Tropical Storm Debby Forms In Central Gulf

MIAMI (AP) — Forecasters at the National Hurricane Center in Miami say the tropical system they have been watching for days has now formed into Tropical Storm Debby.

At 5 p.m. Saturday, the storm was located roughly 220 miles south-southeast of the mouth of the Mississippi River. The system has maximum sustained winds of 50 miles per hour and is moving north at 6 miles per hour.

A tropical storm warning has been issued for the coast of Louisiana from the mouth of the Pearl River westward to Morgan City. The city of New Orleans or Lake Pontchartrain are not included in the warning.

CBS4 Meteorologist Craig Setzer says the storm isn’t expected to move toward South Florida , but could bring gusty storms to the area.
