First trop­i­cal de­pres­sion forms in At­lantic

The Chatham Daily News - - WORLD NEWS -

MI­AMI — The first trop­i­cal de­pres­sion of the At­lantic sea­son has formed far from land. Hur­ri­cane sea­son runs from June 1 to Nov. 30, but last year two storms formed be­fore the of­fi­cial start of the sea­son. The de­pres­sion is lo­cated about half­way be­tween Ber­muda and the Azores and does not pose a threat to land. The sys­tem is ex­pected to dis­si­pate Thurs­day night or Fri­day. It has winds of about 56 km/h. The first At­lantic storm of 2016 was Hur­ri­cane Alex, which made an un­sea­son­able de­but in Jan­uary over the far east­ern At­lantic. Trop­i­cal Storm Bon­nie formed in May 2016 off the South Carolina coast.
