Tropical depression forms west of Jamaica

JamaicaObserver.com: "AT 10:00 am the centre of the 16th tropical depression of the 2010 Atlantic Hurriane Season was located near latitude 20.6 degrees north and longitude 82.5 degrees west or about 290 kilometres south of Havana, Cuba.
The Meteoreological Service of Jamaica reports that the depression is moving toward the north-northeast near 17 kilometres per hour. A generally north-northeastward motion with some increase in forward speed is expected over the next day or two. On the forecast track, the centre of the tropical cyclone will cross Cuba tonight and be near southeastern Florida by tomorrow afternoon. However, in this case, most of the strong winds and heavy rains are occurring a couple hundred miles to the east and southeast of the centre."
