MIAMI, Florida (AP) — As Hurricane Irma continues to roar across the Caribbean on a path toward Florida, a new tropical storm has formed in the Gulf of Mexico.

Tropical Storm Katia formed early Wednesday off the coast of Mexico.

The US National Hurricane Center says Katia's maximum sustained winds are near 40 mph (65 kph) with some strengthening forecast over the next two days. But the hurricane centre says Katia is expected to stay offshore through Friday morning.

The storm is centred about 105 miles (165 kilometres) east of Tampico, Mexico, and is moving east-southeast near 2 mph (4 kph).
