Tropical Storm 'Florence' forms in the eastern Atlantic Ocean early Saturday morning

Tropical Storm Florence, which formed off the African coast on Saturday morning, is heading to the open eastern Atlantic Ocean, the National Hurricane Center announced. It is expected to continue to move west and should move away from the islands by Saturday afternoon.

The storm is expected to continue on its current path while slowly intensifying for the next 48 hours, then curve a little more to the northwest, keeping the storm out to sea.
