Last Minute News TS Ana forms in Atlantic Ocean

-A A +A
By Kellie Parkin

 National Hurricane Center in Miami announced early this morning the formation of the first named storm of the 2009 Atlantic Hurricane Season.

As of 11 a.m. Saturday, Tropical Storm Ana was moving west at 16 mph with maximum sustained winds of 40 mph. It was located approximately 920 miles east of the Leeward Islands, the chain of islands southeast of Puerto Rico, latitude 14.3 north and longitude 48.3 west.

The path of the NHC’s forecasted cone of uncertainty shows that TS Ana is expected to be near Puerto Rico Monday evening or Tuesday morning if current speed is maintained.

The five-day potential storm track includes the possibility of landfall in Cuba or the Bahamas on Wednesday, and Florida’s east coast Thursday. The cone of uncertainty shows TS Ana could also head up the Atlantic Coast, or into the Gulf of Mexico where it could potentially gather strength from the warmer water temperatures.

Currently forecasters do not expect TS Ana do develop into a hurricane, instead maintaining tropical storm strength winds (sustained 39-73 mph).
