With 2007 declared the Hurricane Year, the Atlantic hurricane season is in its peak starting from June 1 and already through witnessing eight tropical storms, is still to see more with its ending till November 30.

The Atlantic’s ninth storm is already in the making!

Yes, Tropical Storm Ingrid has formed on Thursday in the Atlantic Ocean east of the Caribbean islands, the U.S. National Hurricane Center informed.

With the Ingrid moving west-northwest at about nine kilometers (six miles) per hour, the center said in a bulletin at 11 pm Thursday (0300 GMT Friday),

A small increase in strength is possible during the next 24 hours.

According to the Centre, the top sustained winds were near 40 mph (65 kph) with the gusts blowing higher. The tropical storm Ingrid force winds to extend outward up to 50 miles from the center.

Located about 840 miles east of the lesser Antilles, the storm was headed in the general direction of the northeastern Caribbean. So, its time for people falling in its path need to gear up, as it may lash across land in a few days!
