Tropical Storm Bill swirls, briefly, far out at sea

The second named storm of this year’s hurricane season, Tropical Storm Bill, strengthened slightly off the U.S. eastern seaboard on Tuesday, but not for long

The National Hurricane Center in Miami said that Bill, which became a storm late Monday, was swirling about 240 miles (385 kilometers) 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.
