14th tropical depression forms in Atlantic
MIAMI — Forecasters say a tropical depression has formed in the Atlantic on the heels of two hurricanes and is likely to become the next named storm.
The National Hurricane Center said late Monday that the 14th depression of the season was more than 500 miles (805 kilometers) from the Cape Verde Islands off the coast of Africa. It has winds of 35 mph (55 kph) and is moving north at 6 mph (9 kph).
The storm is far out in the Atlantic and if it strengthens enough, it will be named Tropical Storm Lisa. It would be the 12th named storm this season.
It comes soon after Hurricane Karl killed 16 in southern Mexico and Hurricane Igor that was still spinning after killing three people when it lashed Bermuda.
