Caribbean, Southeast U.S. keeping watchful eye on storms

MIAMI -- Tropical storm Charley formed in the Caribbean on Tuesday and moved toward Jamaica as Bonnie, another tropical storm, moved through the Gulf of Mexico.

Charley was 350 miles southeast of Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, with wind gusts of 45 mph and was headed west-northwest at 24 mph. Jamaica issued a tropical storm watch.

Meanwhile, Bonnies location was approximately 350 miles southwest of the mouth of the Mississippi River and was expected to turn north with a possible landfall anywhere from Louisiana to the Florida Panhandle.

Bonnie and Charley are the second and third named storms of the Atlantic hurricane season, which runs through Nov. 30.
