Tropical Depression Nine likely to become a tropical storm: NHC

(Reuters) - Tropical Depression Nine, headed toward Florida gulf coast, is expected to become a tropical storm later on Wednesday, U.S. National Hurricane Center said.

The system, located about 420 miles (675 KM) west south-west of Tampa Florida with maximum sustained winds of 35 miles per hour (55 kmph), could be near hurricane strength by the time landfall occurs, the NHC added.
