MIAMI — Forecasters say Tropical Storm Dorian is moving across the eastern Atlantic and remains far from land.

The storm's maximum sustained winds Wednesday were near 50 mph (85 kph). The U.S. National Hurricane Center in Miami says it is moving quickly across the Atlantic at 20 mph (32 kph).

The storm is centered about 500 miles (805 kilometers) west of the Cape Verde Islands, off the coast of west Africa. Dorian could get a bit stronger Wednesday, though it is forecast to weaken some on Thursday as it moves over cooler water.
