MIAMI (AP) — Tropical Storm Gaston is strengthening as it moves over the far eastern Atlantic.

The storm's maximum sustained winds had increased Tuesday to 65 mph (100 kph). The U.S. National Hurricane Center says Gaston is expected to become a hurricane by Wednesday.

Gaston is centered about 765 miles (1,230 kilometers) west of the southernmost Cabo Verde Islands and is moving west-northwest at 18 mph (30 kph).

The storm is expected to turn toward the northwest and decrease in forward speed in the next couple of days.
