CAPE HATTERAS, N.C. (WGHP) — The second named storm of this year’s hurricane season, Tropical Storm Bill, has formed far off the North Carolina coast.

Bill had maximum sustained winds of 45 mph and was moving to the northeast at 23 mph.

The storm was expected to continue far off the Atlantic seaboard and not pose any immediate threat to land despite the possibility of some rough seas along the U.S. Northeast coast.
