Elsa moves through Caribbean

The National Hurricane Center downgraded the year’s first hurricane from a category 1 to a tropical storm on Saturday as it raked over the southern part of Haiti and the Dominican Republic. Tropical Storm Elsa caused one death on the island of St. Lucia and two in the Dominican Republic. Haiti reported three people injured from fallen trees, and the storm brought heavy rain to central Cuba on Monday.

Where will it hit in the United States? Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis declared a state of emergency in 15 counties, including Miami-Dade, where a condominium building collapsed last week. Forecasters predicted Elsa would head toward the opposite, western side of Florida after leaving Cuba late Monday.
