Tropical Storm Chris forms over Atlantic Ocean

MIAMI | Tue Jun 19, 2012 5:42pm EDT

(Reuters) - Tropical Storm Chris formed over the open Atlantic Ocean on Tuesday and posed no threat to land, the Miami-based U.S. National Hurricane Center said.

Chris, the third cyclone of 2012 Atlantic hurricane season, swirled to life 560 miles south-southwest of Cape Race, Newfoundland, and had top sustained winds of 45 miles per hour, the hurricane center said.


The hurricane center said that only twice before Chris, in 1887 and 1959, had the third storm of the Atlantic season formed earlier than June 19.
