NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) -

It’s getting busy in the tropical Atlantic.

Danny is no longer a named storm and forecasters are monitoring two tropical waves.

Remnants of Danny drift westward in the east Caribbean as two additional waves are moving through the far Atlantic.

One disturbance, currently identified as 98L, appears to be getting better organized, according to the National Hurricane Center. The disturbance is currently located midway between Africa and the Windward Islands. It has been given a 90 percent chance of developing into a tropical depression in five days.

The storm name for the 2015 Atlantic hurricane season is Erika.

A second wave is being monitored near the easternmost Cape Verde Islands. That wave has been given a 20 percent chance of development in the next five days.
