Heads up, Floridians! If she survives Hispanola you are under the gun!

Emily storms the eastern Caribbean

(CNN) -- Watches and warnings went up across the eastern Caribbean early Tuesday as Topical Storm Emily churned through the region, the National Hurricane Center said.

At 5 a.m. ET, Emily had maximum sustained winds of 40 mph (65 kph), according to the center. It was located about 245 miles (390 km) southeast of San Juan, Puerto Rico.

The storm was charging to the west at 16 mph (26 kph) and was expected to gradually strengthen over the next two days, the forecast said.

"On the forecast track, the center of Emily will move across the northeastern Caribbean Sea today and approach the island of Hispaniola tonight and Wednesday," the hurricane center said.

Poor Haiti! :candle

They won't get hurricane force winds - thank goodness - but they will probably get torrential rain, mud slides, etc.

Just what most of them don't need given the lack of housing after the earthquake.


Miami (CNN) -- Tropical storm warnings and watches were in effect across large portions of the northern Caribbean on Wednesday as Emily advanced toward the Dominican Republic and Haiti, the National Hurricane Center said.

Emily is expected to strengthen slightly before moving over Hispaniola -- the island the two nations share -- by late Wednesday.

Emily was continuing to move west at 14 mph (22 kilometers per hour), but the weather service said it expects the storm to turn to the northwest over the next couple of days.

The storm's maximum sustained winds remained at 50 mph (85 kph) and extended north and east of the storm's center up to 115 miles (185 kilometers) at 8 a.m. Wednesday, forecasters said.

A tropical storm warning was in effect for Puerto Rico, including the outlying islands of Vieques and Culebra; the Dominican Republic; Haiti; the southeast Bahamas; and the Turks and Caicos Islands. The warning means tropical storm conditions are expected within the next 36 hours.

The forecast also suggests Emily could skirt the east coast of Florida by early Saturday, but no watches or warnings were posted for the U.S. mainland as of Wednesday.
