Tropical Storm Meanders Off Florida, Pacific System Grows

Tropical Storm Alberto churned off the Florida-Georgia coast with 40 mile-an-hour (64 kilometer-an-hour) winds on a course expected to keep it away from land and safely at sea, the National Hurricane Center said.

A tropical depression, the second in a week, about 520 miles south of Acapulco far off the Mexico-Guatemala coast is moving westward at 6 miles an hour and is expected to intensify from 35 mph winds to tropical-storm status later in the day, the NHC said in a website advisory.
