MIAMI (AP) - Tropical Storm Chantal is racing toward the Lesser Antilles after forming in the Atlantic.

The storm's maximum sustained winds early Monday are near 40 mph (65 kph) with some strengthening expected over the next two days.

A tropical storm warning has been issued for Barbados, Dominica, St. Lucia, Martinique and Guadeloupe. A tropical storm watch is in effect for St. Vincent.
