New Storm Threatens Bahamas
A new storm is threatening the Bahamas just days after Hurricane Dorian killed at least 50 people and left 1,300 missing.
Winds of 30mph were sweeping the islands while between two and four inches of rain were expected to fall over the weekend, caused by a tropical disturbance which forecasters predict has an 80 per cent chance of building into a tropical depression or even a tropical storm.
Should it become a tropical storm it will be named Humberto.
A warning was in effect for the Northwestern Bahamas, including the Abaco islands and Grand Bahama, which bore the brunt of Dorian. The storm was travelling at about 6mph on Friday but was expected to pick up speed over the weekend.
It was heading east towards Florida and was predicted to hit the US coast on Saturday, the Miami-based National Hurricane Centre said.
