Tropical Storm Nicole strikes Cuba causing floods and mudslides

41816.jpegNewly formed Tropical Storm Nicole soaked much of Cuba on Wednesday while causing floods and landslides that toppled bridges, knocked out power and killed at least two people in hard-hit Jamaica.

The storm had sustained winds of 40 mph (65 kph) and it was not expected to grow much further as it passes over the ocean east of Florida on a track that could carry it over parts of the Bahamas by evening, according to the U.S. National Hurricane Center in Miami.

It said the sprawling system could still cause heavy rains and spawn tornadoes in Florida, however, The Associated Press reports.

Nicole has since become untrackable, according to a National Hurricane Center advisory at 5 p.m. East Coast time.

The disappearance of Nicole doesn't mean that New York and the rest of the U.S. East Coast will be spared heavy rains starting overnight, said Carl Erickson, senior meteorologist at commercial forecaster AccuWeather Inc. in State College, Pennsylvania.

"The weather forecast hasn't changed much, you just can't attach a name to it," Erickson said. "Regardless whether Nicole existed or not, the situation was going to remain the same, a tremendous amount of tropical moisture is coming up the East Coast."

Flood watches are now posted from South Carolina to New Hampshire in advance of the storm, according to the National Weather Service, Bloomberg says.
