Storm tracks toward Bermuda
CHARLOTTE AMALIE, U.S. Virgin Islands — The outer bands of Tropical Storm Rafael drenched the Caribbean's Northern Leeward Islands on Sunday as its center steadily moved over open ocean on a possible track toward Bermuda.
There were no immediate reports of any significant damage or injuries in the Caribbean islands as the center of the tropical storm churned toward the north-northwest at about 10 mph. By late Sunday afternoon, it was about 185 miles north-northeast of San Juan, Puerto Rico, and had winds of about 60 mph.
Forecasters at the U.S. National Hurricane Center in Miami said Rafael could strengthen into a hurricane by late Monday as it spins over the open Atlantic.
Rafael could then approach the wealthy British Atlantic territory of Bermuda late Tuesday.
