         Tropical Storm Karen started as a storm in the Atlantic but then downgraded to a tropical depression with winds of 35 miles per hour. It is expected to leave the Atlantic with winds of 30 miles per hour. Although this is a good sign, an upcoming storm called Lorenzo has gained more strength and is expected to overpower storm Karen with a category 4 or 5 wind strength.

          Storm Lorenzo moved out 1,000 miles west to Cabo Verde Islands and will most likely go into the northwest by Sunday. With this being said, Karen could have the possibility of looping back to the Bahamas and Florida, which were the places that were already hit by hurricane Dorian. After Karen hit Puerto Rico, it is believed to head east and complete a clockwise loop to hit the Bahamas and Florida. This could make the damage left in these areas worse than it was before.
