Storm Alert: Karl and Lisa Active in Atlantic



Both the tropical storms Karl and Lisa remain active and are moving across the Atlantic Ocean, both staying away from U.S interests, though.  But keep an eye on Karl before travelling to Bermuda.

Tropical depression 13 has strengthened into tropical storm Lisa over the eastern tropical Atlantic, the U.S. National Hurricane Center said on Tuesday.

Lisa, the 12th named storm of the 2016 Atlantic hurricane season, was located about 430 miles (690 kilometers) west of the Cape Verde Islands with maximum sustained winds of 40 miles per hour (65 kmph), the Miami-based weather forecaster said.

Lisa could strengthen further in the next 48 hours, the NHC added.

Tropical Storm Karl’s maximum sustained winds were holding steady at 40 mph (65 kph) and the storm was moving westward at 14 mph (20 kph) late Tuesday afternoon, the Hurricane Center said.  Karl was centered about 480 miles (770 kilometers) northeast of the Leeward Islands and 1,030 miles (1,660 kilometers) southeast of Bermuda.  Some strengthening is expected during the next couple of days.

In the Pacific, former Tropical Storm Paine has weakened to a tropical depression and was expected to become a remnant low Tuesday night.
