    Hanna is the eighth tropical storm registered in the Atlantic this season, following Gonzalo that formed on Wednesday, and is expected to affect the Southern Windward Islands by Saturday.

    The Gulf depression has strengthened into tropical storm Hanna, the National Hurricane Centre said on late Thursday.

    Heavy rains are likely over portions of Texas this weekend, it added, where a tropical storm watch has been issued.

    Hanna was bringing winds of 65 kilometres (40 miles) and was located about 620 kilometres (385 miles) east-southeast of Port O'Connor in Texas.

    The NHC earlier warned that rains caused by the storm could result in flash flooding and minor river flooding in the area.
