Tropical Storm Sam forms, expected to develop into a major hurricane

Tropical Storm Sam has formed in the Atlantic, and weather experts say it will develop into a major hurricane by the end of the week.

Thursday morning, Sam became the 18th named storm of the 2021 Atlantic Hurricane Season. It is churning about 1,750 miles east, southeast of the Northern Leeward Islands, with wind speeds of 50 miles per hour.

It is too early to tell if the storm will impact the United States, but anyone living in a hurricane-prone region needs to follow the weather situation.
