At 11 p.m. EDT on August 28, Tropical Depression 16E strengthened into a tropical storm and was renamed Norman.

Hurricane and tropical cyclone season continues and the peak of tropical season will be arriving soon.

Located about 2,573 miles west of Hilo, Norman was packing maximum sustained winds of 65 mph while moving west-northwest at 10 mph at 5 a.m., according to the National Hurricane Center.
