MIAMI (AP) - Forecasters say Tropical Storm Michael has formed over the eastern Atlantic Ocean but does not pose a threat to land.
The U.S. National Hurricane Center said Tuesday morning that Michael was moving slowly toward the north-northwest at about 5 mph (8 kph). Current models showed it staying well out to sea over the next few days.
Michael had maximum sustained winds of 40 mph (65 kph). It was 1,220 miles (1,963 kilometers) southwest of the Azores.
Meanwhile, Tropical Storm Leslie was moving very slowly more than 500 miles (805 kilometers) south of Bermuda. That storm's maximum sustained winds Tuesday were near 65 mph (100 kph).
In the Pacific, Tropical Depression John was moving to the northwest more than 400 miles (645 kilometers) off the coast of Baja California.
