Tropical Storm Kirk was accelerating westward over the eastern tropical Atlantic as Subtropical Storm Leslie formed Sunday, the National Hurricane Center said.

Scientists with the First Street Foundation estimate an additional 11,000 homes felt the effects of the storm surge, compared to the potential effects if that same size storm hit in 1970.

Meanwhile, way out in the Central Atlantic where it's no threat to land, Subtropical Storm Leslie is spinning south at 7 miles per hour and blowing winds of 40 miles per hour, according to the center's Monday afternoon update.

Meanwhile, Subtropical Storm Leslie is no threat to land.

"Leslie is forecast to strengthen when it merges with a frontal system in two or three days, " the hurricane center said. It is 1,300 miles west of the Azores and drifting around at 6 mph.

The storm has maximum sustained winds of 40 miles per hour (65 kph) and is moving west at 21 miles per hour (34 kph).

Kirk, losing some structure, is now a tropical depression as it meanders west. The flooding is expected to start Tuesday near parts of the Pee Dee and Waccamaw rivers.

The remnants of Kirk are forecast to continue on a westerly course over the next few days. This low, called Invest 98 for now, has been fighting a lot of wind shear, so development chances only sit at 30 percent. It left at least 43 people dead across North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia.

The National Hurricane Center in Miami said Sunday morning that Leslie is expected to be short-lived.

Firefighters from the Penderlea Fire Department posted video of the fish being hosed off the Interstate 40.
