftly to life southeast of Bermuda, packing winds of 75 m.p.h. in the open Atlantic but posing little threat to land. "With the normal westerlies that you get at high latitudes, the jet stream carries it right out to sea," forecaster Gil Clark said. Thursday evening, the storm center was about 800 miles southeast of Bermuda and was moving north-northwest at 12 m.p.h., according to the National Hurricane Center in Coral Gables, Fla.
