UPDATE: Depression strengthens into Tropical Storm Danny
As meteorologists predicted Tropical Depression Number Four has strengthened into Tropical Storm Danny.
The National Hurricane Center in its 5 p.m. bulletin said Danny was located 1,595 miles east of the Windward Islands.
The center of the system was located near latitude 10.9 north , longtitude 37.5 west.
Maximum sustained winds have increased to near 40 mph and forecasters expect Danny to strengthen to become a Hurricane by Thursday.
