Two 'tropical disturbances' have formed in the Atlantic Ocean as forecasters monitor the severity of the systems just days after Hurricane Ian reduced parts of Florida to rubble with its death toll on the rise.

Tropical Depression 12, located 440 miles west of Cabo Verde, was packing sustained winds of 35 mph and moving northwest at 12 mph at 5pm on Tuesday according to the National Hurricane Center.

Increasing upper-level winds are likely to stunt any potential growth from there with forecasters saying the depression is likely to be 'short-lived' and will dissipate late Thursday.

A second disturbance closer to Florida located east of the Windward Islands at 8pm on Tuesday evening could grow over the next few days, forecasters predict.

'Regardless of development, heavy rainfall with localized flooding, as well as gusty winds, are expected over portions of the Windward Islands, northern portions of South America, and the ABC Islands during the next couple of days,' read the NHC's most recent Tropical Weather Outlook.

'Interests in those locations, in addition to those in Central America, should continue to monitor the progress of this system.'

The National Hurricane Center said the system has a 60 percent chance of strengthening into a tropical depression by Thursday evening and an 80 percent chance of doing so by Sunday evening.

'A tropical depression is likely to form over the next several days if the system remains over open waters while moving westward at about 15 mph through the Windward Islands and into the Caribbean Sea.

'Another Air Force Reconnaissance mission is scheduled to investigate this system tomorrow morning, if necessary.'

It comes as the death toll from Hurricane Ian continued a grim and steady climb after obliterating communities in Florida.

Rescue crews continue their search for survivors, as residents come to grips with their losses and many grapple with the long and daunting path to recovery.

As of Tuesday, at least 109 people have been recorded killed by the Hurricane, 105 in Florida and 55 in Lee County.

The Florida Medical Examiners Commission reported a death in Martin County, an additional death in Manatee County and an additional death in Sarasota County attributed to Hurricane Ian, according to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement.

Thus far, four people in North Carolina have also died.

Ian descended on Florida as a devastating Category 4 hurricane last Wednesday, with residents cut off from the mainland and hundreds-of-thousands of people left without power.

More than 400,000 residents went without power according to PowerOutage.us. with Lee and Charlotte county hit the hardest seeing 208,263 and 75,721 customers affected respectively.

The storm also saw residents left homeless and many government officials dealing with the recovery efforts, reported CNN.
