Tropical Storm Dorian gathering strength over the Atlantic

Forecasters say the fourth tropical storm of the Atlantic hurricane season has strengthened as it moves toward the Lesser Antilles. The U.S. National Hurricane Center (NHC) said Sunday that Tropical Storm Dorian could intensify to near hurricane strength over the eastern Caribbean Sea by Tuesday.

As of 8 p.m. EDT Sunday, Dorian’s center was located about 335 miles east-southeast of Barbados and was moving westward at 14 mph. Maximum sustained winds have remained near 50 mph since earlier Sunday. Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 35 miles from the center of the storm.

A tropical storm warning is in effect for Barbados, St. Lucia, St. Vincent and the Grenadines. A tropical storm watch was issued for Grenada and its dependencies, as well as for Martinique.
