MIAMI Tropical Storm Hanna, the eighth named storm in the Atlantic hurricane season, is strengthening about 100 miles from the Bahamas.

Long-term projections show the storm could come ashore along the border of Georgia and South Carolina late in the week.

At 5:00 a.m. EDT, Hannah was north of the Caicos Islands, drifting slowly westward at 2 mph. Forecasters say the center of Hannah is expected travel over or near the southeastern Bahamas during the next day or two.

Hannah's maximum sustained winds are near 50 mph.
