Tropical Storm Andrea forms
Tropical Storm Andrea was swirling over the east-central Gulf, about 310 miles (500 km) southwest of Tampa, Florida, and packing maximum sustained winds of 40 miles per hour (64 kph), the Miami-based National Hurricane Center said.
Andrea, which is not expected to strengthen into a hurricane, was forecast to make landfall over northwest Florida late on Thursday before moving over southeastern Georgia and eastern South Carolina, the hurricane center said.
Andrea could also spawn isolated tornadoes across Florida on Wednesday night and Thursday, the hurricane center said.
The average Atlantic season, which starts June 1 and runs through November, brings 12 tropical storms and six hurricanes, including three major hurricanes.
