MIAMI - Tropical Storm Franklin formed in the Atlantic Ocean northeast of Bermuda on Saturday and was moving over open seas where it posed no threat to land, forecasters at the US National Hurricane Center said.

The storm had top winds of 65 km per hour and could strengthen slightly before dissipating by Monday, the forecasters said.

Franklin was about 580 km northeast of Bermuda and was moving northeast away from the British island and away from the United States.

Forecasters were also keeping watch over several other tropical disturbances in the Atlantic as the June-through-November hurricane season moved into its traditionally most active period.
