"Trio of Storms Swirls in Atlantic and Caribbean"

"MIAMI -- A trio of potentially dangerous storms swirled over the Atlantic Ocean on Tuesday, as Tropical Storm Karl formed in the Caribbean on a path that could take it over oil-production facilities in Mexico's Bay of Campeche.

The threat posed by Karl, which forecasters say will enter the oil-rich Gulf of Mexico, came as Tropical Storm Julia grew in the far eastern Atlantic into the fifth hurricane of the Atlantic storm season and Hurricane Igor remained a dangerous Category 4 storm.

Neither hurricane posed an immediate threat to land or energy interests, but Igor could threaten Bermuda by the weekend."
