Tropical Storm Chris Forms Over Atlantic Ocean

Tropical Storm Chris formed over the open Atlantic Ocean on Tuesday and posed no threat to land, the Miami-based U.S. National Hurricane Center said.

Chris, the third cyclone of 2012 Atlantic hurricane season, swirled to life 560 miles south-southwest of Cape Race, Newfoundland, and had top sustained winds of 45 miles per hour, the hurricane center said.

It said Chris was moving east and was expected to turn north over the next couple of days, on a course that would keep it well away from land.
