Tropical Storm Erin forms in far east Atlantic - NHC

(Reuters) - Tropical Storm Erin, the fifth named storm of the 2013 Atlantic hurricane season, has formed west-southwest of the southern Cape Verde Islands in the far east Atlantic Ocean, the U.S. National Hurricane Center said on Thursday.

Erin was swirling 65 miles west-southwest of Brava in the Cape Verde Islands, and packing maximum sustained winds of 40 miles per hour, the Miami-based NHC said.
