Tropical depression in Caribbean headed west

The Associated Press "MIAMI — The first tropical depression of the Atlantic hurricane season has formed in the Western Caribbean and is headed west, but forecasters can't yet say if it will pass over the massive oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.
Forecasters at the National Hurricane Center in Miami said early Saturday that the storm has winds of about 35 mph (55 kph) and was expected to resume a west-northwestward motion later in the day."
