Weather officials are now tracking two tropical storms, but neither system will threaten Florida.

Tropical Storm Gabrielle has re-formed in the Atlantic and is approaching Bermuda.

The storm's maximum sustained winds as of 11 p.m. Tuesday were 60 mph with little change in strength forecast over the next two days.

A tropical storm warning has been issued for Bermuda, where Gabrielle is expected to bring a storm surge of 2 to 3 feet above normal tide levels.

The center of the tropical storm has just passed Bermuda and is moving north near 8 mph.

Farther east over the Atlantic, Tropical Storm Humberto's maximum sustained winds have increased to 70 mph and the storm is expected to become a hurricane on Wednesday.

Humberto is expected to steer north and stay in the open Atlantic.
