Tropical Storm Emily
Oh to have a tropical storm named for me!
Forecasters at the hurricane center were monitoring another tropical system that appeared headed for the Caribbean Sea, said Max Mayfield, director of the National Hurricane Center.
Tropical depression 5 formed off western Africa and could drift into the Caribbean within four days, Mayfield said.
If it develops into a tropical storm, its name would be Emily — the fifth named storm of the Atlantic hurricane season.
