Tropical storm warnings have been issued for Puerto Rico, the U.S. and British Virgin Islands and other nearby islands as Tropical Storm Bertha approaches the Caribbean.

But Florida is not expected to have to deal with Bertha, as the National Hurricane Center forecasts it to remain well to our east, before curving towards the northeast early next week. 
The storm's maximum sustained winds early Friday were near 45 mph with no significant change in strength expected over the next two days.

At 5 a.m., Bertha was centered about 170 miles east of Barbados and is moving west-northwest near 20 mph.
