Tropical Storm Emily Soaks The Caribbean

ROUSEAU, Dominica (AP) — A weather official in Dominica warned people to stay indoors as Tropical Storm Emily passes close to the Caribbean island.

Senior Acting Meteorological Officer Cheryl Etienne Lebanc issued the warning as the storm was within 50 miles (80 kilometers) of the island and winds were at 40 mph (64 kph).

Lebanc said the worst of the storm had yet to hit. Tourists hunkered down at resorts on an island known for its rugged, natural beauty.
The U.S. National Weather Service said Emily was 350 miles (563 kilometers) southeast of Puerto Rico. It was moving west at 17 mph (27 kph).

Tropical storm warnings were in effect for Puerto Rico, Guadeloupe, St. Kitts and Nevis, Antigua and smaller islands in the area.
