Tropical Storm Erin forms in eastern Atlantic

- Post Newsweek
Tropical Storm Erin, the fifth named storm of the 2013 Atlantic hurricane season, has formed west-southwest of the southern Cape Verde Islands in the far east Atlantic Ocean, the U.S. National Hurricane Center said on Thursday.

Erin was swirling 65 miles (100 km) west-southwest of Brava in the Cape Verde Islands, and packing maximum sustained winds of 40 miles per hour (65 kph), the Miami-based NHC said. 

The government of the Cape Verde Islands has issued a tropical storm warning for the southern Cape Verde Islands of Maio, Santiago, Fogo and Brava.
The storm is expected to become Tropical Storm Erin later today. The system was expected to bring 2 to 4 inches of rain over the southern portion of the islands.
