Aug 25 (Reuters) - Cristobal has become the third hurricane of the 2014 Atlantic season, the U.S. National Hurricane Center (NHC) said on Monday.

The hurricane was located about 660 miles (1,065 km) south-west of Bermuda, the NHC said.

"The maximum winds are estimated to be 75 miles per hour (120 km per hour) with higher gusts," the Miami-based weather forecasters said. (Reporting by Koustav Samanta in Bangalore; Editing by Lisa Shumaker)
