From BayNews9.com

MIAMI (AP) -- A tropical depression has formed in the eastern Atlantic Ocean off the coast of Africa.

The storm is located about 250 miles south-southeast of the Cape Verde Islands.

The depression is moving toward the west-northwest at about nine mph, and forecasters are expecting that to continue with some increase in speed over the next couple of days.

Maximum sustained winds are near 35 mph with higher gusts. Some strengthening was forecast, and the hurricane center said early Thursday that the depression could become a tropical storm later in the day

***Hopefully all the rain will keep Gulf tempereatures down

Bertha is expected to become a hurricane in 3 days. So far it looks like it's headed towards the Carolina coast, although this is very early yet.
