New Tropical Depression in Caribbean

The seventh tropical depression, which may soon be Tropical Storm Gustav, of the Atlantic hurricane season, has formed in the central Caribbean and is heading for the Dominican Republic and Haiti.

The National Hurricane Center predicts a gradual decrease in speed over the next day or two. Forecasters say the center of the storm will be moving near or over southwestern Haiti on Tuesday.

The Dominican Republic and Haiti have both issued tropical storm warnings for the southern and western parts of the island shared by the two countries.
