Tropical Storm Karen forms off western Cuba

Havana, Oct 3, (RHC), – Tropical Storm Karen has formed in the southeastern portion of the Gulf of Mexico, the U.S. National Hurricane Center said Thursday.

The Miami-based weather service said it has discovered a low pressure area between Cuba and Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula which is producing winds of 96 kph (60 mph).

As the storm moves north-northwestward up the Mexican coast, heavy rains could affect portions of Cuba and the Yucatan Peninsula during the next day or two, the hurricane center said.

The storm has a high chance -- "near 100 percent" -- of becoming a hurricane or cyclone in the next two days, it added.

In the central Atlantic Ocean, Tropical Depression Jerry has sustained winds of 35 mph as it moves northwest at 9 mph.
