MIAMI (AP) — Ingrid moved westward in the open Atlantic on Sunday, and people in the northern Leeward Islands were told to keep an eye on the tropical depression.

Maximum sustained winds were near 35 mph with higher gusts, and forecasters don’t expect it to strenghten significantly in the next day.

At 10 a.m., Ingrid’s center was about 260 miles east of the Leeward Islands.

The depression was moving west near 12 mph and was expected to turn to the west-northwest in the next 24 hours, according to the National Hurricane Center.

On Thursday, Ingrid became the ninth storm of the Atlantic hurricane season, which runs from June 1 to Nov. 30. Ingrid was downgraded to a depression after weakening Saturday.
