MIAMI -- Erin is a tropical storm again in the eastern Atlantic although it still poses no threat to land.

The storm’s maximum sustained winds Saturday morning were 40 mph, with higher gusts.

Erin is centered about 790 miles west-northwest of the Cape Verde Islands and is moving northwest at 15 mph, with a gradual decrease in speed forecast for the next day or so.

The U.S. National Hurricane Center in Miami said late Friday that Erin, which had earlier weakened into a tropical depression, had regained strength and was once again a tropical storm.. Forecaster say the storm is not expected to change much in strength over the next two days.
