Fourteen named storms have formed in the Atlantic so far this year, in a hurricane season just hitting its stride, according to Dennis Feltgen of the National Hurricane Center.
Tropical storm Lee is expected to form from what is now tropical depression 13. It could hit the Gulf coast over Labor Day weekend. Warnings for tropical storm Lee stretch from Sabine Pass, Texas, to Pascagoula, Miss.
Tropical storm Katia now a hurricane: The National Hurricane Center in Miami cautioned the public — still recovering along parts of the East Coast from Irene — not to stress over the storm.
Hurricane forecasters now have two storms to watch: Hurricane Katia could be on its way to becoming a category 3 storm, while a storm system in the Gulf could organize into tropical storm Lee within 48 hours.
