MIAMI (AP) -- Tropical Storm Gabrielle has re-formed in the Atlantic and is approaching Bermuda.

The storm's maximum sustained winds early Tuesday are near 40 mph (65 kph) with some strengthening forecast over the next two days.

A tropical storm warning has been issued for Bermuda, where Gabrielle is expected to bring a storm surge of 2 to 3 feet above normal tide levels. The U.S. National Hurricane Center says the storm is expected to pass over or near Bermuda by Wednesday morning.

The tropical storm is centered about 165 miles (265 kilometers) south of Bermuda and is moving north near 14 mph (22 kph).

Farther east over the Atlantic, Tropical Storm Humberto's maximum sustained winds have increased to near 65 mph (100 kph) and the storm is expected to become a hurricane later in the day.


Associated Press Release

MIAMI (AP) -- Tropical Storm Gabrielle has formed south of Puerto Rico, resulting in storm warnings.

Forecasters at the U.S. National Hurricane Center in Miami said late Wednesday that Gabrielle was centered about 70 miles (113 kilometers) south of Ponce, Puerto Rico.

Maximum sustained winds were 40 mph (64 kph). It was moving to the northwest at 8 mph (13 kph).

Tropical storm warnings were issued for Puerto Rico and parts of the Dominican Republic, from Cabo Engano to Cabo Frances Viejo. It was expected to bring 3 to 6 inches of rain to parts of Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands and eastern portions of the Dominican Republic.

Forecasters expect the storm's center to pass between the islands on Thursday and eventually curve back to the northeast away from the U.S. mainland. However, storm paths are difficult to predict accurately days in advance.


The seventh tropical depression of the 2013 Atlantic Hurricane Season formed late Wednesday afternoon in the northeastern Caribbean. It may become Tropical Storm Gabrielle as it approaches Puerto Rico, but will not affect the mainland U.S.
