Tropical Storm Ike Develops in the Atlantic
(September 2, 5:15 p.m. EDT) -- Tropical Storm Ike continues to strengthen in the Atlantic Ocean and, according to the National Hurricane Center, could become a hurricane tonight or on Wednesday. Ike is currently located over 1,000 miles east of the Leeward Islands and is moving toward the west at around 17 miles per hour with maximum sustained wind speeds of nearly 65 m.p.h.

Ike is still too far away to affect any cruise itineraries, but forecasters predict that it could impact the Eastern Caribbean and the Bahamas later this week. Stay tuned to Cruise Critic's Hurricane Zone for the latest information on any cruise travel changes.
