Tropical Storm Kirk gaining speed in Atlantic

"Meanwhile, also at 5:00 a.m this morning the center of Tropical Storm Kirk was located near 9.1N 28.0W... about 465 miles".

"An even faster westward motion across the deep tropical Atlantic Ocean is expected through Tuesday", the public advisory says. The storm has 40 miles per hour winds and is moving west at 21 miles per hour. The depression is forecast to dissipate on Sunday or early Monday.

But it is not fair to call it the remnants of Hurricane Florence, an official with the National Hurricane Center said Thursday night. Conditions could become a little more favorable for development after that, and forecasters give it a 30 percent chance of becoming a named storm - again - over the next five days.

Tropical Storm Kirk is about 400 miles south of the Cape Verde Islands.

Dozens drown in ferry capsize in Tanzania
With a surface area of 70,000 sq km (27,000 sq miles), the oval-shaped Lake Victoria is shared by Tanzania, Uganda and Kenya. The captain of a ferry which sank on Lake Victoria has been arrested as the death toll from the disaster climbed above 130.

Almost all of the North Carolina and SC coasts are included in the cone of uncertainty for the storm and the latest model Saturday night showed the storm making landfall in Wilmington.

Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 70 miles (110 km) to the north of the center of the tropical cyclone. The environment over the next few days was expected to support some further intensification. "Due to this, travel isn't recommended south of US 64", it added. Then, weakening is likely during the middle to latter part of the week.

"The surface low associated with Florence became elongated and lost definition over the mid-Atlantic states, and evolved into a much larger weather system associated with a front that moved off the east coast earlier this week".

"Along with the rest of the nation, I pray that we are not affected, and hope that the system weakens and veers away from the island chain altogether, but the DMUs and the Ministry are getting organized just in case". The complex would likely be a weak system if it does develop.
