MIAMI — Forecasters say a tropical depression has formed in the central Atlantic Ocean but is nowhere near land.

The National Hurricane Center in Miami said late Saturday that the depression has maximum sustained winds of 35 mph (55 kph) and that it's expected to strengthen into a tropical storm on Sunday.

The storm is about 1,010 miles (1,625 kilometers) east-southeast of Bermuda and is moving north at about 9 mph (15 kph).
