Miami, Fla. Erin has weakened to a tropical depression in the eastern Atlantic and poses no threat to land.

The storm's maximum sustained winds early Friday were 35 mph, with higher gusts.

Erin is centered about 540 miles (870 kilometers) west of the Cape Verde Islands and is moving northwest at 17 mph (28 kph) with a gradual decrease in speed forecast for the next day or so.

The U.S. National Hurricane Center in Miami says the storm is expected to change little in strength over the next two days.
