Tropical Storm Bill swirls, briefly, far out at seaTuesday, June 15, 2021
MIAMI, United States (AP) — The second named storm of this year's hurricane season, Tropical Storm Bill, strengthened slightly off the US eastern seaboard on Tuesday, but not for long. It was expected to dissipate on Wednesday over colder water as it approaches the coast of Nova Scotia.
The National Hurricane Center in Miami said that Bill, which became a storm late Monday, was swirling about 240 miles (385 kilometres) off Nantucket, Massachusetts.
Bill had maximum sustained winds of 50 mph (85 kph) and was moving to the northeast at 31 mph (50 kph), on a path that doesn't pose any immediate threat to land.
