Katia gaining strength, could become a hurricane
NHC: Tropical Storm Katia gaining strength in the Atlantic, could soon become a hurricane
By The Associated Press

MIAMI (AP) ' Tropical Storm Katia (KAH'-tee-yah) is gaining strength as it moves quickly across the Atlantic and could become a hurricane later in the day.

Early Wednesday, Katia's maximum sustained winds are near 65 mph (100 kph) with additional strengthening expected. The storm's forecast track shows it could become a major hurricane over the weekend.

Katia is centered about 985 miles (1,585 kilometers) west of the southernmost Cape Verde Islands and is moving west-northwest near 21 mph (33 kph).

The storm's name replaces Katrina in the rotating storm roster because of the catastrophic damage from the 2005 storm that devastated New Orleans.
