Tropical Storm Humberto forms east of battered Bahamas

More than a week after Dorian smashed thousands of homes on the country's Grand Bahama and Abaco islands, the death toll stood at 50 and was expected to rise, with search-and-rescue crews still making their way through the ruins.

On Saturday, Humberto was slowly moving northwest and gaining strength, but expected to turn "sharply" northeast Sunday night and move away from the USA, the National Hurricane Center's 5 a.m. Saturday forecast said.

The storm, which is being called "Potential Tropical Cyclone No. 9", is swirling in the central Bahamas.

A strengthening tropical storm has set its sights on the Dorian-battered Bahamas as it churns its way westward, brings with it sustained 40 miles per hour winds.

Forecasters say the system could become a tropical storm within the next day or two.

"We're seeing plastic tarps go out all over the islands, and that's extremely important because now you've got another tropical storm coming", said Ken Isaacs, vice president of programs for USA relief organization Samaritan's Purse.

An early Saturday morning forecast of Tropical Storm Humberto proved hopeful for Beaufort County.

A tropical depression near the Bahamas has strengthened into Tropical Storm Humberto.

At least eight of those killed have been confirmed to be South Africans and four others are believed to be foreign nationals. Logistics for the evacuation will be provided by Air Peace , a Nigerian airline which has offered to airlift Nigerians .

It is then expected to move north, offshore from Florida and then away from the USA mainland, the NHC said.

The disturbance was stationary Friday afternoon about 280 miles east southeast of Freeport, Grand Bahama with 30 mph sustained winds.

The storm then could strike Florida on Saturday as a tropical storm.

Storm surge: this system is not expected to product significant storm surge in the northwest Bahamas.

A five-day forecast from the NHC has the disturbance gaining Category 1 hurricane strength far off the coast of Georgia early next week.

The announcement that yet another storm would lash the Bahamas came as UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres warned of the dangers of climate change during a visit to the hurricane-battered archipelago.

The system is sitting directly over the part of the Bahamas hit hardest by Dorian.

He said "climate change is running faster than we are, and we need to have a much more ambitious approach in what we do in order to defeat climate change". He said he's seeking commitments to carbon neutrality and more ambitious plans to reduce emissions. "Fuel and water remain the biggest needs in Abaco".
