MIAMI - Tropical Storm Gert strengthened slowly on Sunday on a track toward Bermuda and forecasters said the global reinsurance hub could expect increased winds, rain and surf when the storm passed on its eastern side.

Gert, the seventh named storm of what is proving as predicted to be an active 2011 Atlantic hurricane season, formed earlier on Sunday but its forecast ocean track will keep it well away from the heavily populated US east coast.

Authorities in Bermuda, a small British overseas territory which has a population of more than 68,000 and hosts 16 of the world's top 35 reinsurers, issued a tropical storm warning.
