New Storm Looms In Atlantic, But Future Track Unknown
MIAMI (AP) - A tropical depression far out in the Atlantic is forecast to become a hurricane this week, but it's too early to know if it'll strike the U.S. or anywhere else.
The depression is forecast to become Tropical Storm Katia _ the name that replaced Katrina in the rotating storm roster because of the catastrophic damage in Katrina's wake in 2005.
The U.S, National Hurricane Center in Miami said Monday the depression south of the Cape Verde Islands could become a tropical storm later Monday and could reach hurricane strength Thursday,
still far out in the Atlantic.
Hurricane Center spokesman Dennis Feltgen said it's too early to know if it would hit the U.S. and it will be more than a week before the system reaches the middle Atlantic.
