    Another tropical storm, dubbed Lorenzo, formed earlier on Monday in the far eastern Atlantic near the Cape Verde Islands off Africa, according to the US National Hurricane Centre (NHC).

    The NHC forecast that Lorenzo would reach hurricane strength by Tuesday night.

    According to the NHC, Karen, the 11th named storm of the 2019 Atlantic hurricane season, formed over the last weekend east of the Lesser Antilles. Notably, to the north of Karen, a separate tropical storm named Jerry was on track to reach Bermuda by Tuesday night or Wednesday morning, the NHC said earlier.

    ​Earlier in September, Hurricane Dorian devastated the islands of Grand Bahama and Abaco, where estimated 70,000 people were left homeless in the aftermath. The disaster also killed several dozen people.
