Atlanta, GA 9/14/2007 08:59 PM GMT (WooEB)

Tropical Storm Ingrid emerged over the Atlantic Ocean on Thursday, becoming the ninth named storm of the 2007 Atlantic season. The US National Hurricane Center is tracking the storm.

With winds of up to 65 kilometers (40 miles) per hour, Ingrid was about 1,350 kilometers (840 miles) east of the Lesser Antilles, a chain of popular tourist islands.

Ingrid was moving west-northwest at about nine kilometers (six miles) per hour.

Several hours earlier, Hurricane Humberto, the third hurricane of the Atlantic season, formed over the Gulf of Mexico before striking the southeast Texas coast with category one force, the lowest strength in the five-level Saffir-Simpson scale. At least one person died. The storm has become a tropical depression.

The Atlantic hurricane season runs from June 1 to November 30.
